The new Star Trek movie is going to be funny, apparently: Deadline is reporting that Simon Pegg has signed on to co-write the script for the upcoming Star Trek 3, alongside Dark Blue's Robert Jung. Pegg is still playing Scottie, who will, presumably, receive all the movie's funny lines, heartfelt monologues, and love scenes. The director is Justin Lin, who shot the paintball episode of Community (in addition to many, many other things), which means that this will be the first Star Trek movie entirely made up of comedic references to other Star Trek movies.
