Benedict Cumberbatch has been waxing lyrical about Star Trek director JJ Abrams describing him as ‘a God’.
Cumberbatch has enjoyed an incredible couple of years. Since hitting our screens as Sherlock Holmes back in 2010 he’s gone on to becoming something of a Hollywood darling with roles in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, The Hobbit and most recently bagging himself in a remake of intergalactic adventure Star Trek.
Directing Cumberbatch’s latest out is Abrams who has worked on titles such as cult hit Super 8, Lost and of course the 2009 take on Star Trek and it seems like the actor just can’t get enough of his new idol.
Opening up to BBC News Cumberbatch described the direction of Abrams film as ‘blindingly brilliant’ and went to state that ‘JJ Abrams is a God’.
There’s huge speculation around the new Star Trek film, which is expected to be released in May of next year. Even those already cast in the film are unable to reveal to the press or fans which parts they are playing but by the sounds of it whatever their role they’re in pretty safe hands.
