I think this is Stewart and McKellan's last go around. The other OT actors have supporting roles and were on the set for a few weeks tops. Who doesn't need the exposure in Hollywood these days? Not like this project was beneath the likes of Anna and Halle. They need exposure and this is arguably the biggest film of the summer next year.
I'm 80% sure it's done after this. FC3 will be the stepping stone for the future.
If you're 80%. Then I'm 100% sure that we will see more from the OT cast.
You are underestimating their chance to return, a big part of the film's hype right now is because of them.

You could say the same thing to Storm and Rogue. FOX brought back the whole gang except for Rebecca/Kelsey (though their younger version are in the movie) and James/Famke/Aaron (their characters died in X3). And what's your reason for them not to bring back Banshee?
