Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright hope to write script before STAR TREK 2

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been doing interviews lately for the upcoming release of Paul on Blu-ray and DVD on August 9th. One of their recent interviews was with AICN, and they were asked about the long awaited conclusion to the "Three Flavors Cornetto" trilogy (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz being the first two), titled The Worlds End

Mr. Beaks form AICN asked if there was an increase in pressure to please the fans. Here is his response:

Yeah, and I hope we sort of confound it in a way. I wouldn’t want to become predictable or be the guys who do that. The next thing that we do will hopefully be… you know, in writing our new thing, Edgar and me have been very determined – that we’re going to start in earnest very, very soon – to not just do the same thing again, to do something very different. Not to the point of alienating people who want something, but just give people something new and something different. You can’t just stay where you are forever. You have to mutate to survive, and I think we’re going to make sure that we do that. I’d hate to become stale and predictable. People are already making films that are kind of like the sort of thing we might do. I want to stay a little bit ahead of the curve at least.

Then he followed up by asking when this could happen. Good news for fans is that the film is still in the works, and could be arriving sooner than later. 

We already started the conception process, so it’s just a question of when we can get together. I’m just about to start shooting a movie here in the UK, so maybe between that and STAR TREK we might get a chance to bang out a first draft if we’re lucky.

Star Trek 2 will likely be into production by early next year at the latest As we've reported, J.J. Abrams is going to focus on working on the script now that Super 8 is done. What are your thoughts on this news?
