Production on the next Star Trek movie kicks off January 15, 2012.
And while we don’t yet know who the villain for the film may be, some interesting rumors are cropping up on-line.
Of course,we’ve heard for a months now the Klingons will be part of the second installment. But according to Think McFly Think, they won’t be the only familiar Trek icons to jump to the rebooted franchise.
The site says that the tribbles could be getting a make-over for the new Trek. It lists sources close to the production saying the Klingons will be “an intergalactic Taliban with their home-planet overrun by Tribbles. Yes, those Tribbles, here in the newly rebooted continuity viewed as “furry carnivorous creatures.””
The report also says the production is looking for filming locations to stand in for a famous Trek location. J.J. Abrams has reportedly been scouting out locations in Hawaii for a jungle-type world.
Of course, these are all rumors at this point and should be taken with a grain of salt. As soon as we hear something official, we’ll bring you all the details!
