Anton Yelchin's Role Will Not Be Re-Cast in 'Star Trek' Series

Anton Yelchin will be making one of his final appearances on screen in the upcoming film Star Trek Beyond and his role of Chekov will not be re-cast for the series.

JJ Abrams, who directed the first two films in the rebooted franchise and produced the third movie, spoke out in an interview with the Toronto Sun.

“I would say there’s no replacing him,” JJ said. “There’s no re-casting. I can’t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better.”

Anton died on June 19 in a freak accident after his Jeep rolled down his driveway and crushed him against a gate.

Chris recently revealed that he gathered the cast at his home to mourn the death of their co-star Anton Yelchin.

Zachary Quinto Pays Tribute to Anton Yelchin on 'Late Show'

Zachary Quinto walks his dogs during an afternoon outing on Friday (July 1) in New York City.

The night before, the 39-year-old Star Trek: Beyond actor appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and talked about the death of his co-star Anton Yelchin.

Zachary called Anton a “beautiful guy” and that he doesn’t “even know how to talk about it.”

“We already knew that this would be a really bittersweet experience because of the loss of Leonard [Nimoy] last year,” he said. “But this has just been absolutely devastating for all of us. I think our goal just has to be to celebrate his incredible life and honor him as much as we can. It was a terrible loss, I think not only for us, but also to the industry and audiences. He was such a talent.”

Anton Yelchin Died Within One Minute of Tragic Car Accident

Anton Yelchin died quickly after he was pinned against his security gate by his Jeep, sources close to the investigation told TMZ.

The 27-year-old actor was pinned against the gate and the Jeep reportedly crushed his lungs. It is believed that Anton passed away within one minute of the tragic accident.

The police are currently going through the security camera footage at Anton‘s home to see if the accident was captured on film.

The Jeep that Anton was driving was recalled recently as there was a problem with the e-shift where drivers would think they had put the car in park, though it was actually in neutral. You can watch a demonstration of the gear shifting process in the below video.
