Pegg: Shatner In Star Trek 3?



In a recent interview while doing press for his latest film, Man Up, Simon Pegg answered a few questions about Star Trek 3.

The questions concerned the title of the movie, and William Shatner‘s appearance in Star Trek 3.

Asked directly about the title, which is said to be Star Trek Beyond, Pegg said, “I don’t know if it’s the title or not at the moment. That’s sort of playful.”

Pegg also spoke about Shatner, and the potential to see Captain Kirk in Star Trek 3. “William Shatner is an amazing actor and has such an incredible body of work which transcends just his time as Captain Kirk,” said Pegg.

“It’s always all about whether the story is right. There’s no point ‘crowbarring’ these things in as a gimmick because that does the story and the film a disservice.

“But I have no doubt in my mind that he could play Captain Kirk until the day he decides to go off into the final frontier.”
