2024 marks the 8th year since the last Star Trek feature film, 2016’s Star Trek Beyond. Paramount has made many attempts to follow that film up with the latest news being they are actually developing two new Trek films. Now one of the stars of the recent films, Zoe Saldana, is weighing in on all the latest reports about Trek.
Saldana talks Star Trek 4
While promoting her Paramount+ series Special Ops: Lioness, Zoe Saldana talked to comicbook.com about the latest Star Trek news. The actress said she was keeping up on reports Paramount is planning on moving forward with a follow-up to Star Trek Beyond while also doing an “origin story” movie set before the 2009 Star Trek film. Saldana said of the news…
“I know. I mean I heard what you heard in the trades. I just heard that they’re gearing up to do a new one with a younger sort of, take on it. Like it’s been off,” Saldana admitted. “I don’t know if it’s from the before or the after, but that they really still hope to grab all of us veterans and bring us back for one last round. Listen, I know it’s a lot to wrangle a whole bunch of people with busy schedules. But, working with J.J. Abrams, and for J.J. Abrams at Bad Robot was always just a wonderful and beautiful experience for me. So, if I get to do that one last time, I would be so grateful.”
The latest news regarding the Star Trek 4 follow-up to Beyond was that Paramount was planning on it being the final film for the Kelvin cast. No director has been announced since Matt Shakman exited that project in 2022. Toby Haynes has been tapped to helm the separate “origin story” movie that “expands on the Star Trek universe.”
These potential feature film projects are being developed while Paramount+ moves forward on their first made-for-streaming Star Trek movie, with Star Trek: Section 31 set to start filming this week in Toronto. There is also another potential mysterious film project that would involve the character of Jean-Luc Picard which Patrick Stewart said was being written late last year.
As always, we will do our best to keep up with all the latest Star Trek movie news.
