Urban Offers “Star Trek 4” Film Update

Those involved in the “Star Trek” film franchise are seemingly as in the dark as the rest of us in regards to when a fourth entry in the rebooted series might come to screens.

Karl Urban, who plays Dr. ‘Bones’ McCoy, recenty confirmed to Screen Crush during “Thor: Ragnarok” promotion that he and many of the other cast would love to do another film, but he’s uncertain if it’s happening.

“Star Trek Beyond” opened last year to $343 million worldwide, the lowest gross of the rebooted franchise despite stronger reviews than the previous entry “Star Trek Into Darkness”.

At the time of the film’s release a script was apparently nearly done and was to feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the father of Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk. Now, over a year on, Urban says he’s not sure what will happen:

“You know as much as I do, my friend. Listen, we’d all love to make another Star Trek movie. That’s absolutely certain. But if we don’t get that opportunity then I’m really happy to have ended on such a good note. We had such a wonderful time shooting Star Trek Beyond. It was an amazing experience – and we’re all still grieving over the fact that it was the last time that we got to shoot with Anton [Yelchin]. We’re all like a family. It won’t be the same without him.”

All the “Star Trek” talk these days is about the currently airing “Star Trek Discovery” on Netflix which is now looking likely to score a second season.
