William Shatner has responded to J.J. Abrams's comments regarding his axed cameo in the upcoming Star Trek film.
Abrams recently admitted that he had devised a way to bring Shatner back to the franchise as Captain James T. Kirk, but ditched the flashback scene because "it didn't quite feel right".
Shatner has since posted a video message to Abrams on YouTube, claiming that he hadn't been informed about the cameo role.
"Nobody ever came to me and said, 'we have a cameo,'" he stated. "The truth is, I wouldn't have wanted to do a cameo because you were having trouble fitting it in.
"Nobody ever asked me and I'm just sorry that I'm not in your wonderful movie. I would've loved to have been in it. If you make another one, maybe you could think of ways of bringing Captain Kirk back to life."
