Paramount has announced that the sequel to JJ Abrams' successful reboot of the Star Trek franchise will hit cinemas on 29 June 2012.

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will return to script the as-yet-untitled follow-up, while Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof once again shares production credits with Abrams.

Abrams has not yet signed to helm the project, although according to the Internet Movie Database, most of the leading cast will return for the film.

The site says that William Shatner "is in consideration to return in this film as an aged James T Kirk". The thesp was a bit shocked to have missed an outing in Star Trek, despite Abrams apparently saying he "probably would have a part in the film".

Shatner spluttered back in 2007: "I couldn't believe it. I'm not in the movie at all. Leonard [Nimoy], God bless his heart, is in, but not me."

Time will tell if Shats is set to make a Kirk comeback, and if he does, he may face the Borg who the writers feel "are the most likely candidate to be the antagonists for this film", as IMDb teases. ®
