Chris PineStar Trek 3 has already had a bumpy road and the next installment of the revamped franchise hasn’t even shot a single frame yet. Roberto Orci was supposed to make his directorial debut on the film, something that incensed a fair number of fans, but he was ousted after disagreements with Paramount Pictures over the direction of the film, and replaced by the Fast & Furious Justin Lin, another decision many have questioned. Orci also left a void in the writing department as well, which has since been filled by Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the new films. We adore Pegg, but while it remains to be seen whether or not this is a good fit, at least one of his costars has given him a resounding vote of confidence.

Chris Pine, who, of course, plays the new version of Captain James T. Kirk, is in Park City, Utah for the Sundance premiere of his post-apocalyptic ride Z for Zachariah. When MTV caught up with him, they asked what he though of the Pegg hire.
