Spock actor Zachary Quinto has said that the cast of reboot Star Trek films would all happily return to the franchise for a fourth film.
Back in 2009, J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures rebooted the iconic franchise in a film simply titled Star Trek. The film was a critical and financial success as was its 2013 sequel, Star Trek: Into Darkness but both drew ire from longtime fans thanks to its deviation from the original series in terms of content and tone. The last film in the film franchise, Star Trek Beyond was a critical success but unfortunately failed to meet Paramount’s box office expectations.
Following the performance of Star Trek Beyond, Paramount had to reconsider just how it was wanted to approach the franchise. A fourth film was in development with the rebooted cast but the salaries of the main cast members were reported to high and kept the project from going through. Since then, another Star Trek project featuring Quenten Tarintino as the director was put into development alongside one from Legion creator Noah Hawley that the company put the breaks on earlier this year. The latter film would have featured an entirely new cast but the original reboot cast is still willing to play the classic characters.
While speaking to The Talk, Spock actor Zackary Quinto says that he and the rest of the cast would be willing to reprise their roles:
“Absolutely. We talk about it all the time as the crew of the Enterprise, we’re all incredibly close friends in real life and I think all of us would welcome the opportunity to go back and keep telling those stories. Seems like a bit of a saturated market at this point, so I’m not sure what the plans are for the feature film versions of the franchise, but we’re all here if they want to beam us up.”
