In an interview promoting his latest movie, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which released last month, Star Trek XI‘s Simon Pegg spoke briefly about Star Trek 2.
“It’s all a ‘go.’ I’m preparing to fly out to L.A. in the new year and start working on Star Trek,” he said. “I can’t wait to get back to it. I do love Scotty and it’s so much fun playing him.”
Although Pegg has become more high profile after his parts in both the Star Trek and Mission Impossible movies, don’t expect him to change much. “I don’t involve myself in a celebrity lifestyle,” he said. “I’m not famous for being me, which is so much nicer than being famous for no reason other than that you’re a celebrity. It’s the roles that make me sort of interesting.”
Filming begins on Star Trek 2 this month.
