News The ongoing next Star Trek movie thread

Paramount quietly announced a new release date of June 9, 2023 on Startrek.com and explictly stated that it'll be a "Star Trek Universe" (i.e. the Prime universe as depicted in the Paramount+ shows) movie. All the other new movie threads have been shut so figured it'd be nice to have one ongoing one. This is the second or third release date (it was Christmas '22 at one point, IIRC) and there's no further information at present.

There were rumours awhile ago that Section 31 might be realised as a movie instead of a series, so it may star Michelle Yeoh as Phillipa Georgiou, wherever and whenever she pops out of Carl's portal.

Personally, I'm still hoping they'll make that Star Trek 4 with Chris Pine's crew meeting Chris Hemsworth's George Kirk (after Paramount market research showed the Kelvin crew to stilm have audience interest and name value) but being set in the STU rather than the Kelvin timeline makes that unlikely. Unless they're saying "Star Trek Universe" as a blanket term for anything Trek, rather than just their current interconnected shows.

What does everyone think?
 
Bummer. I'm not a doom poster. I think it will get made eventually but it's probably not going to make that promised 2023 date.

Still looking forward to this film. The cast is older and they could do a kind of "getting the team back together" movie. Could be awesome.
 
So does this mean, this thread won’t get locked like the others?

Great, because i got questions:

- what is the current official status of the next Star Trek Movie? Is it still in development, have actors signed up, who is the director?

- how often did the concept of the next ST movie change over the course of the last 5 years?

- who provides the most reliant info on the status of the movie? What is the best 2022 „Star Trek The Next Movie Info Website“?

- What is the holdup? Marvel puts out like 4 movies every year. If one sucks, they will just bring another one. Why can’t we have a Star Trek movie hydra? Surely something good will come to light if they just have the balls to release some friggin movies…

- Will the mods lock this thread? Is it somehow forbidden to talk about the next movie?
 
So, who are we betting on as the next announced director? Someone new, the return of J.J, giving it to Frakes, or just cancelling it completely?
 
What a mess.
At this point it's comical.

In case people lost track of various announced movie projects over the past years, here is an overview:

1) Chris Hemsworth as Kirk's father (announced July 17th, 2016)

Abrams is producing the new, as-yet-untitled film through Bad Robot, with Matt Shakman (“WandaVision”) directing from a screenplay by Josh Friedman (“Avatar 2”) and Cameron Squires (“WandaVision”) based on a earlier draft by Lindsey Beer (“Sierra Burgess Is a Loser”) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (“Captain Marvel”).


Miscellaneous Projects:
1) Zachary Quinto mentioned in an interview in 2018 that there are three competing scripts:
The Quentin Tarantino script, the Simon Pegg/Doug Jung script, and a script from a mysterious "set of writers". https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2018...three-competing-scripts-next-star-trek-movie/

I feel we can also add Orci's unmade movie into that mix somewhere.

I just find it so baffling that the TV division can have five series in production at the same time, while the movie division can't get one film off the ground.

Covid, scheduling and lack of willingness to spend money.
 
I'm not sure that holds up since those same factors apply to every production right now. And if they were to make a smaller-scale movie, money wouldn't be such a big issue. Money was obviously a factor in the Hemsworth film falling apart, but that was apparently resolved for the later projects.

I think there is a lack of commitment to spending the money in an uncertain market.
