After a five-year hiatus, it looks like Paramount Pictures is ready to get back into the Star Trek movie business.
J.J. bringing Star Trek back to the big screen June 2023
Today, Paramount Pictures revealed a new release schedule for a number of its upcoming movies, moving several films, like Top Gun: Maverick, the Mission: Impossible 7 (and Mission 8), and more around. But buried in all the reshuffling was a “untitled Star Trek movie” set to be released on June 9, 2023.
There are no details on this Star Trek movie. TrekMovie reached out to Paramount Pictures who provided the following comment:
The UNTITLED STAR TREK film is a top secret project that we’re developing with J.J. Abrams producing.
Paramount said they were not able to share any other details at this time.
The latest news about Star Trek feature films came in March, when it was reported that the new head of Paramount’s movie division had ordered a script from Discovery writer Kalinda Vazquez for a new Trek film to be produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot productions. No details are known about that script except for it being described as “an original movie that [Vazquez] hatched.”
This latest script is at least the fourth Trek film that has gone into development at Bad Robot and Paramount since the release of Star Trek Beyond in the summer of 2016. However, today is the first time in the last five years that Paramount has set a release date for a Star Trek movie. It’s possible this June 2023 Trek film is from the Vazquez script, or it could be related to one of the other scripts completed over the last five years, or it could be something completely new. It would not be surprising for Paramount to be looking to develop multiple Star Trek films, as they and other studios are doing with other franchises.
This is a developing story. TrekMovie will provide updates as they become available.
