J.J. Abrams Clarifies Confusion Over Shatner Snub
In case you aren’t aware of the ongoing Abrams/Shatner war of words, here’s your opportunity to get caught up:
J.J. Abrams makes plans to direct/produce new Star Trek movie. William becomes upset about not being involved. J.J. claims they tried to include the original Captain Kirk. Shatner denies ever receiving an offer.
So now here we are with Round 4. In this interview with MTV, Abrams says the Boston Legal star never received an offer because they never tried to make him one. J.J. explains (once and for all?) that the writers wanted to include him in the film, they just couldn’t see a feasible way to make the script work.
