Chris Pine is hoping for a little more character development in the next Star Trek movie, including romance.
In a recent interview, Pine spoke about the sequel, and admitted that he didn’t know when shooting would begin. “I don’t know,” he said, when asked. “I haven’t heard. I’m always the last person to find out. It’s sometime next year I know. I don’t know if it’s January.”
But one thing Pine did know was what he wanted for Captain Kirk in the next movie. And look out, Spock, he’s after your woman! “I want at least one shot at Ms. Saldana,” he said. “I mean please, please God have mercy. Maybe her in her little Avatar outfit.”
Pine also would like fans to see the funny side of Kirk. “Kirk’s got a great sense of humor and I would love to see that explored more,” he said.
Star Trek XII will open June 29, 2012.
