Paramount Photos has been attempting to get a brand new Star Trek film off the bottom for years with producer J.J. Abrams. That is certainly one of their greatest franchises, and so they can’t appear to get a brand new movie within the franchise going! It’s loopy as a result of they’ve had some critically superior expertise concerned together with Quentin Tarantino and Noah Hawley, however after Star Trek Past, the TV facet of issues has been propelling the franchise ahead in actually cool methods!
Within the newest situation of SFX Magazine, Star Trek veteran Jonathan Frakes talked about the way forward for the franchise, and in regard to the movie facet of issues, he’s not hopeful. He mentioned:
“Movies are tough! Even JJ [Abrams] can’t get this fourth movie off the ground. All those wonderful rumors? Noah Hawley was attached to a ‘Star Trek’ movie, and Quentin was toying with people’s emotions about doing a movie. If those two names can’t get a f***ing movie made, I don’t know. TV is the future, it seems to me.”
Yeah, he’s proper. It looks as if TV is the long run for the franchise. Certain, it might be nice to see one other Star Trek journey on the large display, however it’d must be nice! It’ll have to satisfy the requirements of storytelling that we’re seeing within the present Star Trek reveals, and none of the newest movies have reached that bar.
A fourth Star Trek movie below Abrams was within the works for a while, and it might have seen Chris Pine‘s Captain Kirk unite together with his father, performed by Chris Hemsworth. There was an fascinating story there, however they by no means managed to get it together. There have been numerous different makes an attempt to make a movie since then, the newest concerned Matt Shakman (WandaVision) directing. However he dropped out, and that challenge has since been shelved.
As for the TV facet of issues, Frakes has been closely concerned with Star Trek: Picard and after its third and last season comes, he nonetheless thinks there is a chance to develop and hold the story going for a few of these characters. He mentioned:
“I hope the road leads to another series. The setup is there clearly, as you’ll see, by the end of the season. It all seems to me that the characters in this final season of ‘Picard,’ should it work out, are primed for another journey. I’m certainly optimistic. I think it may be the end of the ‘Picard’ story, but I’m not sure it’s the end of the ‘Next Generation’ story. That’s the vibe. I’m an eternal optimist. I’m sure it’s what [showrunner] Terry [Matalas] would like!”
Hell, yeah! Let’s hold that Subsequent Era story going! I’m completely up for that! So, we will not be getting any new Star Trek films anytime quickly, however there are many superior issues taking place with the reveals that the followers are having fun with. It’s so humorous as a result of Star Wars is having the identical situation proper now!
