Star Trek veteran actor William Shatner is not too happy with J.J. Abrams. When news broke last month that Abrams will be directing the newest Star Wars film, fans and moviegoers rejoiced but Shatner has a different reaction.

The 81-year-old actor stated during an interview with Movie Fanatic, "He's being a pig. 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".

According to, Shatner also stated in his interview with Movie Fanatic, "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 on two of the largest franchises ... and not employing me in either one of them I think is just foolhardy".
