Of course, details on this super secret project this far are under tight lock and key, but Variety reports that Eve beat out folks like Teresa Palmer and Hayley Atwell for a role that will be a new one to the Star Trek universe. And that's all. We're mostly just glad Eve is getting a shot at a major role after losing out on "Man of Steel," "X-Men: First Class" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" and likely being wasted in next summer's "Men In Black 3." She's got a host of other movies on the way -- from the low budget thriller "ATM" to the gothic mystery "The Raven" to the indie "Decoding Annie Parker" -- but this above all of them will be a major career boost, and her highest profile gig to date.
Michael Giacchino is scoring the pic and Benicio Del Toro will play the villain in the J.J. Abrams-directed movie that will shoot in 2012 in 3D, and hit theaters on May 17, 2013.
