This just in! William Shatner may be in Star Trek XI after all! According to /Film Star Trek co-writer Roberto Orci has stated:

“Still, it could happen,” Orci admitted after explaining to SciFi that the problem is two fold: “One, from our point of view, we are still hoping to find a way. Secondly, one of the difficulties that was brought up and discussed with Shatner when we all met him and pitched him ideas is that Trek fans are sticklers for their canon. [And,] unfortunately, Shatner’s Captain Kirk was killed in Star Trek VII [1994’s Generations].”

At this stage, this story has not only been beaten to death, it’s been beaten, kicked, stabbed, dissected, and hung, drawn and quartered to death. Shatner’s in it. He’s not in it. He’s furious about it. He doesn’t want to be in it. At this stage, I truly the drawn out hype over whether Captain James T Kirk will in fact show up in his older (nearly said elderly, better not put it quite that way!) has reached critical mass and will soon fizzle out. Either that or the decision will be made and we can put this story to bed. Of course, with the script still frozen due to the WGA strike, we won’t get the final decision on whether Shatner will be written into it for a long time to come. “Yay”.
