Two new Star Trek sequels in the works, Paramount chief confirms

Two new Star Trek sequels in the works, Paramount chief confirms

It's not yet clear if both these films are set within the universe of J.J. Abrams' earlier films, or if one of them is related to the previously announced Star Trek film from Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino. At CinemaCon the studio announced that they not one, but two Star Trek films in the works. However, this announcement was made before the release of Star Trek Beyond, and there has been little news about the project since.

Another "Star Trek" film is also being developed by J.J. Abrams and Quentin Tarantino, however, it will arrive after "Star Trek 4". This will make Clarkson the first female director to helm a Star Trek movie.

We've heard whispers and rumors of a time travel adventure featuring Chris Hemsworth as Kirk's (Chris Pine) dad. Sources now say the film is being written and would not debut until after Star Trek 4.

The two films could include the Star Trek film written by Quentin Tarantino, which the director pitched to Paramount last winter. Clarkson has a background in television, having helmed episodes of The Defenders, Vinyl, Jessica Jones, Orange is the New Black, Bates Motel and more.

Watch this space for more news on the forthcoming Star Trek movies as it flies in... Tarantino's attention is now focused on Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, while Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) is apparently working on the Trek screenplay. So I don't know what is going to happen. "Because he's got in his California movie (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt) to do, and then I think only doing one more film after that".

Paramount initially said after "Star Trek Beyond" came out that a fourth release would bring back "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth as Captain James Kirk's father, George.

When it comes to Star Trek 4, only the vaguest plot details are available.
