In late February 2005, Rick Berman told Variety that screenwriter Erik Jendresen, producer Jordan Kerner, and former Paramount Television president Kerry McCluggage were attached to the project. This film had tentatively been given the title of Star Trek: The Beginning and, according to Jendresen, would have focused on the beginning days of the United Federation of Planets and the war with the Romulan Empire. In April 2006, however, Jendresen said that after shake-ups in Paramount's management, the project was no longer going forward.
However, not long afterward, on April 20, 2006, Hollywood trade paper Variety reported that a new Star Trek film will be produced and directed by J. J. Abrams, who is aiming for a 2008 release. Abrams is the director and co-writer of the film Mission: Impossible III and is the creator and producer of several television series including Lost, Felicity, and Alias. Later in the day, the official Paramount Pictures Star Trek Web site, StarTrek.com, confirmed the report. According to the Variety article and StarTrek.com, the movie will feature a young Kirk and Spock at Starfleet Academy and on their first mission together.
On April 27, 2006, it was announced by J. J. Abrams through a number of news sources that he may not direct the next Star Trek film, but that he has the option to direct. He confirms he will produce, but has not yet taken the option to direct the film. He states he is "furious" at the inaccurate reports.
Recently, a rumor indicated the movie might end up being about The Romulan War. If so, the film could feature the crew from Star Trek: Enterprise.
The film will be written and executive produced by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (co-writers of Mission: Impossible III and the highly anticipated Transformers film).Source(s): Please don't forget to choose a best answer after 24 hours! =)

My best friend said he heard on the radio that Matt Damon was going to play a young Kirk. I dunno. We'll see.
