According to Deadline, not only will Simon Pegg reprise the role of Montgomery “Scotty” Scott in the third of Paramount’s Star Trek reboot flicks, but he’s also on board as one of the writers. We might just see a bigger role for the Enterprise’s chief engineer this time…

After writing with regular co-star Nick Frost on the likes of Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, Simon Pegg will now work on the script for the new Star Trek movie. Deadline report that he’ll co-write it with with Doug Jung (who also wrote a film called Diamond for Bad Robot and Paramount), creator of the TNT series Dark Blue. The Trek threequel lost its original director when Roberto Orci left the project, but Fast Furious’ Justin Lin recently stepped in as a replacement. Pegg has played Scotty in both previous films, and not surprisingly, he’s set to reprise the role for this third Trek through space. Does this mean Pegg will give himself an expanded role? Probably!
