Last weeks Cinemacon has made plenty of headlines for many science fiction franchises. One heavy contributor in recent years to the genre that was present was Paramount Pictures, who in addition to promoting the new Terminator movie, also had some interesting Star Trek news. Despite Star Trek: Beyond's somewhat poor critical reception, the recently released TV serial Star Trek: Discovery has secured a second season (which is currently in production) after garnering overwhelmingly positive reviews and contributing heavily towards subscriptions to CBS' All Access streaming service. With Star Trek once again proving successful in the home market, it is no surprise that Paramount is keen to revitalize the franchises big screen presence, with not one but two Star Trek movies announced to be in development.

The first movie will likely be a direct sequel to Star Trek Beyond, with most of the cast reprising their roles as the crew of the USS Enterprise, Sadly, as fans will painfully know Anton Yelchin (Fright Night, Terminator Salvation, Odd Thomas) will not be able to reprise his role as Ensign Chekov due to his untimely passing in 2016, however it has been confirmed that Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as James T. Kirk's father George. British director S. J. Clarkson (pictured above) has also been confirmed to helm the fourth installment in the Star Trek series of movie reboots based on a script written by Patrick McKay and J. D. Payne.

The second movie confirmed to be in development will be based on a pitch given to J. J. Abrams by veteran director Quentin Tarantino (pictured above), who is also to direct the movie. Tarantino's idea for the movie has been written for the screen by Mark L. Smith (likely with much input from Tarantino himself). While some have been speculating that Tarantino's involvement may result in Star Treks first officially R-rated movie, we here at Scified believe that Tarantino has likely proposed a movie similar to Pulp Fiction, in which the narrative of the movies is not in chronological order, requiring the audience to decode the movie after repeated viewings.
