Alice Eve Up For Star Trek 2
Playing a new character?

Alice Eve Up For Star Trek 2

We’re slowly but surely ticking off the things we need to hear to believe that the Star Trek sequel will really, finally be shooting soon, even with musk-centric tweets swapped between Simon Pegg (Scotty) and John Cho (Sulu). So far, we’ve got a script in the process of being refined, JJ Abrams on deck to direct and the distinct possibility that Benicio Del Toro will play the villain. Now comes word across subspace that Alice Eve is Abrams’ pick for a new role.

This being a Bad Robot production, nothing has yet leaked out about who or what (she could be a sexy killer robot!) Eve will play, but according to Variety’s sources, it’s likely that it’ll be a new character in the Trek universe. That said, we didn’t see Yeoman Rand in the first film, did we?

With Eve in place – and Del Toro likely – the cast is slowly filling out beyond returning stars Pegg, Cho, Chris Pine, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban and a squad of red shirted types who should probably be very worried about their immediate future.

With shooting set to start in January, Star Trek 2 is scheduled for May 17, 2013. The first person to make the comment (or write the headline) “phasers set to stunner” over the Eve casting will be chucked out of an airlock.

Reboot
chapel and rand could be refreshed as characters as uhura and scotty were in the last movie and given more depth than they had in the OS. More

Carol Marcus ?
Any thoughts that she could be playing a young Carol Marcus, mother to Kirk's son, David, as played by Bibi Besch in Wrath Of Khan ? Just a little less obvious a character.....and a good distraction for Kirk. More

I think I could live without either Yeoman Rand or Nurse Chapel, to be honest. Why should she be playing an existing character? Homaging the old series is one thing but there has to come a point where some original characters are created surely? More

Good For Alice
makes up for her losing out on role in 'x men-1st class'. she would have been better emma frost than her off 'mad men'. More

Alice Eve in Star Trek sequel
Hmm Rand could be a good call. Not too fussed who she is so long as she's in the miniskirt though. Del Toro is a good choice for the villain. He has the right look for an old school, TOS style Klingon. Gonna be a long 18 months More
