Original Spock Chats About New "Trek"

by | August 29, 2006 | Comments

No, no, don’t get your panties in a bunch. As much as we love Leonard Nimoy, we’re not expecting to see him pop up in any new "Star Trek" movies — but apparently he does have a clause in his contract that says he’s allowed to ‘veto’ any new actors vying for the Spock character…

From The Toronto Star by way of IGN FilmForce: "(Nimoy)’s not in the loop on the new "Star Trek" prequel film, either. Nevertheless, "Trek" remains a part of Nimoy’s life, and he attends several conventions each year while maintaining his friendship with longtime friend and collaborator William Shatner.

While Nimoy has no inside info on the new film, he did make an interesting comment — that he has the contractual right to approve the casting of any other actor for the role of Spock. Nimoy hasn’t said whether he’ll exercise that right, but it does allow him to at least have some input in the upcoming film."

…and… "In other news related to the new movie, writer Roberto Orci has confirmed on the official "Transformers" message board that he’s begun writing the "Trek XI" script. "I think it’s going really well," said Orci, "but I don’t wanna jinx it!"
