First confirmation - Michael Giacchino doing the score. I consider that good news.
Second confirmation - JJ Abrams directing the film. Could be worse.
Third confirmation - Matt Damon as Cpt. Kirk. Adrian Brody as Spock. Gary Sinise as Dr. McCoy. If it's all true...that's pretty amazing. As hard as it is for me to envision anyone else in those iconic roles...these three? This could be fun.
No? Just have a look at the IGN article with the three stars pix. They work.
