Simon Pegg is of course returning on board the USS Enterprise as Scotty, but not only will he be starring in the film, he's also be co-writing it.
Pegg has previously had writing credits on: Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, Run Fatboy Run and Paul. Pegg will be co-writing the script with Doug Jung, creator of the TNT series: Dark Blue.
It finally seems like [Star Trek 3](movie:817262) is back on track, Fast and Furious director Justin Lin is directing the film and now we have our two writers.
I have complete faith in Simon Pegg as a writer, I think Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End are very well written films, packed with wit and action.
The real task here is if Pegg can really deliver on the drama. The last two films did have their light hearted moments and were certainly funny but they were also very dramatic. I'm assuming co-writer Doug Jung will handle most of the dramatic writing and Pegg will deliver on the comedy and fun moments.
Are you guys happy with Simon Pegg co-writing "STAR TREK 3"?
