Matt Shakman, who was recently nominated for an Emmy for his work directing WandaVision, is beaming into the Star Trek universe. He'll be directing the upcoming Untitled Star Trek Project for Paramount Pictures, with a script written by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson. J.J. Abrams, who helmed both Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness and produced Star Trek Beyond, will be returning as a producer.
This will be the first new Star Trek film since the last installment in the Kelvin-verse series, Star Trek Beyond, director Justin Lin's 2016 installment. As of now, there is no official information concerning whether or not we'll be exploring more of the Kelvin-verse, perhaps pick up from where Star Trek: Nemesis left off with The Next Generation films, or if the film will follow a new plot entirely through the Prime timeline.
Paramount Studios previously announced that they will be releasing the untitled Star Trek Universe movie on June 9, 2023. As of now, the film is untitled.
