Things just got interesting on the Star Trek 3 front…
Scotty himself, Simon Pegg, is being touted as coming on board (arf) as co-writer on the Trek sequel according to Trek News.
The rumor is that he will co-write with Doug Jung who created TNT series Dark Blue.
Pegg is no stranger to writing nerdy movies with Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End remaining constant favourites here at FTN.
With Pegg scripting and Justin Linn directing, Star Trek 3 has just become a very exciting prospect indeed.
Star Trek 3 is beaming down (sorry) on July 8th, 2016.
Pegg’s official Twitter account just announced:
It’s true! Simon is currently working on the screenplay for the third Star Trek film with Dark Blue writer, Doug Jung. – HC
