So, they got Chris Pine back for STAR TREK?

Huh.

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.

So, we’re really maybe doing a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek?

So it would appear. And since he’s taking his ‘ten movies and out’ thing, Star Trek would be his last one:

[Quentin] Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is his ninth directorial effort, which means it will be his penultimate effort should he stick to this 10-film plan before retirement. The director’s GQ interview had many fans wondering how Tarantino will choose to end his directorial career and asking whether or not his much-discussed “Star Trek” movie would be his final filmmaking project. Tarantino successfully pitched an R-rated “Star Trek” to producer J.J. Abrams and Paramount and has written a script. The studio has yet to officially greenlight the project, but if they do and if Tarantino decides to direct that will probably be his last movie.

Saw the new ‘Picard’ trailer a few times.

Figured out what bugged me about it.

Thor, Steve Trevor walk out of Star Trek (rev. 2) 4 . For now.

Lemme translate that a little: Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pine are both currently abandoning talks with Paramount over the fourth installment of the Star Trek reboot. Hemsworth is, of course, currently Thor in the MCU; and Pine plays Wonder Woman’s love interest somehow-in-the-sequel Steve Trevor in the DCEU.  Paramount would prefer not to pay out accordingly, particularly since Star Trek Reboot 3 didn’t do so hot.  To be honest? I didn’t see it, so I don’t know whether or not it was any good. Although the fact that I didn’t see it is maybe diagnostic, right there. (more…)

Are you ready for a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek?

Me neither.

Director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp FictionThe Hateful Eight) has an idea for a new Star Trek movie and J.J. Abrams (Star Trek BeyondStar Wars: The Force Awakens) is putting together a writers room for the project, according to Deadline. Sources say that Tarantino told his idea to Abrams, and writers will be gathered to work on the idea. If it comes to fruition, Tarantino could direct with Abrams producing at Paramount. There is currently no confirmation on the Star Trek movie idea from Paramount or from Tarantino.

Michelle Yeoh in the new Star Trek [Insert Gerund Animal, Adjective Beast pun here].

Coming Soon is shamelessly speculating that Michelle Yeoh will be the lead, but I think that’s just the plaintive yearning for a Star Trek series that would regularly have epic sword battles in free fall and telepathic Vulcan monks harnessing the power of their Space Chi talking.  And let that yearning talk.  I’d watch a show like that, after all.  But it’s probably far too awesome a concept for network television.  Anyway, all we know is that Michelle Yeoh will be in the show.  It might just be for a guest appearance.

Still.  Imagine the fight scenes.  Heck: imagine the monologues.

The link to a hysterical Star Trek “What The HELL, Humans?” piece.

And I’m not underselling here, I think. This very well may be the funniest thing that you read all day.  I certainly thought that it was.
