Star Trek 3 beams up Simon Pegg as co-writer
Sorry to interrupt the return of Arrow, but we have some late breaking news tonight. Simon Pegg has been set to co-write STAR TREK 3! The Justin Lin directed movie needed its share of good news after Roberto Orci who was set to helm the movie exited. Pegg starred in both of the STAR TREK films from J.J. Abrams’s and is sure to be back again as Scotty a third time, now with the added responsibility of making us forget STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS ever happened. His writing partner on this one is Doug Jung (Dark Blue, Banshee).
Pegg has some pretty great work on his writing resume including the Edgar Wright-directed Cornetto trilogy consisting of SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ and THE WORLD’S END. He also co-wrote the underrated gem RUN FAT BOY RUN.
STAR TREK 3 hits theaters on July 8, 2016.
