The current rumor surrounding Star Trek 3 is that the film will reunite the first Captain Kirk, William Shatner, with the first Spock, Leonard Nimoy.
However, as of right now there is just one problem regarding that scenario.
William Shatner doesn't know anything about it.
The actor took to his Twitter to put a stop (temporary?) to the notion he will be featured in Star Trek 3.
Shatner was actually said to be in the first J.J. Abrams movie at one time as well.
Let's talk ST. I don't know anything about the current gossip. Nobody has contacted me. Right now it's just rhetoric to cause hype.— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) September 23, 2014
Roberto Orci is directing Star Trek 3, which has a 2016 release date.
