William Shatner Could Make Cameo In STAR TREK 3
When Star Trek was rebooted by J.J. Abrams in 2009 they brought back Leonard Nimoy to have pivotal cameo. Nimoy wasn't the only original cast member to be offered a cameo, as William Shatner was originally included but they nixed that idea before filming. According to Badass Digest, it sounds like the original James T. Kirk will finally be included in the rebooted universe.
Leonard Nimoy has made cameos in 2009's Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, and now there is a chance that he and William Shatner will be reunited in Roberto Orci's Star Trek 3.
I have learned that the script for Star Trek 3 includes a scene that reteams Shatner and Nimoy onscreen as Kirk and Spock for the first time in canon since 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. It would be a pretty huge moment for fans of the franchise, and likely the last time we'll ever see Shatner as James T. Kirk in official continuity.
Is this just to appease the fans who haven't quite embraced the new universe? Probably, but Badass Digest says the role is "plot-driven." Thus, it has a good shot of retaining the script after it has gone through a polish or two.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organisation has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was directed by J.J. Abrams ("Super 8"), from a screenplay written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Returning for the sequel are Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoë Saldana, and Anton Yelchin. Joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
