The original series’ William Shatner is full of praise for Star Trek into Darkness‘ J.J. Abrams.
In a radio interview, Shatner complimented Abrams’ movie-making abilities and expressed confidence in Abrams’ other sci-fi project, Star Wars Episode 7.
“J.J. is a terrific director, and he gives you a great ride,” said Shatner. “He knows how to make the movie large with the special effects and everything. And that’s going to be wonderful.”
“It’s going to be wonderful for both franchises. He certainly has enlivened Star Trek. I’m looking forward to seeing what he’s going to do because he’s going to do something different, that’s for sure.”
“There are very few people who can make those kinds of movies, to have the sensibility. He’s got a lot of wonderful people around him. He’ll make a fabulous movie.”
