Jennifer Morrison had a brief but memorable appearance in J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie playing Winona Kirk, mother of James T. Kirk, and the actress is talking again about the next Star Trek movie.
Development on Star Trek 4 has been heating up lately following director S.J. Clarkson being tapped in April as director for the follow-up to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond. And with Chris Hemsworth set to return to the role of George Kirk, it isn’t unreasonable to wonder if his on-screen wife will join him.
When asked at Montreal Comiccon over the weekend if she was interested in joining Hemsworth for Star Trek 4, the actress made her enthusiasm for the possibility clear:
I would love that! I don’t have any idea what they are doing. I have not heard from anyone. So, I don’t know where they are in the process. I don’t even know if they have a script. I have no idea where they are at with all of it. But, I loved being a part of that franchise. I loved playing Winona Kirk. I feel super honored to have played Winona Kirk. And any way to be possibly involved, I would of course love to be.
This isn’t the first time Morrison has talked Trek recently. In May the actress made news by hinting that Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk actually survived his heroic sacrifice in the 2009 Star Trek film. After this was seen as a possible Star Trek 4 clue, Morrison clarified that it was just speculation.
At Montreal Comiccon, she made it clear she is a Star Trek fan and just as eager for news as the rest of us:
I am a fan of the franchise as much as I am a tiny part of it. So, as a fan, I am just excited to see what they come up with and what that story is. If they let me be a part of it, that would be awesome, but if not, I am still excited to see it.
