Star Trek 4
Zachary Quinto revealed to THR he still hasn’t seen a script for Star Trek 4 and doubts it will film this year.
I don’t know that we will do it this year. I don’t know when it will happen. And I always maintain that I would love to do it. But until I get something concrete — ‘We’re shooting this day, here’s your script, get ready’ — I’m in a wait and see pattern. I’m not really attached to it in any way until I have much more definitive certainty that it’s actually happening.

There’s a certain show coming soon set right around the time I may have considered to be very active. Whether or not you will see my physical body, I cannot comment on. But you will certainly feel my presence.
