While in a interview with Radio Times via The Guardian Simon Pegg dropped some extremely interesting hints on the new Star Trek sequel he’s co-writing.

Pegg talked about taking over the Star Trek Beyond script and what the executives at Paramount want out of the new movie. 

Basically Pegg said the original script was too much like Star Trek.

"They had a script for Star Trek that wasn’t really working for them. I think the studio was worried that it might have been a little too Star Trek-y." Pegg told.

“Avengers Assemble, which is a pretty nerdy, comic-book, supposedly niche thing, made $1.5bn. Star Trek: Into Darkness made half a billion, which is still brilliant. But it means that, according to the studio, there’s still $1bn worth of box office that don’t go and see Star Trek. And they want to know why.”

Pegg took over writing duties from Roberto Orci. And that’s not a bad thing, but it sounds like Orci’s original draft wasn’t as inviting as the studio wanted to the every day moviegoer, maybe?

So what do you think of Pegg’s comments? Let us know in the comments below.
