4th Star Trek movie officially announced

Paramount has officially announced the 4th Star Trek movie, Chris Hemsworth will return as George Kirk, James T Kirk's father from the 1st movie.
http://deadline.com/2016/07/star-tre...ne-1201787943/

Quote:
Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Bad Robot are reaming for a fourth installment of their Star Trek franchise, with Chris Pine returning and the rest of the cast of the rebooted pics also expected to return. The news comes as Star Trek Beyond, the third film, hits theaters Friday.

The plot for the new pic: Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father. Chris Hemsworth, who appeared in the 2009 reboot Star Trek, will return to play George Kirk.

J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will write the screenplay. J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber will produce through Bad Robot. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance will executive produce.

No release date or director set yet for this. Justin Lin is helming Star Trek Beyond, which was penned by Doug Jung and Simon Pegg.

Sounds like another Star Trek IV that is a time travel story.

That was my first reaction. God forbid JJ actually do a movie that wasn't connected to another movie that came before it.

Second movie is a Khan story, fourth movie is a time travel story (where are the whales?)...

You heard it here first, kids: sixth "NuTrek" movie will be about those dastardly Klingons. It'll totally be a new original story where Kirk and Uhura are framed for assassinating a Klingon chancellor at peace talks after the Klingon moon is destroyed.

Wouldn't it be nice if the time travel prevented Vulcan's destruction?

You mean Beyond? It hasn't come out yet.

I was thinking that this was more along the lines of "Star Trek Generations", but either way it's ridiculous how Abrams acts like you can't do anything interesting with Trek that hasn't been done before. The sky's the limit with these characters and this world and he just rips off the good movies from thirty years ago.

Again, just means they've hired some people to do a script. If "Beyond" is a beyond expected bomb, you can bet this will just quietly go away.

And... what the hell is this? Kirk going back to hang with his dad? Is he really still asking "Who am I" 4 movies into things? Only way this would be remotely interesting to me is if it ends with Kirk saving his dad's life, the Kelvin, and restoring the timeline. And then vanishing. I mean, it wasn't NuKirk's fault the timeline got screwed up and he was made into a sh*tty character... but at least he can be remembered as the guy that fixed it. That's something, at least.

Obviously Yelchin doesn't "own" the character but given the probably low shelf life of the current movieverse, I'd hope they'd just promote the character off the ship or something between films. Like, "Oh cool, this version of Chekov actually made it."

I hope they just let his character go... say he went off on his own adventures or something. Then again, they didn't bat an eye about CGIing Phillip Seymour Hoffman into the last Hunger Games movie, or Marlon Brando in Superman Returns, so they'll probably not let him rest in peace either.

Regarding Chekov, they don't plan on recasting the character, so they can just make it like he reassigned to another ship.

I look forward to an original character taking his place. That could be very interesting.

I would like to see characters from the Star Trek animated series appear in the 4th one.

The animated series sucked. But I suppose the character designs could be reused...

Watch them put a young boy Jean-Luc Picard in one of these films. It would be funny if they used the guy playing young Prof. Xavier in the latest X-men films to also play a young Picard in these reboots.

At least they're going out of their way to be original with these new films. Khan in the second one. Destroy the Enterprise in the third. Time travel in the fourth.

Wasn't the original contract for the actors 3 movies? So if they make this 4th one I'm betting its another 3 movie contract.

We'll probably get 6 movies out of this rebooted universe. Can't wait to see Kirk and Spock try to save the whales.

I would love to see M'Ress in the 4th movie.

She's a Caitian who served in the Enterprise as a relief communications officer

Yeah, I'll bet you would, Lars.

I missed that one. I wonder if anyone will go looking for Spock in "Beyond?"

"Where's Spock, Jim?"
"I dunno, Bones... we'd better SEARCH for him."
