Star Trek Sequel to Feature SATC Alum

Sex and the City might not seem to go too well with Star Trek, but it appears that J.J. Abams chose Alice Eve – of SATC fame – to star in his newest sci-fi movie, Star Trek 2. There’s not an official deal, but word is that Paramount Pictures will ink a deal with the actress soon.

It’s just not clear who, exactly, Eve will be playing. It looks like the 29-year-old star will make an appearance as an altogether new character in this sequel. Other actresses vying for the part were Teresa Palmer and Hayley Atwell.

And even once this deal is official, there’s still one more role to cast, reportedly for a villain-type character.

The production of “Star Trek 2” is expected to kick off in early 2012 as the film is scheduled to open on May 17, 2013. So we’ll have to subsist on these tidbits of news as we get them, and wait another year and a half before we can see what transpires on-screen.
