Star Trek Movie News 11

It's been confirmed that Chris Pine has been cast as James T. Kirk and Karl Urban has been cast as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy.

So, that makes the official cast to date as such:
James Kirk - Chris Pine
Mr. Spock - Zachary Quinto & Leonard Nemoy
Dr. McCoy - Karl Urban
Uhura - Zoe Saldana
Pavel Checkov - Anton Yelchin
Hikaru Sulu - John Cho
Scotty - Simon Pegg
Nero - Eric Bana

With the roles of an unnamed Federation Captain, Captain Pike and Kirk parents to to be cast.

Is Shatner in or not? Who knows. I hope they do get him. He is Captain Kirk. And it seems the USS Enterprise may have a different design that what was in the original show. Not sure how I feel about that. You can't just change the design of the ship. That wouldn't be right. This isn't like doing a remake of Bionic Woman or even Battlestar Glactica. This is Star Trek. No show has had as much impact on the world. But if they added a little more detail to make it pop, that would be fine.
