William Shatner Says He's Been Contacted By J.J. Abrams For Appearance In 'Star Trek 3'

29 September 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The rebooted "Star Trek" franchise has been an interesting one. Having to navigate the occasionally opposing purposes of creating something fresh for a contemporary audience while pleasing the diehard 'Trek' fanbase has been tricky. 2009's "Star Trek" seemed to get the balance right, even if cramming Leonard Nimoy in the story was an unnecessary bit of fan service. However, the 2013 sequel stumbled, with the film turning Zachary Quinto's Spock into a rock 'em sock 'em action hero and thus ending up barely resembling anything like the show Gene Rodenberry created decades ago. But can the return of the Enterprise's original captain create a course correction? J.J. Abrams hope so. Abrams having handed off the reins to director Robert Orci for the reboot's third installment, it would appear that plans are afoot to bring back Captain Kirk one more time. With rumors running pretty high last week, William Shatner has »

‘Star Trek 3′ Gets Properly Shatnered?

28 September 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Captain himself has let the Tribble out of the bag regarding plans for the latest Star Trek film. It’s still in development stages, but William Shatner just revealed at Wizard World Nashville that J.J. Abrams called him out of the blue with the following suggestion:

I’m calling because the director of Star Trek, the next movie, has had an idea where you might be involved, so I’m calling to find out whether you would be interested.

And the response from the man who famously expressed bewilderment over his non-inclusion in the reboot?

‘It depends on what you do with the character, but I would be delighted…’  They have an idea that… they might want Leonard and myself in it… I would love to do it. But how do you get me fifty years later into the movie? I mean how do you rationalize it. I know it’s science fiction, »

Jay Z Brought Out Beyoncé to Sing ‘Holy Grail’ and ‘Young Forever’

28 September 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Celebrities and celebrity musicians from Hugh Jackman and Zachary Quinto to No Doubt and a pregnant Alicia Keys gathered last night in Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival, which aims to end extreme poverty by 2030. (To get a free concert ticket, attendees had to pledge to do something for the cause such as sign a petition or tweet at global leaders.) But the mother of all celebrities, Beyoncé, came out and upstaged them all, when she performed "Holy Grail" and "Young Forever" alongside her husband Jay Z, the headliner. At the end of the former, Hova bellowed, "That's real life, New York!" Some of you will speculate as to why they're performing a song about a very tumultuous relationship amid rumors of an impending divorce. Maybe they're just trolling you. Or maybe it's just a song. Watch it below:And then they performed Jay's "Young Forever" from The Blueprint »

William Shatner confirms he has been approached about Star Trek 3

28 September 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago we heard a rumour suggesting that William Shatner is wanted for a cameo as James T. Kirk in the upcoming third instalment of Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek franchise, and while Shatner subsequently took to Twitter to deny the speculation, he has now admitted that he has been approached by producer J.J. Abrams with a view to returning in his signature role in what will be the 50th anniversary of the sci-fi series. Speaking at Mashville Wizard World Comic-Con yesterday, Shatner admitted that he’d had a phonecall from Abrams to sound out his interest in a cameo in Star Trek 3:

“So [Abrams] calls and says ‘I’m calling, Bill, because the director of the Star Trek movie, the next one, has had an idea where you might be involved in it. So I am calling to see if you would be interested.’ I said ‘Oh, »

William Shatner confirms Star Trek 3 approach

28 September 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

William Shatner has claimed that he has been approached for the new Star Trek movie.

The Captain Kirk actor previously denied rumours that he would make a cameo in the upcoming sequel, telling Twitter followers that it was "just rhetoric to cause hype".

It was suggested that Shatner's Kirk would reunite with Leonard Nimoy's Spock during a scene in Star Trek 3.

During an appearance at the Wizard World Nashville Comic-Con (via Trek Movie), Shatner appeared to backtrack on earlier denials, admitting that producer Jj Abrams had been in touch.

Asked if he would be interested in a part, Shatner said: "Oh, yeah. If it is meaningful."

He said that he would be "delighted" to make an appearance, before adding that he had been sworn to secrecy.

"So I get back from Australia, and it is all over the internet that the director held an interview and said they »

William Shatner Says 'Star Trek 3' Rumor Is Just Hype

24 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, it was rumored that director Roberto Orci wants to reunite Old Kirk William Shatner and original Spock Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek 3. William Shatner has now stepped forward on Twitter to respond to these reports.

While the Star Trek 3 script is said to include a scene featuring William Shatner as the much older version of Captain Kirk, the legendary actor claims he knows nothing about that. He hasn't been contacted, and that Paramount, Roberto Orci and his team are just using him to create hype for the movie.

Check out his official tweet:

Let's talk St. I don't know anything about the current gossip. Nobody has contacted me. Right now it's just rhetoric to cause hype.

William Shatner, Roberto Orci respond to Star Trek 3 Captain Kirk rumours

24 September 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

William Shatner and Star Trek director Roberto Orci have addressed rumours that the original Captain Kirk will return to the series.

Rumours broke yesterday claiming that Roberto Orci, Jd Payne and Patrick McKay's script featured a scene for Shatner's Kirk that would reunite him with Leonard Nimoy's Spock.

Orci took to fansite TrekMovie to comment on the speculation, saying: "Love no win scenarios. In theory, damned either way."

