The third movie for the new Star Trek crew is currently gearing up for a 2016, but what happens next? The cast has all signed up for three movies, so will they return for a fourth or more? The new Sulu, John Cho addresses this issue in a new interview.
John Cho: Reuniting Cast For Fourth Star Trek Will Be ‘Tough’
In an interview with Crave promoting his new ABC sitcom Selfie, the subject of the future of Star Trek came up for actor John Cho. Here is the exchange:
Zachary Quinto has said the Star Trek cast all signed up for three movies, so the next one is the end of the contract. Since those characters go on forever, do you really expect this to be the last one for your team, or for you as Sulu?
The reason I hesitate is just wondering if we could get everyone. It seems to be an all or nothing proposition. I want to say, for me, sure, let’s do another. I enjoy that group. I enjoy what Star Trek films do in general and say in general. And I will say one of the pleasures of having been in Star Trek movies has been seeing what effect they have in society, like astronauts saying, “I kind of got into this line of work because my imagination was sparked from watching ‘Star Trek.’” That is very cool. What I’m trying to say is, I just stand by that product. Getting a whole cast together, that’s tough.
I understand, if one of the cast is unavailable, there’s no point having most of you and recasting one role.
I would have to think about that. I guess you’d have to see when you got there, but I would like to keep it all together.
Most Fans Agree
