Paramount Pictures has officially announced that a fourth Star Trek film is coming.
In the next installment, Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father.
Yes, that means that Chris Hemsworth is returning to the role of George Kirk, a part he has not played since 2009's Star Trek - the film that kicked off the new series of Trek flicks.
The studio has yet to name a director for the untitled film, however, the remaining cast is expected to return with the exception of Anton Yelchin, who passed away last month and had played Chekov in the last three Star Trek movies.
J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will write the screenplay. J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber will produce through Bad Robot Productions. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance will executive produce.
The next film in the franchise, Star Trek Beyond, opens July 22nd.
