In addition to taking on the role of Scotty in Star Trek 3, Simon Pegg will also have a hand in shaping the script for the sequel.
Pegg will be co-writing along with Doug Jung, creator of TNT’s Dark Blue series.
Pegg is not unfamiliar with writing, having written for other movies such as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End and Paul.
Jung has written for Bad Robot and Paramount before, which is how he came to their attention.
