Morning Roundup: Chris Pine Might Kidnap J.J. Abrams

In a recent USA Today article Chris Pine has mentioned he’d be “disappointed” if the Star Wars gig for J.J. Abrams meant Star Trek 3 would be directed by someone else. He also went on to say “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.” And we think the above piece of fan art couldn’t convey Chris Pine’s feeling better.
