If you’re a die-hard Star Trek fan, you must be eagerly waiting for the next movie in the franchise after Nemesis. In this article, we’ll explore what’s in store for the future of Star Trek on the big screen.
The Future of Star Trek Movies
After Nemesis, there was no new Star Trek movie for almost a decade. But in 2009, J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise with a new cast and crew. The rebooted series consisted of three movies: Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), and Star Trek Beyond (2016).
Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home
Initially, there were plans for a fourth movie in the rebooted series. However, due to various reasons such as contractual disputes and script issues, the project got delayed indefinitely. According to reports, Chris Pine who played Captain Kirk had issues with his contract negotiations with Paramount Pictures which ultimately led to the project being shelved.
The Quentin Tarantino Project
In 2017, news broke that Quentin Tarantino would be directing a new Star Trek movie. This announcement took everyone by surprise as Tarantino was not known for directing science-fiction movies. The project was described as an R-rated movie that would take place in a parallel universe.
Since then, there have been no significant updates about the Tarantino project. It’s unclear whether he’s still attached to direct or if the project is still happening at all.
The Noah Hawley Project
In late 2019, it was announced that Noah Hawley would be directing and writing a new Star Trek movie. Hawley is best known for his work on TV shows such as Fargo and Legion. According to reports, this new movie will feature a completely new cast and crew and won’t be related to any previous Star Trek movies or TV shows.
Since then, there have been no new updates about the project. It’s unclear when the movie will start production or when it will be released.
In conclusion, after the release of Nemesis, there was a long gap before the rebooted series started. However, the future of Star Trek movies looks uncertain at this point.
While there were plans for a fourth movie in the rebooted series and a Tarantino project was announced, neither of these projects seem to be happening anytime soon. The only confirmed project is the Noah Hawley project which is still in its early stages of development. As such, it’s difficult to predict when we’ll get to see the next Star Trek movie on the big screen.
