Poor Trekkers/Trekkies. It hasn’t exactly been wedding cake and warm feelings heading into Star Trek Beyond, has it? Mixed feelings on December’s Star Trek Beyond trailer have hurt the momentum of the upcoming threequel a bit, so why not keep the party going with another development that might raise some questions about the film? Reshoots are on the way and a new actress (but a really freaking good actress) is a very late addition to the cast.
Yes, there’s still that July 22 release date staring back at the USS Enterprise, but that hasn’t stopped Emmy-minted thespian Shohreh Aghdashloo from hopping aboard Justin Lin’s sci-fi blockbuster-in-waiting. Deadline reports that Aghdashloo has been tapped as the High Command of the Federation, a job that probably has an awesome benefits package.
