Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth Are Causing Star Trek 4 Problems

12 August 2018

Both Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth seems to have quit Star Trek 4.

Obviously, if the two sides are unable to resolve the conflicts, the future of the Star Trek film franchise would look massively different.

Two years ago, Paramount Pictures revealed that Star Trek 4 would be a time travel adventure that somehow reunited Chris Pine's Captain James T. Kirk with George Kirk, as portrayed by Chris Hemsworth in the opening minutes of the first Star Trek reboot film.

Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, and John Cho are all reportedly expected to return, and I'm sure there's an fantastic story to be told with Uhura, Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, and Sulu. Pine though has been the leading man of the Star Trek films since 2009's Star Trek. Star Trek 3 only grossed $343 million on a $190 million budget. Those execs are now saying, in light of the tepid performance of Star Trek Beyond, they need to dial back the budget on this film and would like to pay the actors less than they were initially promised or usually get. There is also the possibility that Pine and Hemsworth will return to the negotiating table if circumstances change.

The report also stated that Atletico Madrid and Valencia are also interested in signing Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea this summer. But the deal may raise eyebrows from some Chelsea fans, given the forward options left at the club after Batshuayi's departure.

Karl Urban, Pine's co-star who plays Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the Kelvin timeline Star Trek films, responded to Spiner, taking the overly-literal approach. That mediocre performer would be Star Trek Beyond, which sources say Paramount actually lost money on. That was higher than the $228 million domestic for Star Trek Into Darkness. The actor signed for Star Trek 4 even before he shot Star Trek Beyond in 2015. The 2009 movie made only $385 million worldwide, but it made $257 million from domestic receipts.

Yes, re-casting one Kirk is possible. but re-casting BOTH actors, would seem hard for the audience to accept when the movie relies so much on them buying the father-son reunion dynamic. Star Trek 4 will make history as the first-ever installment in the longstanding franchise to be directed by a woman.

Paramount and Skydance insiders told THR that the film "remains a priority development and is not being put on hold".
