William Shatner has already expressed through YouTube videos how upset he was that director JJ Abrams did not give him a role in the new “Star Trek” film. Even though he holds a bit of a grudge, he now tells the Australian Associated Press that he would love to be in the sequel. “I would be delighted to be in it,” said Shatner.
A sequel has already been announced and since the first film changed the fate of the Trek character, there is now a chance for Shatner to return as Captain Kirk.
But all this excitement about re-joining the franchise, hasn’t made Shatner any more interested in seeing the first movie. “I’m looking forward to [seeing] it. I hear it is wonderful and it has received some wonderful reviews,” he said.
