Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley has signed on to write and direct the next Star Trek film for Paramount Pictures.
The last Star Trek movie that was being developed by director S.J. Clarkson ended up being shelved after Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth dropped out of the project after the studio tried to change the deal on them. According to Variety, though, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, and Zoe Saldana are expected to all return to the U.S.S. Enterprise for the new adventure.
To my (mild) embarrassment, I have not yet seen STAR TREK: BEYOND. I am told that it was not wretched, though. Depending on how you feel about the reboot, that may not be entirely reassuring. Still, I like all those actors in all of those roles. I should probably catch up, in my copious free time.
