Despite rumours linking him to an appearance in Paramount Pictures’ Star Trek Beyond, last month saw William Shatner denying reports that he was set to return as James T. Kirk for the U.S.S. Enterprise’s latest adventure.
As yet, we haven’t seen Kirk in Paramount’s rebooted Trek universe, but Shatner has told The Hollywood Reporter that he’d “absolutely” reprise the role, assuming the producers can come up with an interesting storyline for his return.
“I would play an old Captain Kirk, absolutely,” said Shatner. “You would have [to have] an interesting character, not a cameo, like, ‘Here I am, aren’t I interesting?’ It’s the ongoing world; it’s the world within science-fiction. Yes, you age within the universe. Time goes on — but time bends, as well. There’s so many things you could do.”

Entertainment Tonight paid a visit to the set of the third instalment in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, Star Trek Beyond. Their behind-the-scenes video is fairly brief, but they do manage to get a few interesting tidbits from several of the returning cast members.
First up, Chris Pine (Captain Kirk) shows off the Enterprise’s new weapons bay and the larger model phasers that are on display there. Next, Karl Urban (Dr. McCoy) reveals that when this film kicks off, they’re already 2 years into their 5 year mission and the ship is showing signs of “wear and year.” Plus, the crew are sporting slightly modified, retro uniforms to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.
The most intriguing details come from Jon Cho (Mr. Sulu) however, as he states that Sulu has a daughter and is really starting to miss her being cooped up on the Enterprise with his crew-mates. »

The original Star Trek series was based around a "five-year mission." The end of the most recent movie in the rebooted franchise, Star Trek into Darkness, sent the crew of the Starship Enterprise on the same extended trip. Now we know exactly far into that mission Star Trek Beyond will pick up, and exactly how the long trip is impacting the crew. John Cho, the actor who plays Enterprise helmsman Hikaru Sulu, told Entertainment Tonight that the movie will open with the characters in ruts, and on each others' nerves, because of the extended period together. This makes sense given that Karl Urban reveals that we'll be finding the Enterprise a couple years into their big five-year mission: On this one you.ll notice that there.s been aging. It.s two years into the mission, so there.s wear and tear on the ship. It.s an interesting place »

For the past few years, fans have been campaigning for a sequel to Dredd, the 2012 big screen reboot of the iconic 2000Ad character Judge Dredd, which has earned the support of close to 140,000 signatures, not to mention the film’s stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby.
Well, with a movie sequel looking no closer to a reality, the organisers of the petition Bring Back Dredd have now shifted their focus towards a small screen follow-up, and are calling on the likes of Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime to step in.
“The clamour of the growing fanbase for more from the incredible world of the 2012 Dredd movie cannot be ignored,” the statement reads. “We call on TV and movie producers to step up to the plate and give us more, either through a pay-to-view TV series or a new movie!”

A new video teases little changes to the Enterprise and more for Sulu in Star Trek Beyond...
A new video from the set of Star Trek Beyond has just been released, and it's gone into a little more detail as to what to expect from the new movie.
The video showcases the latest evolution of the Enterprise a little. Furthermore, we learn more about John Cho's take on Sulu, and where he finds himself at the start of the new movie.
On top of that, Karl Urban has revealed that the copies of the screenplay were so secretive, that individual cast members' scripts had specific individual spelling mistakes in them, to allow them to be directly tracked back to that person.
Star Trek Beyond arrives in cinemas on July 22nd 2016. And here's that video...
Just a few weeks ago, fans got their first look at the upcoming sequel Star Trek Beyond with the release of the first trailer. While we don't know when the second trailer will arrive, Entertainment Tonight has released a new behind-the-scenes video, featuring the cast and crew. Franchise star Chris Pine revealed that this sequel will honor the franchise's past, including the recent passing of Leonard Nimoy. Here's what the actor had to say below.
"He was a special special man... I think his spirit has infused in this incarnation from the beginning... from the first film. and we miss him dearly and wish he could be a part of this but, you know, we know he's in a good place."
Star Trek Beyond is the sequel to 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness. Justin Lin takes over for J.J. Abrams as director. Simon Pegg, Doug Jung, Roberto Orci, John D. Payne and Patrick McCay all collaborated on the script. Pegg and Jung rewrote the script previously written by Orci, Payne and McCay. How much of the original script remains is unknown. The film will take much of the Enterprise crew off the ship, as it's destroyed by a new race of powerful aliens led by Idris Elba. The crew finds themselves split up on an unknown planet, seeking to reunite and make their way off the planet and join Star Fleet in the ongoing battle. Chris Pine plays Capt. James T. Kirk. Zachary Quinto plays Spock. John Cho plays Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu. Karl Urban plays 'Bones' Mcoy. Zoe Saldana plays Nyota Uhura and Anton Yelchin is Pavel Chekov. Pegg also returns as Scotty. »
In the many years that we've been running Den Of Geek, we don't think we've seen a fan crusade quite like the one pushing for a sequel to 2012's Dredd movie.
The Make A Dredd Sequel campaign has consistently pushed and battled for a follow-up movie, attracting over 100,000 names to its petition urging film companies to make one. Furthermore, it's had regular pushes to make sure the first film is backed, that's seen the film head to the top of Amazon sales charts.
Now, the campaign is changing focus a little.
Off the back of the success of Netflix/Marvel shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones, there's a growing belief that Dredd could work wonders on the small screen. As such, fans are being urged to push the petition still further, »
Back in September, it was rumoured that William Shatner could reprise the role of Captain James T. Kirk for this year’s Star Trek Beyond, with Shatner subsequently confirming that he’d been approached. However, it seems he’s now changed his mind, telling SFX Magazine that:
“There was never a conversation. It would have been interesting to see what their fertile imaginations could have done with somebody who is 20 years older than when Captain Kirk died and how they would have explained the difference in appearance. But that never came up. I’m sure they must have thought of it one time or another but I never had a substantial conversation about replaying the role.”

Gamesradar posted an excerpt from SFX Magazine featuring an exclusive interview with actor William Shatner. In the interview, the actor confirmed that he will not reprise his role as Captain James T. Kirk saying:
"There was never a conversation."
The only original "Star Trek" actor to reprise his role in the new films was the late Leonard Nimoy who appeared as Spock Prime in 2009's "Star Trek" and 2013's "Star Trek into Darkness", which were directed by J.J. Abrams.
"It would have been interesting to see what their fertile imaginations could have done with somebody who is 20 years older than when Captain Kirk died [in Star Trek Generations] and how they would have explained the difference in appearance. But that never came up. I’m sure they must have thought of it one time or another but I never had a substantial conversation about replaying the role.”

Star Trek: Into Darkness may not have been the fan-pleasing, critical darling that many had hoped it would be. However, it still offered some thrilling action with some brilliantly Christopher Nolan-esque themes and a fantastic performance from Benedict Cumberbatch.
Now, the third entry in the rebooted franchise looks to have embraced a much more light-hearted approach than its predecessor. Star Trek Beyond will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking franchise this year. But, now it looks as if the enterprise crew will have to blow out their candles without the help of the original Captain Kirk. Despite previous reports to the contrary, William Shatner has confirmed that he will not reprise his role in the sequel. Check out the quote below:
