Simon Pegg has been tasked with the job of writing the screen play for Star Trek III....well the third in the reboot. I'm not sure what to make of this. Shaun of the Undead is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Some of his other films are hit or miss for me. But he did a piece some years ago called Space, and that was pretty good. Plunged us all into the geek world.
So we know he can make movies. We know he can make funny movies and write a decent script.
So who knows. Maybe he'll jetison the time travel motif and get us back to Exploring Space, Where No Man has Gone Before.
