During an interview on the #Today show on Apr. 21, 2017, Zachary Quinto said that there’s ‘no guarantee’ for a 4th #StarTrek film in the rebooted franchise. Asked about “Star Trek” during thew interview promoting his new independent film “Aardvark”, Zachary Quinto had this to say about “Star Trek”:
“I don’t know… I know that they are working on a script for another one and we’ll see how that all plays out, but the nice thing about that experience is that the time in between those big tentpole films allows us to go off and cultivate a lot of different creative experiences for ourselves — being back on stage, doing independent films… I’m hopeful that we’ll do another one, but there’s no guarantee.”
Doubt for the continuation of the rebooted franchise has grown after “Star Trek Beyond” missed its box office projections that Paramount had been hoping for, in spite of the studio’s official announcement last July for a fourth film in the franchise, which included the announcement that Chris Hemsworth would return as James Kirk’s father George.
