Simon Pegg, Star Trek’s new Scotty, will be joining his fellow new crewmates on board the USS Enterprise when the sequel starts shooting next month. And the actor is now getting ready for the role, revealing some of his prep work. Details below.
Pegg prepping for Star Trek sequel
As first reported here at TrekMovie.com, the Star Trek sequel production kicks off on January 15th. The whole team are getting ready for the big moment, including the actors. That includes the new Scotty Simon Pegg who in the last couple days has been tweeting some of his prep. Yesterday Pegg sent out a tweet saying that he is running to get into "Starfleet" shape.
And today Pegg tweeted that he has been running his own Star Trek movie marathon to get his mind into Starfleet shape as well.
Pegg is of course referring to the famous Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home scene, when the original Scotty (James Doohan) is back in time in the 1980s trying to use an Apple Macintosh.
Hopefully Simon (and other Star Trek stars on Twitter) will keep us up to date on their progress before and during production. However, don’t expect too much as the infamous JJ Abrams cone of silence is likely to be implemented to control any spoilers.
