The Fargo writer and showrunner will direct and produce the new Star Trek movie with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot. And Tarantino’s R-rated Trek movie is still happening. We think.
Star Trek 4 back on track with Noah Hawley at the helm.
Hawley, who made his feature film directorial debut earlier this year with Lucy In the Sky, is in final negotiations to continue the voyages of Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew, reports Deadline. J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot will produce the new film for Paramount, even though their deal is now at rival studio Warner Bros.
There is no word on plot specifics at this time, and Paramount is not saying anything, but we do know that the fourth film will center on the crew that has headlined the last three movies in the series, which started with Abrams’ 2009 hit, Star Trek. (Abrams directed the disappointing follow-up, 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness and Justin Lin stepped in to make the underrated Star Trek Beyond in 2016.)
