I regard this as 100% good news: Noah Hawley is now making the next Star Trek film, instead of Quentin "of course it's going to be rated R!" Tarantino.  QT's Trek is still in development, but as a genuine Hawley fan I'm glad that this is the thing we're getting first.

I don't know anything about Hawley, but I'm very happy to have the chance to see this crew on the big screen again.

No interest.  They lost me completely with INTO DARKNESS, and the 2009 version has aged horribly in my eyes.

Shit-can J.J. Abrams as producer and maybe I'll keep tabs on this, but otherwise...

I was pretty doubtful about the 2009 version in the first place, but definitely had the living heck entertained out of me by it.  "Into Darkness" was a train wreck, but I thought "Beyond" was also cracking-good entertainment.

Odd board-related anecdote: I shared my doubts about the 2009 film on the thread here after it was announced, and some troll who first came here to shitpost actually came to my blog and harassed me there in the comments.  Weird, but memorable.

Hawley wore the helm of showrunner for the X-Men film related TV show LEGION, which may or may not influence whether you'll like what he might bring to STAR TREK.   Personally, I thought LEGION was quite ambitous and unique in it's execution and well worth watching.

Let's hope they drop this creatively lazy time travel plot of Kirk meeting his father.  I don't see anything good coming from a storyline like that unless it serves to end the Kelvin timeline and erase the events of these films for good.

Updates on the Hawley and Tarantino Treks: 

- Hawley's is now at least officially on hold, partly out of fears of an interesting sounding but studio-scaring, all-too-depressing storyline about a galactic pandemic

- Tarantino's Trek seems to still be in the running, and word is that it's based on TOS episode "A Piece of the Action," because Tarantino is a boring one-note guy and can't conceive of a genre picture unless there's gangsters in it (that last bit is of course my own editorializing)

- Supposedly the ORIGINAL Trek 4 with the Pine/Quinto crew and Hemsworth returning as dad is at the top of the pile again, but...

...who the hell knows?

  Maybe Samuel L Jackson will be Kirk and Travolta as Spock.

 I'm tired of these mutha-fu@$ing Klingons on my mutha-fu@$ing Starship!

Get some real honest-to-goodness science-fiction writers involved with story & script, and maybe that would pique my interest.

STAR TREK has been handled by Hollywood hacks for decades now (our esteemed host excluded, of course!).  It's been dumbed-down to the point of no return.

I rather wish they had a story and movie that were presented by dint of its quality, and not because of the writer or director or stars...

Maybe one where the Enterprise isn't damaged to the point of destruction. Maybe where they follow the plaque on the Enterprise - "To boldly go where no man has gone before." Maybe one where the personal interplay of the Enterprise's crew isn't the main point of the film. Maybe one where the producers can pretend that there were no previous Star Trek TV series or  movies, but can make an all original movie without care of what came before (e.g., Leonard Nimoy as Spock, a redux of TWoK, Kirk's birthday and how he prefers to celebrate alone...)

You say that won't sell? HA! NOBODY IS MAKING MOVIES THESE DAYS! It's gotta be a couple years at least before new movies hit the screen. Surely that's enough time for a little originality...
