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.”
