Chris Hemsworth to Star in ‘Star Trek 4′
The next installment of the rebooted Star Trek franchise is doubling up on its
Chris star power. Chris Hemsworth, who briefly appeared in the prologue of 2009’s Star Trek as Captain James T. Kirk’s father, will now return to the saga as a co-star.
Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father.
J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are slated to pen the new script, while J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber will produce through Bad Robot Productions.
No release date has been given. Meanwhile, the franchise’s third installment, Star Trek Beyond, opens in theaters July 22.
