Star Trek movie from Legion creator gets unfortunate update

Star Trekas a franchise looked as if it was going to be as everywhere and in your face as Star Wars at one point, with a planned movie by Quentin Tarantino, a planned fourth movie in the reboot series, a planned Discovery spin-off for Michelle Yeoh, a planned movie by Noah Hawley, a planned Discovery spin-off for Anson Mount, and a planned animated series.

The latter is actually out now (in America), but the rest of the projects seem to be in limbo, with one in particular apparently bottom of the priority list for Paramount's new movie boss.

The Hollywood Reporterstates that the studio's motion picture group president Emma Watts is looking over everything that's in the pipeline, and apparently isn't enamoured with Hawley's proposed plot about a killer virus, given the current climate.

The publication and its sources are unsure whether the Fargo and Legion boss will work on something else for the franchise, or move onto something else entirely.

There are no updates on any of the other projects from the report, with the last we've heard about the most intriguing one being that Quentin Tarantino is "steering away" from that project, and plans to bow out of the filmmaking business once he's made his tenth movie, which is likely to be Kill Bill vol 3.

Regarding the fourth reboot movie (which we assumed was the one that Hawley was working on, but apparently not), star Simon Pegg feels like it won't happen because they don't make the kind of money Marvel movies make.

Star Trek: Lower Decks is now streaming on CBS All Access in the US.
