Star Trek loses Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth in negotiations talks

Star Trek 4 also marks the first time the franchise will have a female director at the helm with S. J. Clarkson.

Pine was due to reprise his role as Captain James T. Kirk, with Hemsworth returning to his role as Kirk's father George Kirk, a part he played in the 2009 reboot.

But it seems like Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth may be walking away from the fourth Star Trek sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. After all, the actor's role in the first film was short lived and he's never officially been confirmed for the project - despite being rumored to return since 2016 when Brad Grey was still in charge of Paramount Studios.

So does this mean there will be no Star Trek 4 where Kirk meets his dead dad?

With "budget cutting" this late in the game, one wonders how much faith Paramount really has in a fourth Star Trek adventure BUT, there may yet be hope for the immediate future of the series. It is hard to imagine recasting Kirk now without rebooting the franchise again, but then it's even harder to imagine a Star Trek movie without Captain Kirk.

Want up-to-the-minute entertainment news and features? Pine though has been the leading man of the Star Trek films since 2009's Star Trek.

Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, and John Cho are all reportedly expected to return, and I'm sure there's an wonderful story to be told with Uhura, Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, and Sulu. According to THR's sources, the duo insists they have deals in place but it's the studio that's trying to lower those numbers, citing Star Trek Beyond's less-than-expected box office return.

Are you looking forward to Star Trek 4?

Tarantino is a long-time Trek fan - don't forget the opening screen for "Kill Bill" told of the old Klingon proverb that says revenge is a dish best served cold - and in an interview with Nerdist he said that he considers the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" one of the best "Star Trek" episodes ever written.

Insiders for Paramount and Skydance are reportedly saying the Bad Robot co-production is a "priority" for the studio and won't be put on hold.
