Shatner Dismisses Feud Over Star Trek Movie

Former CAPTAIN KIRK star WILLIAM SHATNER has dismissed rumours of a feud with the cast of the new STAR TREK movie, insisting there's no bad blood.
The veteran star was upset when director J.J. Abrams refused to include him in the new movie, choosing instead to recast the roles made famous by Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley.
But Shatner is adamant any tension was a joke, and wishes his successor as Kirk - actor Chris Pine - the best of luck.
The actor tells U.S. TV show Extra, ""I wish them all the best. I certainly hope it's a great success."
And he has a special message for Pine: "Chris, good luck... and hold your breath. It's going to be a whirlwind."
Shatner insists he hasn't ruled out one day returning to the franchise: "If the movie is successful and they make another one, never say never as James Bond... I loved 'Star Trek' in all its many phases. I dearly would love to be a part of it."
