Is "Star Trek 4" going to get made? Not any time soon.
According to Deadline, director S.J. Clarkson has opted to direct and executive produce HBO’s "Game of Thrones" prequel pilot instead. She was the first female director hired to helm a film in the "Trek" franchise, but now the project has been "shelved."
This comes after Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth reportedly walked away from the film after failed contract negotiations.
Back in September, Pine said he's still interested in returning as Captain Kirk, but doesn't seem to have much more of an idea what's going on than we do: "I don't know. I mean, I'd love to be involved, and we'll see what happens. I'll await the phone call. Until then, I look forward to it," he told Variety.
At least we still have "Star Trek Discovery" (now with young Spock!) and announced (and potential) projects with Patrick Stewart and Michelle Yeoh.
