Production wraps on Star Trek Beyond, plus new set pics and video
Yesterday Simon Pegg announced on his Twitter that filming has wrapped on STAR TREK BEYOND. The third nu-Star Trek flick entered production in June with THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS 3-6's Justin Lin behind the camera, taking over for J.J. Abrams, who directed the two previous movies. Pegg co-wrote the script with CONFIDENCE scribe and Dark Blue creator Doug Jung, and although story details have been scarce, we do know the film will follow the USS Enterprise crew on their five-year mission, with Idris Elba playing the villain.
