Star Trek actor, Simon Pegg revealed that he doesn’t really know what is happening with Star Trek 4 during a recent interview with Collider.
We still don’t really know what is going on with Star Trek 4, and it sounds like Simon Pegg is just as much in the dark as we are.
It was revealed a while back that Noah Hawley was going to be writing and directing the next film.
However, there were then rumours that his film wouldn’t feature the other movies’ cast.
So, what’s happening? It seems as though nobody really has a clue, including the movie’s actors.
Simon Pegg doesn’t know what’s happening with Star Trek 4
Here’s what Pegg told Collider during the interview about the current situation with Star Trek 4:
We’re all still in contact, we were emailing with each other the other day, just checking in, ‘how are we,’ and stuff. But it’s not like any of us have been banging on the door at Paramount saying, ‘Hey, when are we doing this?’ If they say, ‘We’d like to do another movie,’ I’m sure we’ll all jump at the chance. I miss those guys, and I love making those films. But I just don’t know. Noah Hawley’s project has been mentioned, and maybe that will happen. I don’t know anything about that. So yeah, I’m as in the dark as everyone else, I’m in the same boat as you guys.
Pegg also spoke of how losing Anton Yelchin was a huge blow to everyone working on the recent Star Trek movies.
One thing I did mention when I spoke about it recently is that for us, losing Anton Yelchin the way we did was a real blow. And I think it slightly took the wind out of our sails in terms of our enthusiasm to do another one, just because we’re now missing one of our family. He would be conspicuous by his absence.
