Of course, this isn't the only Star Trek script in development.

Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos confirmed during CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week that the studio is developing a pair of new Star Trek films.

AfDB calls for domestic financing to fight malaria
Chilufya said government's malaria elimination strategy has an estimation of over US$ 694 million from 2017 to 2021. In 2016, there were 216 million cases of malaria , and 445 000 malaria-related deaths worldwide.


More news on which scripts are being developed as we hear it. Maybe it will be a Chris Hemsworth (Kirk's dad) tale that involves time travel and elimination of the Kelvin timeline.

Clarkson has mostly directed projects in the TV world, including episodes of "Dexter", "Orange Is The New Black", "Jessica Jones" and "The Defenders". Many box office watchers believe confusion over how Rogue One: A Star Wars Story related to the characters and events introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens may have hurt its box office (that said, it still cleared a billion dollars). So I don't know. Paramount Pictures is also developing a film with the director along with J.J.
