Those who are excited about a Quinten Tarantino Star Trek movie may have to hold off on hoping it happens soon. According to Deadline, a fourth Star Trek is in the works and will now be written and directed by Noah Hawley. He recently had directed Lucy In The Sky and is the creator of Legion and is the showrunner of FX's Fargo series. He will be leading the returning Enterprise crew of Chris Pine (Kirk), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Zachary Quinto (Spock), and Karl Urban (Bones).

Originally, the fourth Star Trek movie was supposed to have Chris Hemsworth returning to the role of Kirk's father. But due to contract disputes, it appears that that particular story is now being abandoned. Chris Pine was also said to be having contract disputes too, but it sounds like those have been fixed.

It also sounds like the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek spinoff is still in the works, but nothing new has been reported on other than that.

I think that the hire was due to the success that Hawley has had with Fargo and Legion because Lucy In The Sky was by no means a success. I'm hoping he pulls off something great for this franchise because I enjoy this run of Star Trek movies enough to where I would want another one. However, I do wonder if I am in the minority because the last movie (Star Trek: Beyond) made significantly less than the first two, making it seem like audiences have lost interest. Hopefully, this won't be a case of another franchise that is on the verge of dying out like we've seen from others this past year.

There is no release date for Star Trek 4 as of now.
