HOLLYWOOD – William Shatner signs on to direct Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan 2.
William Shatner is going to direct a sequel to his 1982 hit The Wrath of Khan. He spoke to the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY about the new film:
The first film was such a blast and everyone enjoyed it. I thought let’s do it again. These characters interest me. Captain Kirk interests me. I want to explore him. I want to see what happens next. And did Khan really die? I know Riccardo Montalban will be keen. I’ve called him a few times, but you know Riccardo. Always out and about.
How will the film fit in with the rest of the Star Trek universe?
I don’t understand the question.
Well, the different TV series, the JJ Abrams films.
I. Am. Not. familiar with. Those works.
What about the other films you did?
I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Star Trek The Wrath of Khan 2 will be released in 2018.
