Paramount’s next Star Trek film has found its helmer in none other than Matt Shakman.
Director Matt Shakman is going from one epic franchise to another.
According to Deadline, Matt Shakman, who most recently served as director on all nine episodes of Disney+ and Marvel’s WandaVision, has officially signed on to serve as director on the next Star Trek film.
Produced by Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, the forthcoming Star Trek film is still without a title. Similarly, plot details for the sci-fi flick are being kept firmly under wraps.
Others involved behind the scenes include Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, both of whom have teamed to pen the script together.
Shakman’s isn’t the only Star Trek movie in the works over at Paramount.
Also in development at the studio is another film for the franchise set to be penned by Star Trek: Discovery vet Kalinda Vasquez.
Currently, there’s no word on when either film will hit theaters, or which will premiere first.
The last movie in the beloved sci-fi franchise hit the big screen back in 2016.
Titled Star Trek Beyond, it starred Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock, respectively. The Justin Lin helmed flick found the crew of the USS Enterprise exploring the furthest reaches of uncharted space, and encountering a ruthless enemy who put them, and the Federation to the test.
