Simon Pegg Writing New Draft for Star Trek 3

By on January 23, 2015

SimonPegg Ever since Roberto Orci dropped out of writing the third “Star Trek” film, the film’s script future has been left in the unknown ether of Hollywood. Last week the studio finally hired a replacement writer by way of “Star Trek” star Simon Pegg.

Pegg stars in the new franchise as Scotty but will now take on a new role as he will begin developing the script for Paramount Pictures. He will work on the script alongside co-writer Doug Jung (Dark BlueBanshee)

This isn’t the first foray into writing for Pegg. He has previously scripted Shaun of the DeadHot Fuzz and The World’s Endwith writer/director buddy Edgar Wright. However, this is the first drama film he will be working on in the writing capacity.

The third Star Trek is set to hit theaters on July 8, 2016. The official title for the film hasn’t been announced yet.
