Got quite a few emails coming in claiming that William Shatner will not have a part in Star Trek XI. Though we initially had our doubts, it is William Shatner who confirmed this information.
So, who is in Star Trek XI? How about Leonard Nimoy...
Star Trek XI Shatnerless
Though it is expected that an official casting announcement will be made at San Diego Comic-Con this month for Star Trek XI, William Shatner has already popped up to confirm that he himself has confirmed with an inside source that there is no part for him in the film.
Personally, I am kind of glad. If this eleventh installment is really a restart for the franchise, why the hell try to insert some of the old cast? That would be like doing a flashback to George Clooney in Batman Begins; nobody wants that!
Not all old cast are out, however, as it Shatner also claims that Leonard Nimoy will make an appearance. Check out the video:
As you might have already guessed, Nimoy's Spock will most likely appear as a flashback... or flashfoward? Eh, I don't get it.
Star Trek XI is supposedly on schedule to open to theaters
