RT-UK Exclusive: No "Star Trek" for McAvoy


In a classic case of never believing anything the tabloids tell you, it's with a certain bit of disappointment that Rotten Tomatoes UK can exclusively reveal that James McAvoy isn't in line for Scotty in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reinvigoration. Back to Article

There goes one of the 2 recasting rumors that didn't make me practically cry. Gary Sinise is the only other bearable choice to me so far. But money means money and Matt Damon would mean money no matter what he was in, and Star Trek needs money. I guess I'd probably see a new Star Trek no matter what though. Hopefully (though impossible) whatever happens will work out like Daniel Craig did with Bond.

I highly doubt this movie will be about the academy, I also doubt they will be recasting the entire original crew. No one has read the script yet.

My guess is that they will use the original series timeline and there may be flashbacks but it will not be a remake...Abrahms has even said it won't be a remake. Time travel has been a huge part of the Trek story...I suspect this film will use it in some way.

Recasting would destroy Trek...I am falling asleep at just the thought.

Reboot does not necessarily mean revision. Paramount has too much money wrapped into 30 years of Trek to start all over. It will tie in to the other series...

I am up for bets.
