Is There a New Star Trek Movie on the Horizon?

Are you eagerly anticipating the next Star Trek movie? If so, you’re not alone.

Fans of the iconic sci-fi franchise have been eagerly awaiting news about the next installment in the series. So, is there a new Star Trek movie on the horizon?

What We Know So Far

First, let’s take a look at what we know so far. In 2019, it was announced that writer/director Noah Hawley would be helming the next Star Trek movie. Hawley is best known for his work on the hit TV series Fargo and Legion.

At the time of the announcement, it was reported that Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and other members of the cast from J.J. Abrams’ rebooted Star Trek films were expected to return. However, there has been no official confirmation regarding casting.

The Status of the Project

So where does that leave us? Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much news about the project since Hawley was announced as director. However, there have been some hints dropped by those involved that suggest things are still moving forward.

For instance, in an interview with Collider in early 2020, Karl Urban (who played Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy in Abrams’ films) said that he had “recently spoken” with Hawley about the movie and that he was excited about what he had heard.

What Fans Want

Of course, fans have their own ideas about what they want to see in a new Star Trek film. Some want to see more exploration of new worlds and civilizations – after all, exploration is at the heart of what makes Star Trek so compelling.

Others want to see more character development for some of their favorite crew members – particularly Sulu and Uhura, who haven’t received as much focus in previous films.


So, is there a new Star Trek movie on the horizon? While there hasn’t been much news in recent months, it seems that the project is still moving forward. And with Hawley at the helm and the potential return of the cast from Abrams’ films, there’s reason to be excited.

Only time will tell what direction the next Star Trek movie will take, but one thing is for sure – fans are eagerly waiting to boldly go where no one has gone before.
