Two New Star Trek Movies Are In Development

It helps that Tarantino is particularly interested in Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise", which he described as one of "the great space stories", able to "bear a two-hour treatment".

Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos opened the studio's segment at the annual CinemaCon film industry convention in Las Vegas with the news, praising director John Krasinski, who stars in the monster invasion thriller opposite real-life wife Emily Blunt. "He provided no new details, though Quentin Tarantino is known to be developing a Trek film with J.J. Abrams". However, this announcement was made before the release of Star Trek Beyond, and there has been little news about the project since. Summer 2020 still seems a likely target for the next Star Trek film based on development times and Paramount's current announced slate.

Hiring women directors has become an actionable priority for studios in recent months, and results are starting to be seen as more female filmmakers are getting hired for franchise projects.

Meanwhile, the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek is still in development as well.

Are you down for more Star Trek movies? Payne and Patrick McKay - which would involve Chris Hemsworth returning as George Kirk. Fritz also tweeted, "Paramount is working on two new Star Trek films, says CEO Jim Gianopulos". Sources now say the film is being written and would not debut until after Star Trek 4. That script is being written by Mark L. Smith (The Revenant, Overlord). "He's got in his California movie [Once Upon A Time In Hollywood] to do and then I think [he's] only doing one more film after that", he told the Happy Sad Confused podcast. Fingers crossed, but I just can't strongly believe it's going to happen.

Yesterday, I had slight trouble believing either would happen, but now I'm not so sure about this Hemsworth one.

It's not clear if the Pegg and Jung script Quinto mentions is for Star Trek 4, or yet another possible Trek sequel.
