Posted by January 22, 2015 Comment

SimonPeggStar Trek 3 is getting back on course after the exit of Robert Orci as writer/director. Justin Lin (Fast And The Furious) was brought on to direct and now word is that Simon Pegg is being asked to co-write the script with Dark Blue creator Doug Jung.

Pegg’s previous writing credits include the Edgar Wright directed Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End). Pegg will also reprise his role as Montgomery “Scotty” Scott… who may just get a bit more screen time in this film now.
