I'm thinking this is EXCELLENT news. I LOVE Simon Pegg. I think he is really smart and his movies with Nick Frost are able to send up their respective genres while still having total respect for people's enjoyment of them. Plus it's time for a fun, tightly scripted ST movie.
But then again I was in the "Justin Lin might just work out" camp. I'm off for a 1/2 day of meetings, but feel free to get your GT nerd on until I get back. Keep it civil. Let's not end up in some Classic Groupthink/Reddit wormhole of comments.
