Today we caught up with actor Eric Bana, who was promoting his upcoming film The Time Traveler's Wife, and he revealed that his role in one of the year's biggest films was a one-time-only deal. Bana confirmed to us exclusively that he will not reprise his Nero character in a sequel to Star Trek.
We reported last month that Star Trek writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have already begun planning the script to the sequel, but they never mentioned Nero specifically and it seems that Bana will not come back for the part.
We'll certainly keep you posted on any and all breaking news items dealing with a Star Trek sequel as soon as we have more information. The Time Traveler's Wife stars Eric Bana, Rachel McAdams, Ron Livingston, Jane McLean and will be released nationwide on August 14.
