STAR TREK 4 Will Bring Together Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth
The first Star Trek film directed by J.J. Abrams began with an emotional scene of Chris Hemsworth as Kirk’s dad sacrificing himself to save his crew and his family. Kirk grew up under the shadow of his father and his legacy, which is something we’ll see him struggling to free himself from in Star Trek Beyond. Now it looks like there’s a good chance that Kirk could meet his dad in Star Trek 4.
While talking to Collider at the Star Trek Beyond press conference, producer J.J. Abrams said that they are already thinking about idea for Star Trek 4. He told them:
“Yes, and there’s something that hopefully we’re figuratively minutes away from talking about. The answer is 100% yes, and it’s incredibly exciting.”
That was followed by a tweet from reporter Scott Mantz, who excitedly revealed that Abrams confirmed to him that the fourth Star Trek would bring together Pine and Hemsworth. You can read that tweet here:
It would be pretty awesome to see these two characters finally meet and interact with each other. If this actually ends up happening, there’s no doubt that it will be quite an emotional event for both the characters.
Since this is the Star Trek universe and there are now alternate timelines being played with in the franchise, it’s not hard to think that Abrams and his team could find a way to bring these two characters together.
Of course, this is all very early talk regarding aspects of a film that doesn't even have a script yet, so it's subject to change as they work on developing the next chapter in the Star Trek saga.
