Star Trek is continuing to live long and prosper.

Indeed, the upcoming Star Trek 4 will start filming next year.

According to Geek Tyrant, the Trek sequel is aiming to go into production in early 2019. S.J. Clarkson will direct the film, thus making her the first female director to helm a Trek movie.

As Joey Paur reports, the film will feature both a female hero and a new female villain. Reportedly, a Walking Dead alumni is in the running for one of these roles. The Hashtag Show reveals actress Danai Guira is a top contender, but it’s unclear as to which part.

Star Trek: Beyond


Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Zoe Saldana, and Simon Pegg will return for the film. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his role as Kirk’s late father, George Samuel Kirk. The lone exception is Anton Yelchin, whose death took place before the release of Star Trek Beyond. How the sequel will deal with Pavel Chekov is unknown.

From what we know, the film’s plot will bridge the Original Series‘ timeline and the alternate reality. Through time travel, James Kirk and his crew will interact with George. Whether this will affect events going forward remains to be seen.

Then there’s the Star Trek film Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams are working on. Who knows what’s going on with that one? Either way, the franchise has a long prosperous future ahead.
