As a fan of the Star Trek franchise, it’s natural to wonder if there will be another Star Trek movie in the future. While there has been some uncertainty surrounding the franchise, there are reasons to believe that we haven’t seen the last of the crew of the USS Enterprise.
Recent History of Star Trek Movies
Since the reboot in 2009, there have been three Star Trek movies released: Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), and Star Trek Beyond (2016). All three films were directed by J.J. Abrams and starred Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock. Each movie was well-received by audiences and critics alike.
However, after the release of Star Trek Beyond, there was some uncertainty about whether or not another movie would be made. Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth, who played Kirk’s father in the opening scene of the 2009 film, were both in talks to star in a fourth movie but ultimately walked away due to salary disputes with Paramount Pictures.
The Future of Star Trek Movies
Despite these setbacks, it seems that there is still hope for more Star Trek movies in the future. In fact, Quentin Tarantino was reportedly working on a script for a new Star Trek film that would have been rated R. However, he has since announced that he will not direct this project.
Aside from this project, Paramount Pictures has also announced plans for a fourth installment in their current Star Trek series. Noah Hawley, best known for creating television shows like Fargo and Legion, has been tapped to write and direct this next film.
Possible Plot Details
While details about this new movie are scarce at this point, it has been reported that it will not feature the same cast as the previous three films. Instead, it will focus on a new crew and possibly even a new ship.
There have also been rumors that this film will take place in the same universe as the television series Star Trek: Discovery. However, this has not been confirmed by Paramount Pictures or CBS.
In short, while there has been some uncertainty about the future of Star Trek movies, it seems that there is still hope for more adventures in space. With Noah Hawley at the helm and a new crew potentially taking over, fans of the franchise have a lot to look forward to in the coming years.
