But still no James T. Kirk
Yahoo reports that the cast for the movie re-launch of Star Trek is shaping up.
Rumors abound as to what the story is about. It does appear that Nero is the bad guy, and will be a Romulan. This is an early adventure of the Enterprise crew, but the presence of Captain Pike complicates things for oldschool fans like me.
Seems the whole project is to make Trek ‘cool’ for a new generation of young, disrespectful, & unemployed slackers. Seems as good a financial bet as any, at this point, though.
I don’t have a good feeling about this, but I’ll give it a shot when it comes out on Christmas Day, 2008.
Here’s what we have so far.
|James Kirk||Chris Pine|
| Mr. Spock
|Captain Christopher Pike||?||?|
