Long wait and no prosperity used to overshadow a potential fourth film in the space saga. However, a few days ago, the project offered solid signs of life. It so happened that during Paramount’s Investor Day, the producer responsible for the recent trilogy star trek, JJ Abrams, announced that a new installment was in development and would see the return of the original cast. But it seems that the crew of the USS Enterprise was not even aware of his involvement.
According to The Hollywood Reporterthe main cast of star trek —or a majority of its members— was unaware that Paramount would announce a fourth film on February 15. Less did they know that JJ Abrams would hint at the presence of all these famous histriones, including Chris Pine (Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Karl Urban (McCoy), Zoe Saldaña (Nyota) and John Cho (Sulu).
From the report, it is inferred that none of them have signed a contract with the distributor. Moreover, it seems that the only one who barely holds early conversations with Paramount is Pine, because his character will continue to be “the axis of the project.”
The truth is that the negotiations will have to be rushed if the production team really wants to start filming in the fall of 2022, as stipulated in the past Investor Day.
