Now this is an interesting development.
With Star Trek 3 losing two directors, we started to think the sci-fi sequel might never happen. But someone is going to breathe new life into the series.
Someone who's been there all along…
Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty the engineer, has been hired to co-write the next movie!
Seeing as he also co-wrote Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, we're taking this as a very good sign of things to come!
Star Trek 3 is set to come out July 8, 2016.
