    I have a feeling that if Paramount had decided to pay him according to his original contract, he would have been there regardless of the quality of script. Lots of people find reasons for not wanting to do something, after the offer has already been pulled.

    Probably. Money talks, etc. etc.

    But, there is something to be said for taking a break from the big universe ending epics of MCU and just having fun with a project like MIB.

    keep trying to imagine the poster for the Hemsworth ST4:
    long hair/bearded Hemsworth all prominent in ripped Starfleet uniform (to show off muscular arms) holding a phaser rifle like a hammer, with Pine, Quinto and Saldana below holding phasers in charlies angel action poses, and in middle the EntA and Kelvin under attack from the Narada and some BOPs. tagline: 'the battle to avenge the past has begun'

    Oh... you read the script, too?

    (Rhetorical question, because — of course — you haven't. You're just doing that same bit where you drop into a thread to — once again — remind everyone reading that there are many aspects of the Kelvinverse movies with which you were unhappy or disappointed, and then go on to state that — because of your disillusionment with them, and regardless of whether anyone else may hold a differing opinion — no one should ever be permitted to make any more movies in that setting.

    Yeah. That bit. The one you've worn out through overuse. You probably ought to give a thought to retiring it soon. It's OK to not like things, but...

    Just sayin'.)

    You're probably right.

    Having thought they were done they do seem to keep bouncing back and I keep reacting.

    No need to, obviously. Looks like folks pretty much know my take on the subject...

    Even earlier than that, as TNG used scripts from Phase II (The Child and Devil's Due).

    I'd be really happy if that means two Kelvins and one Tarantino.


    ***Oh and I'm not going to read through the whole thread, so I don't know if it's been touched on. But since this is post-merger have they said whether Kurtzman going to exec or will Hawley bring in his own people?

    Interesting article. Some points:

    Add in the increased costs which come from being the fourth in the series, with an in-demand cast (in contrast to previous Trek film series), and there's not a lot of room to move if they're significantly cutting the budget.

    Not so much outside the US, going by box office for previous films. Their takings tend to be much more US-centric than other genre films.

    The season 2 finale for Discovery was a movie-level spectacle. It's hard even for a film to top that.

    Damn straight.

    The only issue I have with Into Darkness, is that it simply took them way too long to get it into theaters.

    I'll still be surprised if we see 4, let alone three others. Another pie in the sky article.

    People need to realise this cast is not the young cast anymore we fell in love with. all the actors apart from pine are now in their 40s, pine is approaching 40.

    I will always say that paramount threw away this franchise and wasted so many opportunities. I doubt there would be a 5th or 6th film.

    its best they just reboot and start fresh and let this kelvin film end as a trilogy.

    1991 called, Star Trek VI is cancelled because the cast is too old.
