Pine On Abrams And Star Wars


Chris Pine gave his opinion recently regarding the news that J.J. Abrams will be directing the next Star Wars movie.

As expected, the actor was happy for Abrams, but he had a warning for Abrams. “From my standpoint, J.J. is a science-fiction genius,” said Pine. “To have him over in the Star Wars camp is going to be a great thing. I’m sure it’s going to be a great film.”

But Pine was not so happy about the possibility of Abrams not directing the third Star Trek film. “The only way I’ll be disappointed is if he doesn’t direct our third movie,” said Pine. “I think if that turns out to be the case we’ll have to kidnap him and hold him hostage until he agrees to do a third.”

As to the rumor that Pine as Kirk might appear in the next Star Wars movie? “Now you’re really playing with fire,” said Pine. “I wouldn’t even say that lightly.”

    Oh lord… the fan boys are going to obsess over this interview.

    Kidnap him alright, but keep him hostage until he agrees NOT to make the third movie and until he promises to stay away from Star Trek forever. 🙂

    The picture of JJ Abrams used for all these articles about him is hardly flattering or pleasant to look at. Can’t we find something better?

  • I think trekfan’s solution would save us from having to look at too many more of these unflattering/unpleasant photos.

    “To all the haters of J.J. Abrams and George Lucas. Show us your movies that sold out box offices and grossed billions of dollars. Then I will show you a small group of amateur fascist critics that hate your movies too. I think it’s just popular to hate on Hollywood movies out of envy.”

    Get the message, people? It’s their movies, and they can do whatever the fuck they want to do with them! Give it a fucking rest! Like the Khan issue, it’s a dead horse that has been beaten.

    Honestly, purists and fanboys have a very bad habit of ruining something really cool. Look at Star Trek Continues and you will see what I mean about purists and fanboys!

    Sad, but true. Their bullshit is going to ruin Star Trek and Star Wars.
