William Shatner keen on Star Trek return as Captain Kirk

7 February 2016 11:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite rumours linking him to an appearance in Paramount PicturesStar 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.”

William Shatner says “there was never a conversation” about him returning as Kirk for Star Trek Beyond

7 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.”

It seems that Kirk would have featured in the movie, had Paramount not ditched Roberto Orci’s draft for the film and brought in Simon Pegg and Doug Jung to rewrite the script.
