Rumours have been dropped into the Sci-Fi Heaven news box today of a possible Tom Hanks appearance in the next Star Trek movie. According to our source, should Erik Jendresen’s script be chosen for production (Paramount executives are rumoured to still be analysing the script), Tom Hanks has been penned in as a possible star.

Tom Hanks, one of the movie industry’s most desired talents, previously worked with Erik Jendresen in writing a teleplay for the hit mini-series Band of Brothers.

The move would be a dramatic one for “Star Trek XI – The Beginning” and feature perhaps the biggest name to move into the franchise since Patrick Stewart took on the role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
