If it's crap ... We'll tell you
J.J. Abrams' upcoming sequel to his 2009 'Star Trek' reboot is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated movies of 2013. Getting the whole cast back, adding Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain, and now possibly bringing original Trek universe legend Leonard Nimoy back into the mix? Initially, it had been announced that no 'Star Trek: TOS' cast members would be featured in 'Star Trek 2,' a major disappointment for fans of the 2009 film, in which Nimoy played such a critical role. But recently, in an interview with CNN during Space Shuttle Enterprise's NYC flyover, he was asked whether he would be appearing in Abrams' sequel. His answer was enigmatic, but intriguing...
So, they're "talking." Of course, what we must consider here is whether Nimoy is referring to an actual negotiation for his return to Abrams' 'Star Trek' franchise or if he's simply being artfully elusive. However, I've never known Leonard Nimoy to be anything but honest in these situations and don't see why he wouldn't have just politely said, "no" if he weren't actually in talks to come back. In addition, Nimoy did visit the 'Star Trek 2' set back in January, so it's possible his visit inspired a new discussion of his involvement in the sequel. Again, this is by no means confirmed, but how great would it be to once again see OG Spock on the big screen next year?
Do you guys think Nimoy's legit when he says there's talk of his return? Anyone want to argue he shouldn't be in the sequel?
