Pegg: Sequel in 18 Months?

Simon Pegg, while promoting Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinsaurs, indicated to Zoo Magazine (not safe for work) that he thinks a sequel to Star Trek could be ready as soon as 18 months from now.
I know the writers are busy thinking about it. I don’t really know anything about the story, or if I’m in a bigger role, but I’d imagine we’ll be back this time next year. That’s not official, but I reckon it’s probably about 18 months away from being in the cinema.
That time table would put a release around Christmas 2010. Considering the success the movie had in May, more than likely the movie would be set for a May 2011 release. Besides, even if Trek writers Orci and Kurtzman do manage to get a final approved script done by the end of the year it leaves a very short schedule to big budget film together. The problem wouldn’t be the shoot itself; the problem would be having enough time to get the CGI elements completed. It's doable, just difficult. A summer release would provide plenty of breathing room.

In additional, Simon Pegg spoke with MoviesOnline about Star Trek fans which you can find here.
