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 RingsJudge 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.

  • Loved the shows though waiting on all episodes of the new series. Not a fan at all of these new movies. It’s too action packed with forced humour and not nearly cerebral enough for Star Trek for me.

    But Urban was on the money as Bones

    There will absolutely be another Star Trek film. If Nemesis’ $43 million couldn’t kill the franchise, nothing will.

    I think they should consider a new Star Trek movie series altogether. New characters splitting infinitives in new locations.

    I certainly hope there will be. I loved these 3 films so far. Truly it will be different
    without Anton, but you recast and move on. It’s a job. They’re professionals.

      Why recast. The crew is overloaded with too many people trying to find something significant to do. Write him out as getting a promotion and move on. It’s a new timeline anyway.

    JJ was supposed to be directing Star Trek 4. Of course, now he’s pushed Star Trek aside (again, as he did with Beyond), to direct Star Wars 9. From the same man who said he didn’t even like Star Trek. Lovely.

    I hope so, because watching ST Discovery….. I want something bright and colorful instead.

  • Kindofabigdeal

    I wouldn’t mind a new Trek movie that goes for something new and different. Maybe like how DS9 was in a remote location we can do a movie about an outpost that faces something truly weird millions of light years away from Earth.

    Why was half the article Seth’s opinion on Star Trek? Get over yourself, dude


    Star Trek belongs on TV. Put all the resources into that.

    It has ended on a good note with Beyond. Discovery now carries the torch with super mobile athletic Klingons. What a shame. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e599d0fb771abae7e1805874d93d5d6518c43eb357c38b014971f39879fc2de4.jpg
