MOVIES: Star Trek 4 - News Roundup *Updated 12th July 2018*



12th July 2018 - Danai Gurira Circling Role

Sources say Danai Gurira (Black Panther, The Walking Dead) is also circling the next Star Trek film at Paramount, the one that brought on S.J. Clarkson to become the first woman to helm a film in the vaunted Trek series. She directed the David Hare-scripted Collateral with Carey Mulligan starring for Netflix.

26th April 2018 - S.J. Clarkson in Talks to Direct

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Paramount is deep in the hunt for a female director, a mandate that comes from the top, to helm Star Trek 4, the new installment of the rebooted film series that stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto.

S.J. Clarkson, the woman who directed the pilot for Netflix’s acclaimed Marvel-based series Jessica Jones, is in talks to helm the new installment.

The studio does not have acting deals with the castmembers, which also include Simon Pegg, John Cho, Zoe Saldana and Karl Urban. Fresh contracts would have to be drawn up, making the project pricey, but Star Trek is a crown jewel for Paramount.


Paramount Pictures announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas that the studio was planning a fourth movie with Chris Hemsworth, who appeared as Chris Pine’s father in 2009’s “Star Trek.” Zachary Quinto is also set to return. Paramount is developing another “Star Trek” film from J.J. Abrams and Quentin Tarantino, but sources say it is still being written and would come after the fourth movie.

While details on “Star Trek 4” are vague, sources say a key plot point sees Pine’s character running into his father (Hemsworth) in a time travel ploy.

19th July 2016 - J.J. Abrams Won't Re-Cast Anton Yelchin's Role

Producer J.J. Abrams has decided that Anton Yelchin’s Pavel Chekov character will not be re-cast for future “Star Trek” movies.

“I would say there’s no replacing him,” Abrams told the Toronto Sun. “There’s no recasting. I can’t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better.”

The late Anton Yelchin, who died June 19 in a freak accident, had played the Chekov character in the three reboots. The third film in the revamped franchise premieres on Wednesday at Comic-Con in San Diego and opens in theaters on Friday.

Abrams told the newspaper he could not disclose if the next “Star Trek” film would include the death of Chekov’s character. “I have thought about it, we’re working on it, and it’s too early to talk about it,” he said.

18th July 2016 - 4th Installment Confirmed; Chris Hemsworth to Return

Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Bad Robot have made it official that the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise will return to the big screen for another outing.

In the next installment of Star Trek, Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father. The move has been rumored but never confirmed by the studio.

Chris Hemsworth, who appeared in 2009’s Star Trek, will return to the space saga as George Kirk to star alongside Pine.

The remaining cast also is expected to return with the exception of Anton Yelchin, who passed away last month and had played Chekov in the past three incarnations. No director has been named for the untitled fourth film.

J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will write the screenplay. J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber will produce through Bad Robot Productions. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance will executive produce.
