Noah Hawley's "Star Trek" movie is being put on hold while Paramount Motion Picture Group President Emma Watts re-assesses the studio's slate, according to a report on Deadline.

With the CBS All Access series Discovery and Picard proving the franchise is still successful for the studio, it makes sense Paramount would rather take its time to move forward with another Star Trek film rather than rush one out in a similar vein to Beyond.

There are two other options on the table; while Quentin Tarantino is no longer planning to direct, The Revenant's Mark L. Smith wrote a version for him which was set to follow the Enterprise crew on Earth in 1930s era New York City (where they clash with numerous gangsters of the time). These decisions will take place over the next few weeks.


That Quentin Tarantino's cinema is very different from what the science fiction series Star Trek is more than evident, but one of the many surprising things about the director is that he is a huge fan of it, that's why when it was announced Back in 2017 that he was going to direct a Star Trek movie didn't seem like such a far-fetched idea.

Between Fargo and a book he is completing, Hawley (who made his directing debut on the arthouse pic Lucy in the Sky) has plenty to keep him occupied.

Originally the proposed fourth Star Trek film in the rebooted universe would have featured the return of Chris Hemsworth's George Kirk for a time-traveling storyline with Chris Pine's James Kirk.


Rumor has it that Hawley's script dealt with a deadly virus as part of the plot, which might not play as well given the state of the world right now.

Chris Pine as Kirk in Star Trek: Beyond. Star Trek, several sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Along with Star Trek a much bigger label on tv than it is actually been actually in many years, Paramount possesses a sturdy motivation to receive as well as locate the cash one thing relocating earlier instead than later on. The film franchise was rebooted with J.J. This came from Deadline.
