Matt Shakman is making the jump from WandaVision to the brand new Star Trek film, it’s been revealed.

Since the 2016 release of Star Trek Beyond, the big screen adventures of the Star Trek crew have been at best in some kind of holding pattern. Paramount Pictures has looked at various ways of getting things moving again – including a high profile project involving Quentin Tarantino, that came to nothing – but with no sign of an actual greenlight.

Finally though, the studio announced a release date a month or two back, and has now hired a director.

Matt Shakman, who directed the WandaVision series for Marvel and Disney+ – as well as episodes of Game Of Thrones – has been hired to helm the movie. He’s going to be working with a script by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson, with JJ Abrams producing the film.

It looks like too that Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto will be returning, although that’s not been confirmed. The movie will be in cinemas on June 9th 2023. More, as always, as we hear it.
