Deadline said:I hear Clarkson was recruited by HBO for GOT after she recently became available. Earlier this year, Clarkson was the first female director to be tapped to direct a Star Trek movie when she was hired to helm the fourth feature in the current series. That project has since been shelved.
In my opinion you can never kill interest in Star Trek.Let's say you're correct and it gets made and released three years from now. That's 2022, which would be a six-year gap between films. What a way to kill interest in the franchise. They're really not managing it well.
This is all premature I say. Paramount will figure it out and reach deals with everyone and ST4 will get made in the next 2-3 years.
Maybe destroying the Enterprise in every film isn't the key to success?
Star Trek Beyond was beyond bad for me. Into Darkness doing Khan again was also a major flaw. 2009's Trek destroying Vulcan and the original time line? I wan't so happy about that either. Making Star Trek movies so many years apart and each with c. $180 million dollar budgets? Neither of those are good ideas. I'm ok with Star Trek dying on the big screen for now, and it seems like it was almost inevitable. I'm not sure what Chris P. and Chris H. make for a big movie these days, but it's probably c. $10 million each. Star Trek can't financially support paydays like that. I'll be maybe the only person here who agrees with Paramount on that call which meant pulling the plug for now.
