Noah Hawley to write and direct Star Trek 4 with Chris Pine and company returning
Having been forced to shelve its plans for the S.J. Clarkson-headlined Star Trek 4 after failing to reach a deal with actors Chris Pine (James Kirk) and Chris Hemsworth (George Kirk), Paramount Pictures is now moving ahead with another big screen outing for the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise – and no, it’s not the Quentin Tarantino project.
As revealed by Deadline, Fargo and Legion creator and Lucy in the Sky director Noah Hawley is in final talks with the studio to beam aboard the sci-fi franchise as writer and director of a fourth outing for the Kelvin timeline crew led by Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and John Cho.
Should Hawley close his deal, which is expected, he will work with producer J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot banner to produce the new film – the fourth since Abrams rebooted the franchise with 2009’s Star Trek, and the first since 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.
Further details on Star Trek 4 are being kept under wraps at present, but Deadline’s article goes on to state that the Quentin Tarantino project also remains very much on the table, with Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) having written the script and Tarantino still potentially interested in directing.
Are you excited that the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise look set to reunite for another adventure? What do you make of Hawley as writer and director? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
