Today, HBO announced S. J. Clarkson has signed on to direct and executive producer the pilot of the upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off. However, Deadline notes that while S. J. Clarkson was previously set to direct Star Trek 4, the project has since been shelved Paramount Pictures:
A reason for the shelving was not mentioned, though Star Trek 4 hit a roadblock last summer after Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth reportedly stopped contract negotiations to appear in the project.
Meanwhile, the franchise continues on the small screen with Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access and a Jean-Luc Picard series is being developed for the streaming video on demand service. The new show is being developed for CBS All Access and is expected to follow Jean-Luc Picard 20 years after the events of the character’s previous adventure in Star Trek: Nemesis. The series is expected to premiere in 2019.
