FARGO Showrunner Noah Hawley Shares Another Update On His Postponed STAR TREK Film

Legion showrunner Noah Hawley has shared another update on his planned Star Trek film, confirming that the project - which has been put on hold by Paramount - "doesn't appear to be in my immediate future."

Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley blew Marvel Comics fans away with Legion, so it's easy enough to see why there was so much excitement when Paramount Pictures hired him to direct a Star Trek film.

While the franchise is finding a huge amount of success on television, the studio made the decision to go back to the drawing board with its big screen plans, putting each potential project on hold (including a Star Trek 4 which was expected to star Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth). 

It's also been reported that Hawley's Star Trek was going to revolve around a pandemic storyline, so it's no wonder Paramount Pictures aren't sure whether to move forward with his vision quite yet. The filmmaker, meanwhile, doesn't currently believe the film is "in my immediate future."

"I think when [new Paramount Pictures president Emma Watts] came in, she took a look at the franchise and wanted to go in a different direction with it," Hawley tells Deadline. "But you know, life is long, we were very close to production but in this business that doesn’t mean much. You got to get out of the gate to be in the race if you know what I mean."

This isn't the first blockbuster Hawley has lost due to a change in leadership, because he was also set to write and direct a Doctor Doom feature before Fox was acquired by Disney.
