Is there any chance for the Star Trek movie to be rebooted the fourth time? Chris Hemsworth doesn’t know for sure, but, he is staying positive.
Paramount Pictures had made the Star Trek 4 announcement in 2016 before the Star Trek Beyond had premiered. The film was to be Hemsworth’s comeback as George Kirk, the father of James Kirk. George was shown to have died at the start of the 2009 movie Star Trek when he tried to save his family and crew of USS Kelvin when it came under attack from Nero. His possible comeback in the fourth movie led to a lot of speculations and doubts.
And then Star Trek Beyond failed to do well at the box office. Paramount went mum about Star Trek 4, and now Quentin Tarantino is charting out a new Star Trek film, but, it is not known whether it would be connected with the earlier three films or not. ‘
Hemsworth revealed to IGN that he hadn’t received any updates from Paramount about Star Trek 4. He is even contemplating giving a call to producer J.J. Abrams.
“I don’t know,” Hemsworth said. “It’s a reminder to call JJ and ask the same question because I haven’t heard any updates on it either.”
Even though Hemsworth is not able to talk much about Star Trek 4’s future, he gave a slight idea of what made him come back.
“Just the fact that he had a way of reinserting the character into the world,” he says. “I can’t say too much — there’s not even a script — but I always thought, maybe, there was a possibility of him coming back in some way. I didn’t know how or what, but he was pretty enthusiastic about what they had planned.”
It gives the impression that George Kirk might play a huge role in the future of Kelvin timeline. However, that depends on whether the Kelvin timeline has any future left.
The Star Trek actor Karl Urban seems to be as much in the dark as Hemsworth is.
“You know as much as I do, my friend,” Urban said. “Listen, we’d all love to make another Star Trek movie. That’s absolutely certain. But if we don’t get that opportunity then I’m really happy to have ended on such a good note. We had such a wonderful time shooting Star Trek Beyond. It was an amazing experience — and we’re all still grieving over the fact that it was the last time that we got to shoot with Anton [Yelchin]. We’re all like a family. It won’t be the same without him.”
