[Movies] William Shatner Supports J.J. Abrams Directing Both Star Trek and Star Wars Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 10.24.2013
He's a big Abrams fan...
William Shatner is not one of those Trekkies who has any enmity toward the Star Wars franchise. TMZ caught up with Shatner in Los Angeles and asked him about fans who are pissed that Abrams has jumped franchises, directing Star Wars: Episode VII while he's still producing (but not necessarily directing) Star Trek III.
When asked if he had a problem with it, Shatner said he is a huge Abrams fan and can't wait to see the films, noting that Abrams directing Episode VII is "wonderful."
