Introduction

In recent years, there has been much speculation about whether or not there will be another Star Trek movie. The last movie in the franchise, Star Trek: Nemesis, was released in 2002 and was not well received by fans or critics. Since then, there have been no further movies or announcements about any plans for future films.

However, that doesn’t mean that there is no hope for another Star Trek movie. In fact, there are many reasons to believe that we may see a new Star Trek film in the near future. Here are just a few of those reasons:

1) There has been a resurgence of interest in the franchise in recent years.

2) The success of the 2009 reboot film showed that there is still a large audience for Star Trek movies.

3) At least one major cast member from the original series has expressed interest in returning for another film.

4) There have been several rumors and leaked information about potential plans for another Star Trek movie.

So while nothing has been officially announced yet, there is definitely reason to believe that we may see a new Star Trek movie soon.

The Rumors

Since the last Star Trek movie in 2016, fans have been clamoring for a new addition to the franchise. Although nothing has been confirmed by Paramount Pictures, the studio responsible for the movies, there have been several rumors about a new movie in development.

The first rumor began circulating in early 2017, when screenwriter Mark L Smith was reported to be working on a script for a new Star Trek movie. Smith is best known for his work on comedies like The Revenant and Vacation, but he also has experience with sci-fi, having worked on an episode of the TV show Colony.

In May 2017, another rumor surfaced that Paramount was interested in making a new Star Trek movie with Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool. This rumor was further fueled by comments made by Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the movies, at a convention in Australia. When asked if he knew anything about a new Star Trek movie, Quinto said he believed “there will be another film.”

Although there are no confirmation of a new Star Trek movie in development, it seems likely that Paramount will eventually make another addition to the franchise. With the huge success of recent movies like Deadpool and Logan, there is clearly still an audience for R-rated superhero movies. If Paramount can find the right team to make a new Star Trek movie that appeals to this audience, it could be a huge success.

The Possibilities

With the recent news of Quentin Tarantino potentially directing a new Star Trek movie, fans are wondering if this is finally the news they’ve been waiting for. Ever since J.J. Abrams relaunched the franchise in 2009, fans have been clamoring for more adventures in space. With the 50th anniversary of the franchise happening in 2016, it’s anyone’s guess as to what might happen next.

The Probabilities

There are several factors that need to be taken into account when trying to answer this question. The first is whether or not there is currently a demand for a new Star Trek movie. While the franchise has a large and passionate fan base, it’s been nearly a decade since the last film was released. In that time, many of those fans may have lost interest or moved on to other things. The second factor is whether or not the current rights holders (CBS and Paramount) are interested in making another film. While it’s possible they could be waiting for the right story or the right team to come along, it’s also possible that they’ve decided that the franchise isn’t as viable as it once was.

Ultimately, it’s impossible to say for sure whether or not there will be another Star Trek movie. However, based on the current state of affairs, it seems unlikely that we’ll see one anytime soon.

The Likelihood

There has been no official word from Paramount Pictures, the studio that owns the rights to Star Trek, about a new movie. However, there have been some recent developments that suggest a new Star Trek movie may be in the works.

In 2016, Paramount hired S.J. Clarkson to direct a new Star Trek movie. Clarkson is best known for her work on television shows such as Jessica Jones and The Defenders. This hire seemed to signal that Paramount was serious about making a new Star Trek movie.

However, development on the project seems to have stalled since then. In 2018, it was reported that the script for the new movie was being rewritten. Then, in 2019, it was reported that Clarkson had left the project.

With no director attached and the script seemingly in flux, it’s hard to say if a new Star Trek movie will actually be made. However, given Hollywood’s recent interest in reviving old franchises, it’s not impossible to imagine a newStar Trek movie hitting theaters in the next few years.

The Unlikelihood

The unfortunate answer to this question is that it is highly unlikely that there will be another Star Trek movie anytime soon. The last movie in the franchise, Star Trek: Nemesis, was released in 2002 and was not a box office success. The film grossed less than $67 million domestically and was far from recouping its $60 million budget.

With the weak performance of Nemesis, Paramount Pictures, who distributed the film, has been unwilling to invest in another Star Trek movie. In fact, J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek reboot was only made possible because of his personal relationship with the studio’s then-chairman Brad Grey.

While there has been talk of another Star Trek movie in recent years, most notably by former franchise star William Shatner, it seems that the chances of another film being made are slim to none.

The Outcome

With the release of “Star Trek Beyond” in 2016, it seems like a new”Star Trek” movie is inevitable. The film grossed over $343 million worldwide, and while that may not be as much as the previous two installments in the franchise, it’s still a solid number. With a budget of $185 million, the film was also reasonably profitable. So, it’s safe to say that there will probably be another “Star Trek” movie at some point in the future.

The Conclusion

In the end, we may never know for sure if there will be another Star Trek movie. Abrams has said that he is not currently working on one, but he has also said that he would be open to the idea if the right story came along. So, it seems that it is up in the air at the moment. Even if Abrams is not directly involved, it is possible that another director could take on the challenge of creating a new Star Trek movie. Only time will tell.

The Aftermath

It has been a little over a year since the release of the last Star Trek movie, into Darkness. The events of that film and its predecessor, 2009’s reboot, have left the future of the franchise in an interesting place. With Nero (Eric Bana) and Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch) out of the way, what villains can the writers possibly come up with next? And with Spock (Zachary Quinto) now in charge of the Enterprise, where will Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) fit in?

The Future

The future of the Star Trek franchise is currently unknown. The last film in the series, Star Trek: Beyond, was released in 2016 and grossed $343 million worldwide. However, the film was not as successful as its predecessor, Star Trek: Into Darkness, which grossed $467 million worldwide. In addition, the franchise has been on hiatus since 2017, when the television series Star Trek: Discovery debuted.

There have been rumors of a new Star Trek film in development, but nothing has been confirmed by either Paramount Pictures or Bad Robot Productions. If a new film is indeed in development, it is likely still early in pre-production and it is unclear when it would be released.
