William Shatner Calls J.J. Abrams "a Pig" for Hogging Both Star Trek a



"We already know William Shatner thinks Star Trek is better than Star Wars, but how does he feel about J.J. Abrams going from directing two Trek flicks to helming the next adventure in a galaxy far, far away?
"He's being a pig," the original Captain Kirk told Movie Fanatic. "He's collecting the two franchises and holding them close to his vest. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk that we have, but he's gone too far this time."

While that may sound a bit harsh, we're guessing his tongue was planted firmly in his cheek when he said it. At least, we hope so!
Shatner added, "I think of him as a buddy of mine. I've taken him out for sushi. I think it's time for J.J. and I to have another sushi and let me put him straight about two of the largest franchises—and not employing me in either one of them is just foolhardy."
Meanwhile, Star Trek: Into Darkness, sans Shatner, opens in theaters on May 17."
