Abrams rebooted the Star Trek back in 2009. The franchise follows the crew of the USS Enterprise and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg and Karl Urban.

Quentin Tarantino is also in the middle of developing his own Star Trek movie, and has also been working with Abrams. His film would most likely earn an R-rating, although nothing has been officially confirmed.

Hawley is best know for his work on Legion -- which follows a young, schizophrenic mutant and stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) --and Fargo -- a television adaption of the Coen brothers' cult classic. Legion just completed its third and final season, while Fargo is currently filming its fourth.
