[Movies] Chris Pine Still Wants J.J. Abrams to Direct Star Trek 3 Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.05.2013
He's considered kidnapping J.J....
Chris Pine says he loves the idea of J.J. Abrams directing Star Wars: Episode VII...as long as it doesn't pull him away from Star Trek. Pine, who plays Kirk in the new Trek films, told USA Today that he hopes Abrams can spare some time for that other space epic.
"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."
Is he excited for Star Wars 7 though? "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."
