JJ-Abrams-Collider-CarpetIn an interview with Collider at the Visual Effects Society Awards, JJ Abrams who is producing Star Trek 3, was asked how the development came about for Simon Pegg to be co-writing the film.

“[Pegg] and I had talked quite a bit about story, he had a lot of wonderful ideas. It just sort of felt obvious that he would be a wonderful person to work on the story and help craft the story, so he’s working on it.”

Star Trek 3 is on course to hit cinemas on July 8, 2016
