Star Trek has been thriving with multiple shows out on television right now, but a lot of fans are still wondering if we’ll ever get an update on the Kelvin Timeline on the big screen. We’ve had multiple reports of the project pushing forward and stopping, and now Zachary Quinto (Spock) has given fans an update.
As per SFFGazette, Quinto said in a recent convention appearance, “I think there’s a lot of other stuff, creative things. It’s complicated… The fact that anything good gets made is kind of a miracle. I think it’s about different people having different agendas and ideas about what it will be.”
We don’t know exactly what kind of movie is coming for the next Trek film, but rumors have been going around from a time travel episode with a returning Chris Hemsworth (as George Kirk) to a Trek film being directed by none other than Quentin Tarantino.
The last Trek movie to release in cinemas was Star Trek Beyond back in 2016, and while it was a solid movie, the film was marketed in an odd way that tried to appeal to a more action-oriented direction, what with Justin Lin (Fast and Furious) at the helm and the teaser using Sabotage from the Beastie Boys.
Anyone who did see the film had nothing but sparkling reviews for it, even saying that it’s the best Trek film to come out of the Kelvin Timeline.
If anything, Quinto does try to be optimistic whatever the fate of the Trek movies will be. He says, “I don’t know if and when it will happen. And if coalesces again, and we come back, and we’re able to do it, wonderful. If not, we had a great run.”
No release date has been announced for Star Trek 4.
