Comedian Simon Pegg wants to write a script for the upcoming Star Wars television series, but only if he can bury the hatchet with director George Lucas.
The "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" star is a huge fan of the Star Wars films, but has criticised 1999 prequel movie "Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace" both publicly and on his BBC television series, "Spaced".
Now he has his heart set on working for the forthcoming TV series, but he fears his past comments may now stand in the way.
Pegg says, "I might try to wheedle my way back into the affections of Lucasfilm (Lucas' production company) and write an episode of the new live action Star Wars TV series."
Can Pegg make up for all his Jar Jar Binks bashing, or will he just have to be satisfied playing Scotty in the new "Star Trek" films? Only time will tell.
