Simon Pegg has revealed Star Trek 2 could begin shooting as soon as this Christmas.
The 40-year-old British actor plays Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in the sci-fi adventure alongside Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana. The film is directed by JJ Abramas and roughly scheduled for release in 2012.
Simon revealed: "We all talk to each other, I speak to JJ quite a lot and he's very tight lipped - he doesn't even say waht's going to happen in Lost, he really can keep a secret that guy!"
He added: "I keep saying when are we doing it, when are we doing it and he says 'Soon, soon.' So I reckon towards the end of the year.
"It might be a similar time to when we did the last one, so over Christmas kind of thing."
Asked what he was hoping might happen to Scotty in the new movie, Simon joked he would like him to have sex with an attractive green alien.
