Revealed: Edgar Wright Directed One Shot in 'Star Trek Into Darkness'
Briefly: A month ago we covered a fun story tweeted by British director Edgar Wright about a tease that he "directed one shot in another summer movie. But which?" At first many thought it was Iron Man 3, but he quickly confirmed it wasn't. So, with the Simon Pegg connection obvious, the next guess was Star Trek Into Darkness. Edgar finally revealed early today via a photo on his twitter that it was indeed Star Trek. "There are 2120 shots in 'Star Trek Into Darkness'. I directed one of them," he wrote. The photo shows him behind a clapboard on what looks to be the Klingon set from the movie next to an IMAX camera. See below.

He did it to get experience with the IMAX camera.

He directed one of the 2,120 lens flares? I'm impressed.
