The Next Star Trek Movie Has Hit A New Setback, And It Looks Like Fans Can Blame Marvel

ytsfreeAugust 27, 2022

Earlier today, Marvel fans around the world were treated to some exciting news: months after the developing Fantastic Four movie lost director Jon Watts, it is now being reported that WandaVision‘s Matt Shakman has come aboard to helm the project. That’s obviously huge news for the highly anticipated MCU movie, but what’s good news for that production is bad news for another, as the move has resulted in Shakman stepping away from the upcoming Star Trek film to which he has been attached since July 2021. 

The Hollywood Reporter is saying that “scheduling issues” are the cause of Matt Shakman stepping away from the next Star Trek movie, and the trade points directly at the news from this morning about Fantastic Four. Paramount Pictures has released an official statement about the development, which reads,

Matt Shakman is an incredibly talented filmmaker, and we regret the timing didn’t align for him to direct our upcoming Star Trek film. We are grateful for his many contributions, are excited about the creative vision of this next chapter and look forward to bringing it to audiences all around world.
