Abrams Talks Shatner In Trek

J.J. Abrams has revealed that they had a flashback scene all set for William Shatner to make a cameo in for the upcoming “Star Trek” film but “the truth is, it didn’t quite feel right” he tells AMC TV.

Abrams says another issue was that Shatner was “very vocal that he didn’t want to do a cameo. We tried desperately to put him in the movie, but he was making it very clear that he wanted the movie to focus on him significantly, which, frankly, he deserves”.

He adds that “The truth is, the story that we were telling required a certain adherence to the Trek canon and consistency of storytelling.”
