Pegg Eyes Star Wars Job
British actor Simon Pegg wants to write a new Star Wars story - if he can make friends with director George Lucas.
The Shaun of the Dead star is a huge fan of the sci-fi films, but has criticised 1999 prequel movie The Phantom Menace.
Now he has his heart set on working for the forthcoming TV series of the legendary franchise - but fears he has made himself an enemy of the production company with his comments.
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."
