CBS All Access Beams Up More 'Star Trek' Animated Shows

Future of STAR TREK Film Series In Doubt As Director S.J. Clarkson Departs

That excerpt highlights the talking point of every article (including the one on ScreenCrush) about Clarkson being brought on to make Star Trek 4; she would have been the first female director in the history of the cinematic franchise. Now?

Yesterday it was announced that S.J. Clarkson has signed on to direct and executive produce HBO's Game of Thrones spinoff pilot The Long Night. By all appearances the shelved project is Star Trek 4.

Star Trek Beyond, the most recent instalment in the series, underperformed at the box office in 2016, despite strong reviews.

Paramount Pictures has reportedly put the long-awaited sequel Star Trek 4 on the shelf, with director S.J. Clarkson moving on to HBO's Game of Thrones prequel.

It's not the first time the fourth Star Trek film has stumbled; last August, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that both Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth had departed the project after salary negotiations fell apart. Now, Deadline reports that her availability to take the gig was a result of the planned Star Trek sequel being shelved.

Paramount originally meant to shoot the fourth movie in the rebooted NuTrek universe early this year, although it had been in doubt for the past few months after Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth rejected offers to return as Captain James T. Kirk and his father George Kirk.

Meanwhile, the franchise continues on the small screen with Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access and a Jean-Luc Picard series is being developed for the streaming video on demand service.

The plans for a fourth Star Trek movie in the rebooted series have been shelved by Paramount Pictures, according to reports.
