Fargo’s Noah Hawley Remembers Why His Star Trek Film Bought Scrapped, And I am So Upset Paramount Did This

Whereas the TV facet of the Star Trek franchise has been thriving for over half a decade now because of the varied reveals out there to stream with a Paramount+ subscription, the identical can’t be identical for the movie facet. The final Star Trek film, Star Trek Past, got here out in 2016, and Star Trek 4 stays caught in improvement hell. At one level, Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley was tapped to direct a Star Trek film, and now that he’s opened up about how the undertaking obtained scrapped, I’m disenchanted that Paramount Footage took this plan of action.

Hawley has prior expertise from leaving his stamp on main franchise from the TV present Legion, which delved into stranger corners of the X-Males property. He’s now within the midst of placing collectively an Alien collection, which is able to stream to Hulu subscribers, and he famous how when FX approached him for the job, he was requested to do his model of Alien, not simply one thing commonplace, cookie cutter, and so on. This led to him recalling how his Star Trek film was put aside, saying to THR:

What I discovered with Star Trek was I obtained onto the runway after which there was a managerial changeover. Looking back, it’s not that they killed the film. It’s that I obtained so far as I did with an entirely authentic thought, till somebody stated, ‘Properly, wait a minute, what are we even doing with this invaluable IP? Simply giving it to him to make up a narrative? That’s not how company filmmaking works.’ So, if the decision got here in to do a giant franchise movie once more, it must include a way of, ‘We would like you to do your model of it.’
