While JJ Abrams is still trying to keep things secret on the plot front for Star Trek 2, new cast members are gradually being announced, even if we don’t know who’ll they’ll be playing. The latest addition is Robocop himself, Peter Weller, who Variety reports has joined the movie.
There’s absolutely no clue who he’ll play though. He joins Alice Eve and Benicio Del Toro (although his deal is still to be closed) in mystery new roles in the sci-fi sequel. Rumours have been sweeping around that Del Toro would be playing Khan. While Abrams has said very little about the movie, he has however stepped out to publicly deny that Khan is in the movie.
Shooting is due to start on the movie in January, for release summer 2013.
