[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1579:]]Contrary to what we have heard before, both from Goerge Takei and Simon Pegg, now it seems there may be an original member of the Enterprise appearing in the Star Trek sequel.
Leonard Nimoy may be reprising as Spock according to a recent interview with CNN, via AirLockAlpha.
..remember we were talking about the new Star Trek movie. It was great, you did a great job in it. And we were just about talking about that just before ... will you be in another Star Trek movie?
Nimoy: Uhh, we're talking. We're talking.
Both Takei and Pegg stated no originals would be appearing in the Star Trek sequel, with Takei stating he thought it was a policy decision. Pegg stated rather coyly, "only if it involved time travel."
Production on Star Trek 2 is already underway; however, we learned the script is ever evolving, so an appearance by Leonard Nimoy wouldn't be out of the question.
The as-of-yet unnamed Star Trek sequel has a May 17th, 2013 release date in 3D, is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Chris Pine as Capt. James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov and John Cho as Hikaru Sulu.
