Abrams rebooted the franchise with 2009’s Star Trek and also helmed 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, before pivoting to Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He remains a producer on the Star Trek franchise even as he readies 2019’s Star Wars: Episode IX. Paramount previously stated it was developing a fourth Star Trek film to star Chris Hemsworth as Captain Kirk’s (Chris Pine) father, but no director has been attached and it’s unclear where this Tarantino development leaves the project. The latest installment, Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond (2016), was well-liked by critics but earned just $343.4 million worldwide, the lowest in the rebooted universe.

 

The studio had no comment.
