It's a great time to be a Trekkie. With so many new Star Trek television series on the horizon the news only gets better with the recent announcement of a new Star Trek film hitting the big screen in 2023.
Paramount recently released their schedule with a list of upcoming movie projects including the announcement of the first Trek film since Star Trek: Beyond. Aside from the scheduled premiere date of summer 2023, the the other interesting detail we have is Paramount's official comment on the project to Trekmovie:
“The untitled Star Trek film is a top secret project that we’re developing with J.J. Abrams producing."
Abrams helping produce the movie might mean the return of his reboot franchise that he began back in 2009. Zachary Quinto who played the role of Spock in the recent reboot Trek films also recently discussed his enthusiasm to return to the series if asked.
“We all love that experience and I’m sure if it comes back around and we’re all available, I’m sure we’d be happy to jump back on board. No pun intended. But I don’t know — that’s in other people’s hands and I know I, for one, have had sort of moved on in terms of any kind of expectations, but you never know things come back in surprising ways and it’s surprising times, and it could be fun if it happens,” Quinto recently said in an interview with PopCulture when asked about a fourth reboot Star Trek movie.
Whether the next film continues the adventures of Abram's reboot Enterprise crew remains to be seen. While we wait for more news and developments of the next film it's good to know that Quinto and the rest of the cast are just as eager as ever to return to the final frontier.
