William Shatner has been approached regarding a part in Star Trek 3.
Several days ago, Shatner had dismissed the rumor that he might appear in Star Trek 3 by saying “I don’t know anything about the current gossip. Nobody has contacted me. Right now, it’s just rhetoric to cause hype.”
But while at Wizard World this weekend, Shatner admitted that Producer J.J. Abrams had been in touch with him and that Shatner would be “delighted,” to make an appearance, provided the part was “meaningful.”
“So I get back from Australia, and it is all over the internet that the director held an interview and said they wanted Shatner and Nimoy to be in the next movie,” he said “I bet J.J. is frothing at the mouth.”
But he has no idea how they would get him into the movie legitimately. “How do you get me fifty years later into the movie?” he asked. “I know it’s science fiction, but even I couldn’t come up with an idea.”
