It has been suggested that actor Zachary Quinto could be set to walk away from the role of Spock in the Star Trek movies, after Star Trek Into Darkness is released. Zachary was talking about taking his career in a new direction when he hinted that he may be finished with Spock.
Quinto explained, “It’s like an era of association with certain roles – a specific part like Spock, or a kind of part, like Sylar — is coming to an end.” This has led to many people believing that he is suggesting that he will not be returning to the role of Spock for any future Star Trek movies.
There has been no official word of any more Star Trek movies being made, although writer and producer Damon Lindelof has admitted that there have been discussions about the possibility of another instalment. Meanwhile, it is believed that the majority of the main cast were signed on for two sequels so will would be expected to return for another Star Trek film.
As well as starring Zachary Quinto, Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Alice Eve. The movie is once again directed by J.J. Abrams and is set to be released on May 17, 2013, with the first trailer being released next month.
