William Shatner might be in the next Star Trek movie

It's been 20 years since William Shatner had his swan song as Star Trek's Captain Kirk — but according to a new report, the actor might boldly go back to a role he's played many, many times before.

Badass Digest reports that the script for the next movie in the rebooted Star Trek franchise calls for Shatner to reprise his role as Kirk in a scene that would pair him with Leonard Nimoy's Spock. While Shatner has not yet agreed to take the role, his appearance is reportedly "plot-driven and integral" — so let's hope the screenwriters haven't written themselves into a no-win scenario.
