The last Star Trek movie, Star Trek Beyond, was released in 2016, grossing $158 million domestically and $184 million overseas.
J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have already completed the film's script, according to the Hollywood trade.
A major intervention arrived, in the form of Quentin Tarantino, who pitched a Star Trek movie idea to J.J. Abrams. Tarantino's attention is now focused on Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, while Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) is apparently working on the Trek screenplay. All of us are really excited about the idea of working with Quentin on a Trek film, but I know Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, who wrote the last film, are writing a script and there are another set of writers writing a script.
But it's one fans have been pining for given the flurry of news that studio partner Skydance has three different scripts in various stages of development.
In the world of shared universes, anything is possible. But this has an obvious downside: unlike Marvel, with its huge stable of characters, Star Trek 's household recognition begins and ends with Kirk and Spock. However, this announcement was made before the release of Star Trek Beyond, and there has been little news about the project since.
Rudy Gobert's Fourth Foul In Thunder Vs. Jazz Was Ridiculous
Gobert finally returned with just under eight minutes left in that game, but by that point, the Thunder had claimed an 88-87 lead. LeBron James offered fireworks to lift Cleveland, while Russell Westbrook and Paul George kept Oklahoma City's season alive.
Star Trek 4 has found a director: S.J. Today's statement from Paramount's CEO appears to confirm these statements.
Tantalizingly, he offered no details and it remains unclear if these will be a continuation of the reboot franchise or if they include a previously announced "Star Trek" movie from "Pulp Fiction" director Quentin Tarantino.
Both scenarios have their disadvantages.
The other option, which is the most intriguing one to me, is have one of the movies back in the "Prime" timeline - dust William Shatner off, and tell a story that way.
