Idris Elba could be the villain in the next Star Trek movie? Possibly.

According to Variety, Elba is in early talks to play a villain. Justin Lin will be directing the new film with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, and Anton Yelchin returning to production this June.

Details of Elba’s role is being kept under wraps, but there has been mentions of Klingons appearing in this film. Klingons appeared briefly in the last film Star Trek Into Darkness. They may have a bigger role in this film, which will be written by Pegg and Doug Jung.

J.J. Abrams will be producing the film, along with his partner Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison.

Known for his role as the dashing detective in BBC’s Luther, Elba is slowly taking Hollywood over with his parts in Thor, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Pacific Rim, and Prometheus. He will be seen next in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Disney’s The Jungle Book, indie film A Hundred Streets, Netflix’s Beasts of No Nation, and Bastille Day.
