More Star Trek News

The other day I posted a story about someone named Zackary Quinto being close to inking the deal to play a young Mr. Spock in the upcoming Star Trek movie. Well, today at Comicon it was made official. What was also made official is that Leonard Nemoy will also reprise his role as Mr. Spock and that they are trying to find a way for Shatner to reprise his role as Kirk. Though no casing of a young Kirk as of yet. Also released today was a new teaser poster for the movie.

If you read the comments on that second link, someone called MP wants Jamie Bamber to play young Kirk. For those that don't know, Bamber plays Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama on Battlestar Galactica. I could see him as Kirk. He's not a big name star and he's well known by Sci Fi fans. I think that's a damn good suggestion.

So long as they don't screw it up. It all hinges on who they get to play Kirk as to whether or not I see it.

Tom Cruise as a young Kirk ? Say it's not so please say it's not so.

Russel Crowe as a bad guy in the film? That may be interesting.

This is still unannounced and just a rumor but worth mentioning.
