5 Mar – A new Star Trek movie is set to be produced by JJ Abrams' studio Bad Robot, to be penned by writer and producer Kalinda Vazquez.
Vazquez, who is already a familiar face in the Star Trek community having written and co-produced "Star Trek: Discovery", will be reviving the franchise on the big screen, nearly five years following the last movie, the 2016's "Star Trek Beyond".
She was also recently tapped to collaborate with George R.R. Martin for the HBO series, "Roadmarks".
It is noted that there have been several Star Trek projects that had been in development - including one hatched by Abrams and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino - though all of them are currently on hold.
