Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth Are Causing Star Trek 4 Problems

Star Trek 4 May Lose Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth

Star Trek 4 May Lose Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth

It appears Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth may not star in the upcoming Star Trek film after talks with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media have reportedly fallen through.

But as Hemsworth and Pine's original deal to return was made BEFORE Star Trek Beyond's release, Paramount are seemingly re-crunching the numbers to account for a franchise that has suddenly become $100 million more worrisome than it was before. That's the question Paramount Pictures is now facing as the actor has walked away from negotiations for the sequel.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, both Pine and Hemsworth felt the studio wasn't paying either of them appropriately.

Chris Pine has always been expected to reprise his role as Captain James T. Kirk, a character originated by William Shatner.

It's understandable that Pine and Hemsworth, both of whom are attached to huge DC and Marvel films, are fighting for an appropriate pay. Star Trek 4 will make history as the first-ever installment in the longstanding franchise to be directed by a woman.

Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, and John Cho are all reportedly expected to return, and I'm sure there's an awesome story to be told with Uhura, Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, and Sulu. After all, while Star Trek is a well-loved property, the theatrical reboot has failed to take off since its inception, with the last film, Star Trek Beyond, having only pulled in a measly $343 million worldwide on a massive $185 million production budget. The bad news is that both Pine and Hemsworth may be out of the film. Hemsworth was previously attacked to Star Trek 4 as reported way back in 2016, but at the time, Paramount was under a different regime headed by Brad Grey.

Pine signed for Star Trek 4 at the same time he signed for Star Trek Beyond.

J.J. Abrams' 2009 franchise restarter Star Trek turned in $386 million, while 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness is the top earner so far, with $467 million.

Where would you like to see the Star Trek film franchise go from here?

Of course, this puts Paramount in an awkward situation.
