Is There Going to Be a 4 Star Trek Movie?

Are you a fan of the Star Trek movie franchise? If so, you might be wondering if there is going to be a fourth installment. In this article, we’ll explore the latest news and rumors surrounding Star Trek 4.


The Star Trek movie franchise started in 1979 with the release of “Star Trek: The Motion Picture.” Since then, there have been 13 movies in total, the most recent being “Star Trek Beyond” in 2016.

The Delay

After the release of “Star Trek Beyond,” it was announced that a fourth movie was in development. However, things came to a halt when negotiations with lead actor Chris Pine fell through. Pine reportedly asked for more money than the studio was willing to pay.

The Cast

Aside from Pine, other cast members such as Zachary Quinto (who plays Spock) and Zoe Saldana (who plays Uhura) were also reportedly having contractual issues. However, it seems that these issues have been resolved as both Quinto and Saldana have expressed their interest in returning for a fourth movie.

The Director

Initially, S.J. Clarkson was attached to direct the fourth Star Trek movie.

However, due to scheduling conflicts, she had to step down from the project. It is currently unclear who will be directing the movie.

The Plot

Details about the plot of Star Trek 4 are scarce at this point. However, it has been reported that it will involve time travel and feature Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as George Kirk (the father of Chris Pine’s character).


So, is there going to be a fourth Star Trek movie? The answer is not entirely clear at this point.

While negotiations with Chris Pine have reportedly stalled the project for now, other cast members have expressed their interest in returning. Additionally, the plot of the movie has been hinted at but not confirmed. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next in the Star Trek universe.
