July 26th, 2015 by Marc Comments


It looks like the cast of Star Trek Beyond has just become a little more ass-kicking.

The Raid star Joe Taslin has signed up for the sci-fi sequel.

The actor, who worked with director Justin Lin when he played a villain in Fast & Furious 6, has not been confirmed for any role in particular yet.

When we hear more, so will you, but it certainly implies a more physical movie, at least with a good fight scene or two.

Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Cho and Idris Elba. It’s directed by Justin Lin and is set to enter Earth’s atmosphere on July 8th, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
