They’ve been taking their time with the fourth entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie series, no doubt partly because the third film wasn’t quite the huge box office success expected. Ever since Quentin Tarantino said he’d like to write and direct it, there’s been much speculation as to how feasible this actually is and what the result would be like, but recently Simon Pegg said of Tarantino:
“I don’t think Quentin is going to direct it, because he’s got his California movie [Once Upon a Time in Hollywood] to do and then I think he’s only doing one more film after that. I doubt – I don’t think he could get around to directing a Star Trek in two-three years.”
However, the other day Pegg confirmed to ‘The Quietus’ that the series will still continue:
“I know we’re doing more. I’d love to – I love those guys. It’s, of course, difficult because we lost Anton [Yelchin] and moving forward without him still feels unimaginable”.
It seems that several scripts have been written but not one has been decided on yet – so I think we could still be waiting some time – and by then Tarantino could be free!
