William Shatner On J.J. Abrams Directing STAR WARS EPISODE VII: "He's Being A Pig"

While the responses to Star Trek Into Darkness' J.J. Abrams directing the next Star Wars movie have been mostly positive, former Trek star William Shatner is seemingly not a fan of the idea.



When it was announced last month that J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII after relaunching the Star Trek franchise, reactions were mostly positive. However, the one major concern shared by many was the fact that the same director will be handling the two biggest sci-fi franchises of all time at once. In an interview with Movie Fanatic while promoting his new movie Escape From Planet Earth, legendary actor William Shatner - best known for playing James Kirk in the original Star Trek universe - shares his rather to-the-point opinion of the big news. "He's being a pig. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk we have. But, he's gone too far this time." Of course, it's possible that he's being sarcastic here, but what do you think of his comments?

Disney/Lucasfilm's Star Wars: Episode VII is targeting a 2015 release, despite Abrams reportedly not committing to that date. Michael Ardnt (Toy Story 3) is working on the script.
