Don't be delusional, there will never be another TNG film.
I have to wonder how much of the angst against "new Trek," from the old Trek actors is because their "stock," and thus earning ability is being diminished at Trek conventions - book signings - etc with the popularity of JJ's Trek? Every new ittiration of Trek I'd imagine makes former Trek stars less significant and less bankable.
If you will, Star Trek 2009 cost Patrick Stewart 20 million dollars.
It could easily be argued that sticking his nose into the writing process of Insurrection and Nemesis cost him future Trek paychecks.
