More Star Trek rumors have hit the airwaves in the last few weeks. This one sounds legit, as it's been reported by Variety, Hollywood Reporter, Daily Star Trek News, SyFy.com and more.
According to a deadline.com EXCLUSIVE: "After orchestrating the Marvel/Disney+ series WandaVision to a 23-Emmy-nomination haul, Matt Shakman has made a deal to direct the next untitled Star Trek film for Paramount and Bad Robot’s JJ Abrams. Deadline hears the film will now move at warp speed and begin production next spring. They have a script by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. This is significant in that it is the first Star Trek film to be written by female screenwriters."
The film's initial release date is reportedly June 9, 2023.
