Hi Trekkers, seems like covid has hammered home a good volley of photon torpedoes towards Starfleets legendary USS Enterprise NCC 1701. Will the shields hold or weaken? How much longer can you hold out for? I hope you're keeping well my friends. So the big Question on all our minds - "Is Star Trek 4 dead in space?
Negotiations with Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth ended in Aug 2018 along with boldly returning to the kelvin timeline. Will our beloved USS Enterprise ever be re-appearing on the big screen again anytime soon? Is this game over? My understanding is J.J. Abrams is still Star Trek's movie aegis, so I'm sure he realizes millions of loyal trekkies around the world are still watching their every move....!!!!!!
Fans were counting on the "Kelvin Star Trek Creator" to beam trek into our lives again. So much hope. We've had so many quitter movie "directors" slinging their hooks on us trekkers and calling it a day. Meanwhile lets not forget Disney basking in the glory with BoxOffice hits after heisting Treks only Star Trek's Kelvin expert in the universe. Some might even say BadRobot & Co helped produce Star Wars with geekside wizardry utilizing the darkside into a smash hit epic for fans. I guess the practise runs on Star Trek helped eh?. Touché DISNEY - Some might speculate Whats next? remember Gulf and Western? look what happened to them.
|QUENTIN TARANTINO AND WIFE DANIELLA|
Since Aug 2018 Quentin Tarantino has decided not to direct his Star Trek film which I guess means he didn't get the "R rated" green light from Paramount Pictures. Noah Hawley was hired in November 2019 to write and direct a new version of the franchise which has been canned also. It seems theres a new head honcho at Paramount calling the shots and her name is Emma Watts. Deadline got scoop.
DEADLINE: And is Star Trek possibly still in the cards for you at the new Emma Watts-run Paramount or is that too on hold?
HAWLEY: It doesn’t appear to be in my immediate future. I think when Emma came in, she took a look at the franchise and wanted to go in a different direction with it. But you know, life is long, we were very close to production but in this business that doesn’t mean much. You got to get out of the gate to be in the race if you know what I mean.
Should we light a campsite fire and sing row, row, row your ship gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Trek is just a dream.
What would Spock say?
Who is Star Trek's Kelvin Creator in your opinion?
1. Gene Roddenberry
2. J.J. Abrams
3. Emma Watts
