In the last Star Trek movie, we saw the return of an original Star Trek legend, when the Zachary Quinto young version of Spock, came face to face with the Leonard Nimoy old version of the character. Now, new Captain Kirk actor Chris Pine, has teased that there could be a possibility of seeing the return of the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, in the new Star Trek sequel.
Pine explained, “It just isn’t, quite honestly, my decision to make. I think Mr. Shatner will forever be Captain Kirk. I think it would be, certainly, an interesting thing to bring him back. I don’t know if he necessarily wants to at this point or not. But it’s not my decision.” Chris then went on to talk about the first time he ever met William Shatner, at a charity event.
Pine added, “It was great. It was a very brief moment. It was at his charity event, so it had nothing to do with us meeting. It was more about raising money for his charity. But he was a lovely guy, really complimentary and very nice.” Star Trek 2 has had more than its fair share of delays but it appears to be making good progress now. Star Trek 2 is expected to be released in 2013.
