Chris Pine Shares His Thoughts On J.J. Abrams Helming STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

The Star Trek Into Darkness actor shares his thoughts on J.J. Abrams helming Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney, but says he will be disappointed if the director doesn't return for a third instalment of Star Trek. And what are the chances of a cameo for Captain Kirk in Abrams' new franchise?


Talking to USA Today, Chris Pine has spoken out on the announcement that J.J. Abrams has signed up to helm Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney and Lucasfilm. However, while he's excited to see what the director does with that franchise, he's determined to bring him back for a third Star Trek...by any means necessary! "The only way I'll be disappointed is if he doesn't direct our third movie," he said. "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." However, the actor -who plays Captain James T. Kirk in the rebooted Star Trek franchise - was quick to wish his collaborator all the best and reiterated his excitement about what Abrams has in store for George Lucas' creations. "From my standpoint, J.J. is a science-fiction genius. 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." Oh, and what are the odds of a cameo for Kirk in Star Wars? "Now you're really playing with fire," he laughed. "I wouldn't say that even lightly."
