Are you a fan of the Star Trek franchise? If so, you might be wondering if there is another Star Trek movie in the works. Let’s take a closer look at what we know so far.
History of Star Trek Movies
Star Trek has been a cultural phenomenon since it first aired on television in 1966. The show followed the adventures of the USS Enterprise and its crew as they explored new worlds and encountered strange new life forms. In 1979, the first Star Trek movie was released, and this kicked off a series of films that continued until 2002.
The Most Recent Star Trek Films
In 2009, J.J. Abrams rebooted the Star Trek franchise with a new movie featuring younger versions of the original characters. This film was well-received by fans and critics alike, and it spawned two sequels: “Star Trek Into Darkness” in 2013 and “Star Trek Beyond” in 2016.
As of now, there are no confirmed plans for another Star Trek movie. However, this doesn’t mean that there won’t be one in the future. In fact, there have been rumors that Quentin Tarantino might direct a new Star Trek film.
What We Know About Tarantino’s Potential Involvement
Tarantino has expressed interest in directing a Star Trek movie for several years now. In an interview with Empire Magazine in 2017, he said that he had an idea for a story that he thought would make “a fantastic Star Trek movie.” Later that year, it was reported that Tarantino had pitched his idea to J. Abrams, who was producing the next installment of the franchise at the time.
Since then, there has been little news about Tarantino’s involvement with a potential Star Trek movie. However, in a recent interview with Collider, Karl Urban (who played Dr. McCoy in the recent films) said that he had spoken with Tarantino about the project and that it was still in the works.
So, is there another Star Trek movie planned? The short answer is no, but there are rumors and speculation that suggest there might be one in the future. While we wait for more news, we can continue to enjoy the existing Star Trek films and TV shows and speculate about what might come next.
