He said: ''Idris, I heard there's a rumour he's been spoken to about stuff, so he may be in the film but he won't be a Klingon.''

Meanwhile, Simon also admitted that he felt under pressure to write the script for the upcoming movie.

He quipped: ''It's enormous pressure, I'm barely able to speak right now I'm so terrified, but no it's good, it's going well.

''You know we're working at it hard and I'm writing with a guy [Doug Jung], he's in LA I'm here. I was there last week, writing with him, he's going to come here next week and we'll just keep plugging away at it and hopefully come up with something that the fans like, everybody likes, not just the fans.''
