SJ Clarkson To Become First Female Director To Helm 'Star Trek' Film

That's good news for me as I really like Abrams' first reboot film and adore Star Trek Beyond.

That's because Paramount chairman-CEO Jim Gianopulos broke the big news on Wednesday at CinemaCon that the studio has not one but two new Star Trek movies in the works, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Since the third of the rebooted "Star Trek" movies recouped nearly $350 million globally, Paramount's high-profile flops have included "Ben-Hur", "mother!" and Matt Damon vehicles "Suburbicon" and "Downsizing".

Hiring women directors has become an actionable priority for studios in recent months, and results are starting to be seen as more female filmmakers are getting hired for franchise projects.

Apple Releases Minor iOS 11.3.1 Update for iPhone and iPad
In addition, Apple has also released a new security update to macOS 10.13.4 that was rolled out last month. Interestingly, Apple's patch notes specify that the release "improves the security" of iOS devices.

Clarkson is best known for her work on the TV scene with shows such as "Dexter", "Bates Motel", "Orange is the New Black", and "Jessica Jones".

One potential stumbling block in a future Star Trek film with the current movie cast is that all of the principal actors are no longer under contract with the studio.

It looks like Star Trek is about to boldly go in a brand-new direction.

It helps that Tarantino is particularly interested in Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise", which he described as one of "the great space stories", able to "bear a two-hour treatment". Quentin is off doing another movie. This script has been in development now for a few years.

"I'm incredibly confident that we have the right team, culture, and attitude in place to take Paramount to new heights", he said. "I don't know what's going to happen".

A major intervention arrived, in the form of Quentin Tarantino, who pitched a Star Trek movie idea to J.J. Abrams.

It's not clear if the Pegg and Jung script Quinto mentions is for Star Trek 4, or yet another possible Trek sequel.

Amazon just announced a new version of the Echo Dot
