We know that Patrick Stewart has several new projects on the horizon. We've been keeping you updated about Blunt Talk, his comedy series for STARZ. We've told you about Hunting Elephants, the actor's comedy-thriller. You're surely aware that he narrates Ted 2. And to that list of enterprises, pardon the pun, let's add The Green Room, which just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The film casts Trek's former Captain Picard against type as, get this, a white supremacist.

Here's the official synopsis: "In the harrowing crime thriller The Green Room, a young punk rock band find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses."

Stewart plays Darcy, the owner of the venue. And Star Trek fans will be interested to know that the franchise's current Chekov, Anton Yelchin, tackles the role of the punk rock band's bassist. Keep an eye on StarTrek.com for details about The Green Room's theatrical release.
