Stewart: Too Old For More Trek?

Patrick Stewart told the WENN Web site that Paramount may want him to reprise his Star Trek role of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, but that he may be too old should a new Next Generation movie get off the ground.

"Weighty people in Hollywood have come up with a very interesting proposition," Stewart, 65, told the site. "But they told me it was still two, three or four years down the road, by which time I would only be able to sit in the captain's chair and not have the energy to get out of it!"

Officially, Paramount has said nothing about any future Trek films or TV projects, though several script ideas are rumored to be making the rounds.
