Shatner not in new Star Trek

WilliamShatner.jpgThe rumour that William Shatner was not going to be appearing in the new, J.J. Abrams Star Trek film is not a new one. Filmstalker has already covered it here. However it seems there is some truth to it at least. Shatner has posted a video on his ShatnerVision website, which seems to confirm the fact that he is not in it. Spock however would seem to have made it.

ShatnerVision through SCIFI Wire has the video, in it he says:

"There's a Star Trek movie, and I called Leonard, I said, 'Leonard, have you heard?' He said, 'Yes, I have.' I said, 'What do you mean?' He said, 'I've read the script.' I said, 'Is it a good script?' He says, 'Yeah.' I said, 'Am I in it?' And there was a pause. He said no, and then he began to laugh. I went through the phone as I grabbed him by the throat. He's in it. I'm not in it."

Not sure how bothered Shatner will be. It will be interesting to see just how big a part Spock will play though. Also let's hope this is true, and that Leonard Nimoy wasn't just pulling his leg. Do you want old Star Trek characters in the new film, or would you rather it was a totally new vision.
