George Takei would consider returning to ‘Star Trek’.
The 82-year-old star – who starred in the 1960s television series ‘Star Trek: The Original Series’ as Hikaru Sulu – would be up for a role in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Star Trek’ film if the script was right.
He told The Blast: "It depends on the script. He’s a great filmmaker. Well, it all depends. He is a very individualistic filmmaker, so he will decide how he envisions it, who he is gonna cast."
Meanwhile, William Shatner – who played James T. Kirk in the original 1960s television show – would love to be part of a Quentin Tarantino-directed ‘Star Trek’ movie.
He said: "Quentin Tarantino said something in the paper that somebody said to me, that he loved me. [looks into camera] And Quentin, I love you. If you’re going to do Star Trek 50 years later, a few pounds heavier, come on. Not a problem! Well, I’d like to do it. Whether I’d be up for it, I don’t know."
And Tarantino previously confessed if he commits to directing ‘Star Trek’ then it will be his final film.
He said: "I guess I do have a loophole, [if] the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], ‘Uh, I guess ‘Star Trek’ doesn’t count. I can do ‘Star Trek’ … but naturally I would end on an original. But the idea of doing 10 isn’t to come up with a loophole. I actually think if I was going to do ‘Star Trek’ I should commit to it. It’s my last movie. There should be nothing left-handed about it. I don’t know if I’m going to do that, but that might happen."
