Though J.J. Abrams has moved on to greener, more Star Wars-ier pastures, that doesn’t mean the band is breaking up. News came from Pegg himself that he will reprise his role as Benji Dunn, the lighter side of the franchise.
While not shocking news, it was certainly a question with a proposed Tintin sequel and BFF Edgar Wright‘s upcoming Ant-Man blockbuster. It’s nice to see that Pegg will balance out the black hole of seriousness and candor that Tom Cruise brings to most everything he does (when he’s not being ridiculous and/or hilarious).
Filming starts in February, so expect an appearance in theaters in good ole’ 2015.
