‘Star Trek 4’ will be directed by S.J. Clarkson


The next ‘Star Trek’ movie will be directed by S. J. Clarkson, the first woman to direct a ‘Trek’ film since Star Trek: The Motion Picture launched the movie franchise in 1979. The news comes from a Variety exclusive published today,

Not known for her film directing, Clarkson has a plenty of TV experience including directing episodes Life on Mars, Jessica Jones, Love, Nina and other series. Considering ‘Star Trek’ started as a TV series, it may seem fitting that a television director takes the helm.

Paramount has been quiet about the plot and actors involved in “Star Trek 4,” but the studio revealed at CinemaCon Las Vegas that Chris Hemsworth and Zachary Quinto will return as George Kirk (the father of James Kirk) and Commander Spock, respectively. Chris Pine and John Cho are also listed on IMDB as Captain James Kirk and helmsman Hikaru Sulu.

As expected, J.J. Abrams will produce “Star Trek 4” along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens-producer Bryan Burk and five others listed on IMDB.

Trek fans may wonder if “Star Trek 4” will follow the vein of the reboot of the franchise films started in 2009 by Abram’s Star Trek, or, influenced by the very progressive new series Star Trek: Discovery streaming exclusively on CBS All Access.

Either way, we’ll be anxiously awaiting the sequel to Star Trek Beyond (2016) and how the writers deal with the loss of Anton Yelchin (Chekov) who was accidentally killed by his rolling Jeep Grand Cherokee only weeks before the release of the film.
