On Sunday night the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Film Awards were held in London. Alice Eve and Simon Pegg were in attendance.
Alice Eve spoke on the red carpet ahead of the awards to BAFTAonline and denied that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Khan.
Simon Pegg spoke to AbsoluteRadio on the red carpet and said “JJ is the perfect choice for [Star Wars], I just hope he doesn’t forget us Trekkies in the corner.” “He will do Star Trek 3”
This is the tweet Simon Pegg posted after the awards to clear up him saying JJ Abrams would direct Star Trek 3.
Just to be clear, contrary to reports in the press, I have no idea whether or not JJ will helm Star Trek 3.
