Back here in the states Star Trek sequel co-writer/producer Damon Lindelof replied to the actor via Twitter.
Orci: steady as she goes + Greenwood hint?
Speaking of online musings from the Star Trek team. Lindelof’s writing and producing cohort Roberto Orci dropped by the TrekMovie.com comments section over the last couple of days. He responded to one commenter asking about progress on the film, promising all is moving forward in the sequel:
And today when another TrekMovie commenter asked if Orci had been listening to the fans who wanted to see more of Bruce Greenwood’s Pike, he gave an affirmative.
Of course Orci could just be saying he was listening, but not actually confirming that Greenwood has made it into the film. For his part, Greenwood has made no secret that he wants to come back and has even proclaimed that Pike is "essential."
Bruce Greenwood in "Star Trek" – is he back for the sequel?
