Simon Pegg Banned From Driving After Getting Fourth Speeding Ticket

Simon Pegg doesn’t have a license anymore.

The 50-year-old Mission: Impossible actor has lot his license after being caught speeding for a fourth time, according to a report from The Sun.

The site reports that Simon earned his fourth ticket in less than three years and as a result, Wimbledon magistrates gave him four penalty points, taking him to 13, and disqualified him for six months.

Simon was also fined £660 (around $900) with £85 ($115) costs.

While he didn’t appear in court himself, Simon did admit to the one charge of speeding on the A41 Hendon Way in his Mercedes.

“Mr Pegg pleads guilty and takes full responsibility. He does not want to use up court time arguing exceptional circumstances. The ban will cause him difficulties but they will not be exceptional. It is something he deeply regrets and he wants to apologise to others effected by his ban,” Simon‘s lawyer, Richard Saynor, stated on his behalf.

Late last year, Simon was spotted with Pom Klementieff, shooting some funny videos around Venice during some downtime from MI7 filming.

The video is set in Venice, where Tom is currently shooting Mission: Impossible 7, with co-star Rebecca Ferguson making an appearance as well.

The video is called “Au Revoir Chris Hemsworth,” and she sings and playfully mocks the 37-year-old star: “One thing I’m certain of, and I’m sorry to break your heart, but my team is better than yours,” she declares.

Would Simon Pegg Reunite With Tom Cruise To Film A Movie in Space?

Simon Pegg would maybe say yes to reuniting with Tom Cruise to film a movie in space.

Tom made headlines earlier this year when he teamed up with NASA and Elon Musk to pitch a movie that would be filmed in space.

NASA later confirmed that they have had talks with Tom about the movie.

NASA Administrator James Bridenstine revealed that the agency would be using the movie to inspire young kids to get into aerospace.

“If we can get Tom Cruise to inspire an elementary kid to join the Navy and be a pilot, why can’t we get Tom Cruise to inspire the next Elon Musk? That’s what we need,” he had said. “We need a new generation of many Elon Musks. That’s what we’re doing with our launch [and the film]. It’s all about the next generation.”

Now, Simon is opening up about rejoining his Mission Impossible co-star for it.

“I’d love to go into space, it would be amazing! But you know, you have to also think about your family and safety and stuff,” he shared with NME.

He added, “Tom never does anything recklessly and all of his stunts are meticulously designed, rehearsed and trained for. If he does it, it will be really safe. So, I don’t know, you never know.”

Shaun of the Dead's Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Reunite for Coronavirus PSA (Video)

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are here with a Shaun of the Dead-inspired coronavirus PSA.

The actors reimagined a scene from their 2004 horror comedy and gave some helpful coronavirus tips in the parody video, which they posted on YouTube on Thursday (March 19).

It features Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as their respective characters in the film – Shaun and Ed – talking on the phone, but instead of planning where they should go during the zombie apocalypse, they instead decide to “follow the [National Health Service’s] guidelines to the letter” and stay inside.

“If you can, stay at home, have a cup of tea, and wait for all this to blow over,” Simon says.

The Plan

Here's Why a Fourth 'Star Trek' Movie Might Not Happen with One of the Stars Throwing Some Shade

Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the Star Trek franchise, doesn’t expect a fourth film to happen.

“The fact is, Star Trek movies don’t make Marvel money,” Simon told Total Film.”They make maybe $500 million at the most, and to make one now, on the scale they’ve set themselves, is $200 million. You have to make three times that to make a profit.”

He then threw a little shade at the studio, saying, “I don’t feel like the last one… [Paramount Pictures] didn’t really take advantage of the 50th anniversary. The regimen at the time dropped the ball on the promo of the film. And we’ve lost momentum. I think losing Anton [Yelchin] was a huge blow to our little family, and our enthusiasm to do another one might have been affected by that. So I don’t know.”

2016′s Star Trek Beyond, which was co-written by Simon, did not do as well as 2016′s Star Trek Into the Darkness at the box office. Beyond earned $344 million vs. Darkness‘ $467 million.

There is still some success in the Star Trek universe.
