According to Deadline, a new Star Trek film enters warp speed at Paramount after finding its director and writers.
Matt Shakman of WandaVision is set to direct the new Star Trek film. He’ll work with JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot production company. Shakeman has been a rising star following the success of WandaVision. Hopefully, he can bring some of his creative vision to the Star Trek universe.
Both Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet will pen the script. Beer has been working with Paramount as the director of the next Pet Sematary film. She has many high-profile projects still in development and only 2018’s “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser” as a released writing credit. Robert-Dworet has been tearing it up! She wrote for Captain Marvel and Tomb Raider. She also has many more titles currently in production. This will be the first Star Trek film written by two women.
We don’t know who (if anyone) is returning for the next Star Trek. JJ Abrams’ first three Star Treks used the Original Series characters. It could be a good time to introduce the Next Generation.
