Star Trek Movie Delayed Until Next Year

Star Trek LogoWell, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer to beam anyone up.

Those who made it out to see Cloverfield in the past few weeks got a sneak peek at another J.J. Abrams production: .  (If you haven’t seen the clip yet, you can view it after the jump.)  Unfortunately, a major part of that trailer is now no longer true.

The highly-anticipated prequel/sequel was slated to be released ‘Christmas 2008’.  What it should have said was ‘December….Give Or Take a Few Months.’

According to Variety, the movie’s premiere will remain ‘under construction’ until May 8, 2009.

The film was simply part of a major reshuffling in ‘s calendar.  In most cases, a changed date usually signals bad news; that’s not the case with Trek.  In fact, the studio believes the movie will benefit from this shift.

Actors involved in the next installment include Tyler Perry, , Zoe Saldana, Eric Bana, and Leonard Nimoy.

Tyler Perry Joins ‘Star Trek’ Film

Put Description Here - the man behind and - will be assuming a much smaller role for his next project.

The writer/producer/actor will be taking someone else’s direction while starring in the upcoming film.  (I believe this may be the first time he’s ever participated in something that didn’t have his name in the title.)  Perry will join a continuously expanding cast that already includes Eric Bana, Winona Ryder, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, John Cho and Leonard Nimoy. 

If the movie adds one more star, I believe it will have officially reached proportions.
