With Star Wars all over the news cycle, it is nice to have a bit of news about another franchise that takes place out in the cosmos, Star Trek. While speaking with Screen Crush, actor Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Judge Dredd) spoke about the possibility of a fourth Star Trek film:
“You know as much as I do, my friend. [laughs] Listen, we’d all love to make another Star Trek movie. That’s absolutely certain. But if we don’t get that opportunity then I’m really happy to have ended on such a good note. We had such a wonderful time shooting Star Trek Beyond. It was an amazing experience — and we’re all still grieving over the fact that it was the last time that we got to shoot with Anton [Yelchin]. We’re all like a family. It won’t be the same without him.”
From what Urban says, it sounds like there are no plans for another Star Trek film — at least not that he’s heard. The last film, Star Trek Beyond, the only of the three to not be directed by J.J Abrams, pulled the lowest of all three films at the box office with $343 million, however that is still nearly double its budget. While I have never been what I would consider a Trekkie, I was never much into the shows, but the reboot of the franchise on the big screen did catch my eye. I have enjoyed all of the recent Star Trek films, the first two more so than the last, I wouldn’t mind seeing a fourth.
If you’ll recall, there were plans for another film, with Chris Hemsworth set to return as Kirk’s father in some time bending narrative. It certainly would have been interesting, but based on that disappointing box office haul, who knows if it’ll happen.
