Simon Pegg hopes J J Abrams doesn’t forget ‘Trekkies’
Simon Pegg hopes J J Abrams doesn’t forget about “Trekkies” fans while he directs ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’.
The British actor plays Scotty in the filmmaker’s upcoming feature ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ and while he thinks Abrams is the “perfect choice” to helm the rival franchise’s next film, Simon prays he won’t forget about his original fan base.
When asked by Absolute Radio whether he thinks both clans of fans will unite because of J J’s move, Simon replied: “Yeah, I guess so. I mean, I don’t know how separate they’ve always been. I mean, it tends to be a bit of both.
“There are some people like us that just kind of like stick to one thing and don’t want to do the other, but you know, J J is the perfect choice for that job and I just hope he doesn’t forget us Trekkies in the corner.” BANG!
