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".

It seems like Shatner is referring to his not being cast in the Star Trek reboot that came out in 2009 which had Chris Pine playing a young James T. Kirk. Shatner is internationally known for playing Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series which debuted in 1966 and ran for six seasons. Shatner also starred in seven Star Trek feature films which became a financial success.

Hopefully Abrams and Shatner have a sit down and hash out their problems over sushi. Until then the newest installment in the Star Trek series Star Trek Into Darkness will hit theaters May 17.
