Just when you thought it was safe…there is even more Trek talk from Simon Pegg’s Run Fatboy Run publicity tour. Believe it or not there have been many interviews we haven’t reported on due to repetition, but there are a couple of new interesting ones. First there is a video clip from MTV with Star Trek’s new Scotty talking about how everyone is ‘a fan.’ Plus Pegg talks to Moviehole about Comic-con.

Pegg talks about future promotion and Comic-Con
While talking to Moviehole about his reverence for Trek past, Pegg also revealed a bit about what we can expect for future promotion of the film.
In his interview I went to the studios the other day to do my EPK interviews and we went off to a corner of the Paramount lot to do them, and was told halfway through the shoot, and the interview, that we were actually on the sound stage where the original show Enterprise had stood. That was amazing and also to find myself in familiar environments on the new film was always enormously exciting, to sort of look around, and go ‘How did I get here?’ It’s incredible.
…and ‘EPK’ an Electronic Press Kit, which are given out to the media closer to release to allow people to create their own interviews…often used for local TV stations. Pegg also tells Moviehole he plans to go to this summer’s Comic-Con for the Star Trek panel. No word yet on what other cast members will be there, but at last summer’s Comic-Con director JJ Abrams promised ‘much more next year.’ However, it is likely going to be not the same as it would have been if the film were still a Christmas release.
Like all the actors, Pegg is signed on for options for possible sequels, and he is optimistic we will see it.
I’m sure it will happen, because I think this film’s going to be massive, but the basic ritual is that you sign on folks for that.
