Despite having many sexy ladies and featuring singing and dancing, Daniel Day-Lewis' movie "Nine" has been a bit of a box office stinker. I hope this makes him reconsider playing Khan in the next Trek movie. Although he is no Ricardo Montalban, he is a decent actor.

We are not sure if they are going to use Khan. That is just a rumor. They are also looking into to doing an original story with a new villian.

an original story? Original?

Originality doesn't have much meaning in Hollywood anymore

I'm not too sure I get your point. Was Trek XI not original? I dont think (at least at this point) if the next film will be original or not.

IMDB have already listed Nestor Carbonell as Khan (rumoured). I don't know if that holds any weight at all?

They are still in script development and they have not even started the casting of the new movie so everything of that sort is just a rumor as of now.

Ain't that the truth.
I hear a remake involving  the Three Stooges is in production.
Now there is no way in hell anyone is going to convince me recasting the Stooges is a good idea.
That is sacrilege.
Nothing is sacred in Hollywood.

Although I wouldn't put it past VAB to do something as friggen awesome as that, it appears to be the work of another gentleman if you go to the website mentioned on the image.

All one has to do is look at the original 3 stooges productions where the recasting took place...

I don't think Benicio del Toro, Jim Carrey and Sean Penn were around back in those days.

Looks like a cross between the original NCC-1701 and the NX-01.
