Well, that sure didn’t take long.
No sooner did a rumor surface of William Shatner’s involvement in Star Trek 3 than director/co-writer Roberto Orci and the actor himself stepped forward to seemingly shoot it down.
Orci commented on TrekMovie’s story, quoting Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in the process: “love no win scenarios. In theoy, [sic] damned either way.” After a number of other commenters misread the quote as confirmation, Orci returned to the thread to clarify, stating:
“Not in my interest to confirm or deny anything because it limits my options while maintaining my integrity as a truth teller.
The movie is not the movie till it is in the theater. Until then, everything is a rumor.”
Shatner, meanwhile, quelled the rumor with a tweet.
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.
