There seems to be a lot going on with Star Trek at the moment! Discovery is about to start a second season, Quentin Tarantino is apparently working on his own Star Trek movie and S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, The Defenders) has taken over directing duties from Justin Lin for the fourth instalment in the Kelvin universe.
While appearing on Larry King Now, Simon Pegg was questioned about the upcoming sequel to 2016's Star Trek Beyond:
I met the new director, S. J. Clarkson, who is the first female director of a Star Trek film, which is exciting, and she is just brimming with ideas and enthusiasm. I can't wait to work with her.The actor - who plays Scotty - was also asked whether he knew about possible production dates, to which he had this to say:
As far as I know, we're sort of in soft prep at the moment. I would imagine next year at some point. Hopefully early next year.It's believed that the story of the new movie will revolve around Chris Hemsworth's George Kirk and a reunion with his son James (Chris Pine). Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, but it seems likely - given the franchise's history - that a plot like this will involve time travel of some sort. Between this, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the upcoming Men In Black reboot, Hemsworth is keeping very busy!
And it's possible that he may be joined by his MCU co-star, Danai Gurira (Okoye in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War). Deadline recently reported that Gurira has opened talks to appear in Godzilla vs. Kong and Star Trek 4 (this is according to S. J. Clarkson). Currently there are no details regarding her character.
