Director Josh Hawley to Helm Next Star Trek Film

Paramount is beaming up a new captain for its Star Trek franchise: Noah Hawley, who is best known for TV’s Fargo and Legion, will direct the next Trek film for the studio.

It is expected that Chris Pine will reprise his role as Captain James T. Kirk alongside such castmates as Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana, who have been with the film series since J.J. Abrams revamped the franchise in 2009.

Hawley will produce Star Trek 4 via his 26 Keys shingle along with Bad Robot, the production banner run by Abrams, who helmed the first two installments of this current Trek incarnation.
