This week we reported that director JJ Abrams has literally erected a wall around location shooting on the Star Trek sequel. And in the latest comment from Simon Pegg (aka the new Scotty) shows that this quest to maintain the film experience has been "installed" into the actors as well. See Pegg’s latest comment below and sound off in our new poll on Star Trek’s secrecy.
Pegg remains mum about Star Trek plot
While talking to Total Film about his upcoming thriller A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, the mag tried to get something out of him on the Star Trek sequel currently in production. Here is all Simon had to offer:
"It’s all about space….It’s about the final frontier. And the one before it. I know it’s boring, but one thing JJ installed in all of us is the importance of giving the audience everything they can get from the experience itself."
Apparently Pegg is so enamored with JJ’s total secrecy approach, that he plans to apply it to the final film in his "Three Flavors of Cornetto" trilogy. The follow up to Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz titled The World’s End is set to shoot later this year, but Pegg says that we shouldn’t expect leaks from that set either, noting:
“When we do World’s End we’re not going to do blogs from the set, which we did with Hot Fuzz and Paul, because we want to maintain some mystique."
Pegg’s interview for A Fantastic Fear Of Everything (opening on 8 June 2012) will appear in a future issue of Total Film.
By the way, Pegg will be appearing on Conan on Tuesday.
