STAR TREK 4 Canceled

In addition to Star Trek 4, Paramount has also been developing a Trek movie based upon an idea by Quentin Tarantino, who is now occupied with his latest film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood ahead of its release in July.

A new report from Deadline reveals the film's director SJ Clarkson has left "Star Trek" to direct and executive produce HBO's impending "Game of Thrones" prequel pilot.

Then came the casting woes, with Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth balking at new deals which would have had them take pay cuts.

It seems there's a good reason for that, too, as we're hearing today that the project has been shelved indefinitely.

The eating plan features a wide variety of options, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, poultry, and fish. News and World Report evaluated 41 different diets on factors like weight loss and diet's effectiveness against diseases.

According to Deadline "Clarkson was recruited by HBO for GOT after she recently became available". Pine was in line to return once again as James Kirk, with Hemsworth was slated to reprise his brief cameo from the first film as Kirk's father for a major role in the latest outing. While it's not unusual for announcements of this nature to be made quickly after the release of an entry in a franchise it was a little odd due to the struggles Star Trek: Beyond had at the box office.

The series has received mix reviews from fans, and some will certainly celebrate the potential end of this particular timeline, however as the sole vehicle for bringing Star Trek to the big screen over the past ten years it has been an important part of Star Trek either way you lean.

Simon Pegg said in a July interview with The Edmonton Journal that Tarantino's Star Trek movie is "five or six years" away from happening, since Tarantino is now making Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is slated for release on July 26, 2019.
