    I should really have been/still be? more excited for ST4 considering its probably just the Orci3 rejigged with Thor instead of Shatner .. but then when the Tarantino news came out (and then the whole pay dispute halted ST4) was like 'ok ditch Trek Thor and give me Tarantino Trek!'

    It's dead, Jim, to put it another way. The two Chris's pulling out over pay issues seems to have the straw that broke the camel's back. Question now is will Paramount do with the franchise.

    Bad Robot appears to have a contract that presumably runs out sometime (2020?) and is it true that after so many years with no new installments Paramount loses the rights to produce Star Trek films? I wonder if we'll see something slapped together quickly (think The Fantastic Four (1994) or The Amazing Spider-Man) at some point just so Paramount can keep the rights otherwise they'll presumably revert to CBS to do with as they please.

    I don't believe the film rights for Trek work this way.

    Ive a feeling a some point early next year we'll hear Trek Thor has been officially binned and pre production about to begin on Tarantino Trek (with the JJ cast) for summer 2020 or 2021 release

    The short of it is that Paramount refused to pay Pine and Hemsworth, so SJ Clarkson's ST4 is DOA. The Bad Robot/Paramount Pictures partnership ends 2020, at which point Paramount will likely reboot Trek once again.

    Pretty sure Tanatino Trek was a Bad Robot collaboration, so I supect it's as dead as the movie with Hemsworth.

    It's still a mystery whether QT will use the JJ cast or create his own crew and a new ship or whether his film might be either in the TOS universe or TNG Universe? I'm looking forward to his Manson movie, after that I hope his full attentions will be on Star Trek. His film would have to be separate from the JJ sequel because Paramount hired a director.

    I would have liked to see a Star Trek espionage story involving the Orion Syndicate, Mission Impossible style. The closest parallel from Trek was Mirror, Mirror but that's an awesome episode.

    Yes but with enough plot holes to fly the Narada through!

    My gut feeling is that they will let it rest and come back with some kind of TNG reboot/reimagining, depending on how the Picard series goes.

    Looks like Midnight's Edge was right on the money.

    JJ Trek is dead.

    It's a shame. 10 years ago, Paramount had the perfect reboot with a great cast and audience interest..... and then they ruined it. So much wasted potential.

    Yeah.... no. A lot of their details are wrong and made up, and the story itself was broken before. Just because they get one detail correct doesn't validate the rest of their clickbait nonsense.

    What do you think was made up? Because the trade article you linked doesn't discuss the investor funding loss. That's what really stops ST4 from ever happening now.

    No, the stars leaving is what killed the movie. They were never going to recast the two most important parts in a 4th Kelvin movie any more than Avengers: Endgame would recast Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers. The investors didn't so much "pull their funding" as there was no longer a movie being shot in January so there was nothing to fund.

    I'm going to celebrate if they finally start shooting ST4. If it happens...

    Beyond was such a blast for me. I'd hate to see it all stopped now. :(