He continued: "Not in my interest to confirm or deny anything because it limits my options while maintaining my integrity as a truth teller. The movie is not the movie till it is in the theatre. Until then, everything is a rumour."

Shatner himself responded to the rumours on social media with the following pinned tweet:

The directorial debut of “Big Bang Theory” star Simon Helberg, “We’ll Never Have Paris,” has been acquired for North American rights by Orion Releasing.

Report: William Shatner will have an 'integral' cameo in 'Star Trek 3'

23 September 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) If the latest "Star Trek 3" rumor pans out, Leonard Nimoy might experience a "Trek" reunion in the rebooted franchise’s next installment. Badass Digest has a hunch there’s a role for William Shatner, should the veteran actor wish to reprise his most famous role. Nimoy played a big part in the previous two J.J. Abrams-helmed "Trek" movies, but classic Kirk has yet to make a return. A proposed Shatner cameo in 2009′s "Star Trek" was cut from the script before filming began, a fact that apparently dashed the actor’s desire to don a Starfleet uniform one more time. If the rumor is true, however, Shatner’s a shoo-in for “Trek 3.” Badass Digest calls this cameo “plot-driven” and “integral,” implying that it will be hard to remove from the current script barring a major overhaul. The website also notes that this cameo would reteam the original »

William Shatner in Talks to Appear in Star Trek 3

23 September 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The original Captain Kirk may be back on the big screen. Star Trek 3 director/writer Roberto Orci has written a scene where William Shatner could make one last appearance as the iconic character. It would be his first time revisiting the character in 20 years.

The modern reboot of the Star Trek franchise has kept a link to the classic version in the form of Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock. Now, another original character may be beaming into the revamped Trek universe. James Tiberius Kirk is likely to show up in the next film.

William Shatner has made no secret of the fact that he would love a part in the rebooted Star Trek film series. He was, in fact, meant to have a cameo in the 2009 Star Trek reboot but was ultimately dropped from the final script. The scene would have had Nimoy’s elder Spock using a hologram »

William Shatner to reprise Captain Kirk role in Star Trek 3?

23 September 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

William Shatner could reprise his role as Captain Kirk in the upcoming Star Trek sequel.

The script for the latest instalment in the science fiction saga, from Roberto Orci, Jd Payne and Patrick McKay, reportedly features a part for the character Shatner originated in the '60s TV series.

According to Badass Digest, the storyline will include an on-screen meeting between Shatner's Kirk and Leonard Nimoy's Spock.

The scene is said to be "plot-driven and integral enough that it might just survive any future revisions".

Shatner and Nimoy haven't appeared in a Star Trek movie together since 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Shatner's last appearance as Kirk was in 1994's Star Trek: Generations.

Jj Abrams's 2009 Star Trek movie, which rebooted the series with Chris Pine as Kirk and Zachary Quinto and Nimoy playing Spock across two timelines, originally featured a cameo for Shatner's Kirk in the »

Rumor: ‘Star Trek 3′ Script Features ‘Integral’ Appearance by Old Kirk

22 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

J.J. Abrams’ glossy big screen reboot of the Star Trek franchise has so far been successful enough to warrant a third film in the series, which is scheduled to release in 2016 with screenwriter and producer Roberto Orci taking over directing duties while Abrams is busy with another major sci-fi property, Star Wars. With the first draft of the movie’s script having been completed last month, we’re now eagerly awaiting the first story details.

We already have a good idea of when Star Trek 3 will begin filming. Between actor Zachary Quinto’s estimate that production will get going within the next six months and Orci’s decision to back out of ...

"Star Trek 3" Filming & Story Details Emerge

19 September 2014 8:32 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It certainly looks like production on a third "Star Trek" is gearing up. Following comments from Zachary Quinto earlier this week that shooting would begin sometime early in 2015, several other indicators appear to have confirmed that news.

First up, Deadline reports that the film's writer and likely director Roberto Orci has had to drop out of serving as the executive producer of the big screen "Power Rangers" reboot due to a scheduling conflict with his "Star Trek 3" obligations. Lionsgate reportedly has no plans to change the 'Rangers' current July 22nd 2016 release date.

Then comes word from Trek Movie who claims to have a source within the production and even a rough start of shooting date - February 15th 2015. According to them, the third film in the series will begin years after the events of "Star Trek Into Darkness". Specifically it's scheduled to take place several years into the crew's proposed five year mission. »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Star Trek: The Compendium’ Provides Victory Lap for Revitalized Franchise

18 September 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – With J.J. Abrams not involved with the creation of a third “Star Trek” movie, a compendium of his work within the franchise only seems fitting. Loaded with special features but only a few new ones, this disc set is a strong choice for those who don’t already have both entertaining blockbusters in their collection.

Even better, it’s a good choice for any “Star Wars” fans looking to feel a new hope about the choice of Abrams for the highly-anticipated “Episode VII” installment.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

In just two films, Abrams and his filmmaking crew have successfully revitalized the “Star Trek” brand to the multiplex mainstream, adding a new edge to the previous elements that were in the “Star Trek” niche. The progression has certainly been gradual. In my book, the 2009 film “Star Trek” is a fun popcorn movie that pushes some expectations, but has a flat villain (Eric Bana »
