The reboot of the Star Trek universe is going all quite nicely with the third film out this Friday and is already gaining massive critical acclaim everywhere.
With Star Trek Beyond set to do huge at the box office, Paramount Pictures have wasted no time in officially announcing that a fourth film will follow and they have also confirmed who will be taking over from Simon Pegg in writing duties and given a clue about the plot.
J D Payne and Patrick McKay will write the script and its been confirmed that Chris Hemsworth will return to the role as George Kirk. Yes the guy who died right at the start of the reboot whose son Captain Kirk ended up in charge of the Enterprise.
“Chris 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”.
Interesting how this will pan out!
Its also been confirmed that due to the tragic death Anton Yelchin, the role of Chekov will not be recast!
More as we get this!
