Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth will not be starring in Episode 4 of the sci-fi Star Trek. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actors were not satisfied with the contracts offered by the studio.
Talks with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media are said to have reached an impasse, and the actors who consider themselves stars of the first magnitude have refused to continue. In turn, Paramount does not intend to significantly inflate the project's budget, since the previous Star Trek series did not show outstanding results at the box office.
Recall that the third movie, the cost of which is estimated at $ 190 million, is failed, raising only $ 343 million.
The further fate of the continuation remains unknown. In theory, Paramount Pictures may opt out of Chris Hemsworth's services. but it is not possible to replace Pine. Representatives of the parties have not yet commented on the situation.
Recall that the fourth episode will be the first movie in the franchise to be directed by a woman. Which, of course, immediately affected the composition of the heroes .. Earlier it was reported that instead of a villain in the picture there will be a villainess, and a new heroine will also appear in it, who will be an ally of Captain Kirk and his team.
