Over the weekend the rumor mill started churning with speculation that British actor Idris Elba would play a Klingon as the main villain in the next Star Trek film.

Simon Pegg, who has been busy writing STAR TREK 3 with Doug Jung, was asked about the the pressure he’s under to turn in a script that “everyone will like” and addressed the Elba rumors while speaking with Absolute Radio.

“It’s enormous pressure. I’m barely able to speak right now, I’m so terrified.” joked Pegg.

“It’s good. It’s going well. We’re working at it hard.” he said of the script writing process.

When asked whether Idris Elba will play a Klingon in the film, Pegg flatly denied the rumor, saying: “That’s not true.”

“I heard there’s a rumor he’s be spoken to about stuff — so he may be in the film, but he won’t be a Klingon.” Then laughing, Pegg says “Or maybe he will.”
