Simon Pegg has achieved a new status among the moviemakers of Star Trek 3. According to Deadline, the performer of the role of Scotty will become the new writer for the continuation of the popular series.
It's worth noting that Pegg is no stranger to this business: he previously co-wrote several movie projects, including "Zombie Called Sean", "Paul: The Secret Material" and "Armageddian".
The cast of the project has not been officially announced at the time of this writing, but it is expected that Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Soldana, Karl Urban, John Cho will also star in the third episode. Justin Lin has been appointed director of the movie.
The movie will be released on July 8, 2016, the year of the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise. The first season of the TV series of the same name aired from 1966 to 1969.
A previous episode titled "Star Trek: Retribution" was released in 2013. Its production budget was $ 190 million, and the world box office was quite modest - $ 467 million. This allowed the project to pay off, but the profits of its creators left much to be desired. The first two movies were directed by JJ Abrams.
