After the success of the first reboot of Star Trek, director and producer J. J. Abrams promised a second film would be in the works. After Leonard Nimoy made a very prominent featured cameo in the first flick, it was a major question whether or not William Shatner would be next in line to make a cameo in the sequel. However, that is looking like it’s not the case.
Even though the film focuses around the development of Captain Kirk through actor Chris Pine, the actor who played him for the entire television series still won’t get his cameo. According to some reports, Shatner was a little peeved that he wasn’t asked to be a part of the original reboot so the rumor started to flutter that J. J. would maybe give him a shot. However, Will revealed at Calgary’s Comic Expo that even though he was become an acquaintance of J. J. Abrams lately, he will not be in Star Trek 2. And even though Leonard did play a hug role in the first film, he also will not be jumping on board for round 2.
It is looking like the rest of the main cast will return including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto who played a young Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, John Chu as Sulu and Zoe Saldana as Uhura. So what’s the plot looking like for the sequel?
It’s being said the sequel will be more focused around the villain of the film just as the original Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan did in 1982. But don’t be fooled, the sequel will not be a remake
