William Shatner would consider returning to STAR TREK with some anti-aging technology

In the years William Shatner has spoken about the possibility of returning to the role of Captain Kirk in a Star Trek project, and he appears to be holding the door open.

During a recent interview with Canadian Press the actor explained that he would not rule out returning as Captain Kirk in a new film Star Trek project if the script impressed him.

Shatner said: “It’s an intriguing idea. It’s almost impossible. But if it was such a great role and so well written and if there was a reason to be there not just to make a cameo, but if there was an actual reason for the character to appear, I might consider it.

Now, Shatner is 93 years old, and if he had come back for… Star Trekhe wouldn’t mind some of that rejuvenating technology being used on him.

The actor added: “[It] It takes years off your face, so that in a movie you can look 10, 20, 30, 50 years younger than you are.”

Harrison Ford went through that process in Indiana Jones and the Quadrant of Destinyand in the end it turned out great!

As for how Kirk could return, why did he die in the 1994 film Generations of Star Trekwhich is the last time Shatner appeared in the iconic sci-fi franchise, Shatner had already thought of it.

He shared his idea, saying, “A company that wants to freeze my body and brain for the future might be one way to do that. “We’ve frozen Captain Kirk’s brain here.” There is a scenario. “Let’s see if we can bring some of this back, some salt, some pepper. Oh, look at that. Here comes Captain Kirk!’”

I seriously doubt we’ll see Shatner as Kirk again, but is that something you’d like to see happen?

At the moment, Paramount Pictures is still trying to figure out what to do with the film franchise. For some reason they couldn’t get their shit together.

The latest news on the matter concerns studies Andor director Toby Haynes will direct from a screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith. That film is said to be set decades before the 2009 original Star Trek characteristic.
