What do you think the two Star Trek movies will be?

Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos opened the studio's segment at the annual CinemaCon film industry convention in Las Vegas with the news, praising director John Krasinski, who stars in the monster invasion thriller opposite real-life wife Emily Blunt. However, this announcement was made before the release of Star Trek Beyond, and there has been little news about the project since.

A major intervention arrived, in the form of Quentin Tarantino, who pitched a Star Trek movie idea to J.J. Abrams. "And I doubt, I don't think he could get around to directing a Star Trek in two-three years". Variety reports the film will involve a time-travel story that introduces Kirk (Chris Pine) to his father.

Gianopulos announced a string of sequels in partnership with Skydance Media, including a new "Terminator" with Linda Hamilton from the original movie back on board with Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Top Gun: Maverick" with Tom Cruise - and two new "Star Trek" films. Sources now say the film is being written and would not debut until after Star Trek 4.

More recently, it was reported that Tarantino was working with series producer JJ Abrams on a new Star Trek movie. That is being scripted by The Revenant scribe Mark L. Smith.

The prevailing presumption underlying the several possible Star Trek scripts was that Paramount was pursuing a model similar to what Warner Bros. did with Wonder Woman: developing multiple scripts, then picking a favorite. And if Paramount wanted to start releasing Star Trek films closer together - like Disney is doing with Marvel and Star Wars films - the studio would likely have to give the second Star Trek film in development a green light before the next one hit theaters. "So I don't know what is going to happen", said Zachary.
