Most Star Trek news lately has focused on the latest TV shows for CBS All Access. Discovery has upset quite a lot of fans and it remains to be seen if Picard will be a hit with fans or not. But now there’s news about an upcoming movie that will be written and directed by Noah Hawley. Hawley is so-far best known for his work on FX TV series Fargo and Legion, but he made his feature film debut earlier this year on Lucy in the Sky.
He is a very capable writer and director so it will be interesting to see what he comes up with. It’s too early for word on plotlines or a release date, but according to Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline, this will be the fourth film in the current series of movies, featuring returning stars including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Karl Urban. It’s also separate from a spin-off Star Trek project under development with Quentin Tarantino as its producer.
This might be enough to get long time fans excited about a new Star Trek movie. It remains to be seen how it will work out but it is intriguing news.
