IGN Movies has learned from studio sources which actors may play Captain James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. Leonard Bones McCoy in Paramount's Star Trek XI.

The site claims to have confirmed the rumors that Oscar winner Matt Damon is indeed in talks with Paramount about playing the role of Jim Kirk, previously immortalized onscreen by Emmy winner William Shatner.

For the part of Kirk's Vulcan first officer Mr. Spock, Oscar winner Adrien Brody (King Kong, The Pianist) is in talks with Paramount to play the role. If cast, Brody would succeed Leonard Nimoy in a role that forever marked Nimoy's career.

IGN has also been told that Oscar nominee Gary Sinise -- currently seen on the small screen in CSI: NY -- is in talks for the role of Dr. McCoy, the ornery and politically incorrect ship's physician aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. The late DeForrest Kelley played Bones on TV.
