Recently, rumors surfaced that Paramount was postponing all work on Star Trek 4 indefinitely and plans to focus on its projects for the television franchise. ScreenRant approached the studio with a question about the veracity of the rumors and received an official denial:
This news is not true, various projects in the Star Trek world are currently in development.
We Got This Covered advises its readers to pay attention to the phrase “various projects”. The authors of the portal suggest that we are talking not only about the film “Star Trek 4”, written and directed by Noah Hawley, but also about the unnamed project of Quentin Tarantino. The director began working on an R-rated movie a few years ago, which he described as a classic gangster movie set in outer space.
Paramount Studios needs to confront its competitors successfully developing superhero franchises. And the studio has only one franchise, all of whose films have been commercially successful. In this situation, We Got This Covered suggests that Tarantino’s film has a great chance of appearing on the screens.
