After a number of false starts, scripts, and questions around the next Star Trek film, we at least know who will be directing (finally!). Matt Shakman, best known for directing all nine episodes of Disney+/Marvel’s WandaVision, will helm the upcoming untitled installment, per Deadline. The current script has been written by Lindsey Beer (the upcoming Pet Semetary project) and Geneva Robertson (Captain Marvel) and production on the Paramount/Bad Robot picture is expected to begin next spring. No word yet on whether any of the cast from the first three Star Trek films under J.J. Abrams’ guidance will return.
