The cinema world will soon have the opportunity to feast upon the theatrical release of Star Trek Beyond. Director Justin Lin has managed to reboot the iconic science-fiction television series and turn it into a massive franchise rivaling that of major pictures today. While older audiences may remember the show and the old films, today’s audiences only know of its existence through Lin’s movies, and that fact is opening new doors for the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
Following the recent theater release of Beyond, it has been announced that a fourth film, currently titled Star Trek 4, has been officially revealed and will come to world theaters in the near future, reports Hitfix.
The announcement came straight from Paramount Pictures, who also revealed Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as George Kirk, the lost father of James T. Kirk, portrayed by Chris Pine.
The upcoming fourth film is being penned by none other than J.D Payne and Patrick McKay, while J.J Abrams and Lindsey Weber will return as producers through their company Bad Robot.
Die-hard fans will find their minds being blown when the late Captain Kirk meets his infant son as an adult in the upcoming fourth film. Back in 2009, audiences witnessed in shock as Captain George Kirk met a very untimely and momentous demise. The timeline has been altered, however, and the deceased legend will make a return once more to the big-screen.
Star Trek Beyond will open in theaters on July 22, 2016.
