Star Trek Kirk

While he hasn’t heard anything about it happening, Chris Pine says he’d be more than happy to play Captain Kirk in another Star Trek film. Pine, who played the iconic role in Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond, spoke with J. Claude Deering on his Things Are Going Great For Me podcast and was asked about the possibility of playing the role in a new film.

“I haven’t heard anything,” Pine said (per JoBlo). “I mean, I get asked these questions all the time. I’m like the last person to find anything out. So, I’ve heard, what have I heard? Tarantino is going to do one. And then, who is it? Noah Hawley was going to do something else, and then that fell through. And then he’s going to do something with the Discovery, the new Alex Kurtzman-led cast. So, I really don’t know. I know that Paramount is coming out of having restructured a bit and kind of a major corporate restructuring. So hopefully, when all that dust settles, something concrete will come out of it, and we’ll get to work. I’d love to do it.”

While the franchise is doing great on TV between Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard as well as the animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks and the upcoming Strange New Worlds and Section 31, it has stalled out on the big screen. A fourth film in the J.J. Abrams-started reboot series stalled out after Beyond disappointed at the box office, and while there have been other films that have development like Quentin Tarantino’s R-rated entry and Noah Hawley’s planned sequel, neither are moving forward at this time.
