Star Trek Into Darkness actor Simon Pegg has dismissed speculation linking him with a role in Star Wars Episode 7.

The Hot Fuzz star has been tipped for a part in the new film since Star Trek filmmaker Jj Abrams was appointed as director, but has now quashed such rumours.

"No idea where this silly rumour about me attached to the new Star Wars film came from but I can confirm that it's absolute Bantha poodoo (not true)," he wrote on Twitter.

Pegg, who has also worked with Abrams on the Mission: Impossible series in the past, was non-committal when Digital Spy quizzed him on the possibility of appearing in Star Wars.

Star Wars original trilogy actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford have all been linked
