Benicio Del Toro abandons Star Trek 2

Benicio Del Toro will no longer play the primary antagonist in Star Trek 2, Vulture reports.

Although director J.J. Abrams had been courting Del Toro for months, the two parties were forced to go their separate ways when they couldn’t agree on monetary issues.

It is unknown which villain from Trek’s rogues’ gallery will feature in the flick. Rumours persist that Khan – played by Ricardo Montalban in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khanwill indeed cause trouble for the crew of the Enterprise in the hotly anticipated sequel, but Abrams recently denied that being the case.

Shooting begins early next year. Star Trek 2 arrives in cinemas May 17, 2013.
