Star Trek news...

The next Star Trek film, under the watchful eye of JJ Abrams, is beginning to pick up speed. The re-imagining of the original crew has been generating some casting rumors of late...

- Eric Bana has signed on to play the villain, Nero
- Zachary Quinto (Sylar from Heroes) will be playing Spock
- Anton Yelchin is Chekov
- Zoe Saldana (soon to be in James Cameron's Avatar) is Uhura
- Leonard Nimoy is strangely returning as old Spock

And finally, we could potentially have Chris Pine (last seen in Smokin' Aces) as Captain Kirk. He's also set to star alongside George Clooney in White Jazz, but both films have similar schedules. If they can't work out a way for Pine to do both he'll have to choose between them.
