Rachel Weisz Would LOVE to Be in Star Trek!
Collider: Anything potentially on the horizon that you’re looking at, you’re like, “You know what? I would love to do that series. “ Like all these different comic book adaptations that are happening. That you go-
RW: Yeah. You know what? I loved Star Trek. I mean, I couldn’t even believe how great, I meant to write (Star Trek director) J.J. Abrams a letter. I haven’t written it yet, though. I just thought- Didn’t you think it was tremendous?
RW: I just thought it was tremendous.
Collider: And it worked on several different levels. It worked, not just artistically, but also commercially. And it was accessible to people who weren’t necessarily fans of (the series).
RW: And I’m not a Trekkie. I mean, (Weisz’s longtime fiancé) Darren (Aronofsky) took me thinking, he says, “You’re gonna hate this.” Cause I didn’t grow up watching Star Trek. I mean, I, Dr. Spock, I mean, I vaguely know. But, I loved it. I absolutely—I thought the acting was just phenomenal. Really, really great. So, yeah! No, I’m totally open to doing a big, big blockbuster.
RW: Me? I would LOVE to be in the Star Trek sequel! Yeah! I would love to! I better write that letter to J.J.
Collider: Yeah, start crafting it now. I mean-
RW: Yeah, I would love to. No, I was really, wildly impressed by that. I thought it was an incredible piece of work. Yeah. It just had such a freshness and the acting was, the acting blew me away.
The idea of possibly having Rachel Weisz in the next Star Trek movie is a pretty cool one. She's a great actress and I would definitely see her as the Borg Queen (if the Borgs were to make an appearance in the sequel, who knows!) or maybe as Carol Marcus, James T. Kirk's love interest. But I would take Weisz as any Star Trek character J.J. Abrams would like to hand over to her.
What do you guys think. Would YOU like to have the Oscar winner as part of any future Star Trek film?
