Zachary Quinto is ready to begin work on Star Trek 4, but so far, other than the knowledge that there will be a fourth film, he has no information on the details or when work will begin.
“I’m expecting that to be true, but it’s a process,” he said. “It’s always this way. It’s like, ‘Yes, we’re going to do it!’ But then there are many steps in that process – writing a script being primary among them – and I know that’s what they’re working on now. I think we’re all really excited to go back and we’ll do that whenever the phone rings and it’s J.J. on the other end. But yeah, it is a process. There [are] years between the first few movies – I think four years between the first two and three between the second and the third. So we are kind of on track. It was two years ago we shot the last one and it came out last year so I feel we are still in the strike zone.”
Addressing rumors that Sonequa Martin-Green‘s character might be part-Vulcan, Quinto said, “Ooh, alright. Well then maybe I’ll have to dip on for a little visit.”
But in reality, don’t expect a cameo from him in Star Trek: Discovery. “I don’t know, probably not,” he said. “I don’t think so. It is such a unique experience and such a unique character and I feel like I wouldn’t know how to…I don’t know. Who knows? But I am excited to see it. I am happy that they are doing it and it is an incredible universe. There is an endless combination of possibilities of stories and characters. I don’t feel like they will need me. They will be able to create an opulent world of much drama on their own.”
