NUTS.

No it’s not the Walter Koenig (nuclear wessels) Chekov but the new one Anton Yelchin from Star Trek XI coming in 2009.

Yelchin is apparently in discussions to play Kyle Reese, father of John in Terminator 4 which also should be out in 2009.  Michael Biehn was the original Kyle Reese in the first Terminator.

So if thing work out Yelchin will be in two major scifi films in 2009.  I wonder who’ll they’ll cast as Kyle Reese’ brother – derek now played by   Brian Austin Green in Sarah Connor Chronicles.

YUP. Looks like Paramount isn’t just doing a one off with Star Trek XI which could be a good thing if the movie is any good.

In an interview with IGN , Anton Yelchin (playing Checkov) said that he had been signed on for three movies.

That clearly means Paramount is serious about this new Trek and is ensuring that if it is successful that they can milk the cast for everything they can.

And hey it also opens up the opporunity for Shatner to make an appearance in Star Trek XII or XIII!
