Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine and John Cho reunited with producer J.J. Abrams this weekend to honor their late co-star, Anton Yelchin. They were all spotted at the late actor's photo exhibit at the Other Gallery in Los Angeles on Saturday, where 40 of the actor's photographs were on display. Others who were spotted in attendance at the event on Saturday include Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Susan Sarandon and Demi Moore.
E! Online reports that all 40 of these pieces are for sale, with all of the proceeds going to the Anton Yelchin Foundation, which helps empower children and filmmaking students. The exhibit opens to the public today, November 7, and will stay open through December 31. The actor's photography work has been described as, "experimental, provocative and surrealist."
Anton Yelchin shockingly passed away at the age of 27 this summer, after a freak accident at his home. The actor was crushed by his own car, a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which had rolled down his driveway and pinned him against a concrete mailbox. The actor's death also spawned a class-action lawsuit against Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The lawsuit claims that Fiat Chrysler intentionally covered up fatal design flaws and deaths from the defects.
After the actor's shocking death, producer J.J. Abrams confirmed that they will not re-cast Anton Yelchin's character Pavel Chekov in Star Trek 4. The producer said it's too early to tell how Chekov's absence in Star Trek 4 will be handled, but he said that it's possible they could kill off the character, although they have to find the right approach to do so. Star Trek 4 was recently announced, but no release date or production start date has been confirmed.
Paramount did reveal that they are bringing back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, Captain James Tiberius Kirk's (Chris Pine) late father, who was seen in the opening moments of 2009's Star Trek. Paramount's announcement revealed that James will actually get to meet his father in Star Trek 4, but it isn't known how he'll actually get to meet his father for the first time.
