It has emerged that rumours about the early years of captain James T. Kirk and Spock are confirmed. Spock's and Kirks academy years will be explored by J.J. Abrams. The Enterprises 1701(Constitution Class) Legendary Captain is quoted as saying to Sci Fi Wire " Yes, we know the story is based on young Kirk"

"and they told me they would like me to be part of their film, but they have yet to write the role"
So the wheels are in motion and J.J. Abrams being a Star Trek fan himself, will doubtless waste no time in finding out, where to place William Shatner's role in the movie along with Spock who incidentally is still alive on Vulcan. So no problem there.
"Its a very complex, technical problem of how to write the character in, and I'm not sure how they will solve it" admits W. Shatner to Sci Fi Wire.
Speaking as a Star Trek fan myself, I have every confidence they will.
Live Long and Prosper Trekkers!
