….First Female Director

"If you thought the most surprising thing about Star Trek film franchise was that Quentin Tarantino was potentially penning an R-rated script for it, think again. The big news now is that the Star Trek movieverse will finally be adding a female director to its ranks. Damn, it's about time.

Earlier today, we told you that Paramount revealed at the recent CinemaCon that the studio is working on two Trek movies, though it didn't get into any specifics (like, for instance, is one of them Tarantino's take on the veteran franchise? Or perhaps the hinted-at return of Chris Hemsworth as the father of Chris Pine's Captain Kirk?) Amid all that vagueness, at last we've got some concrete news this evening, courtesy of Variety, which just confirmed that S.J. Clarkson will direct what's being called Star Trek 4 from a script by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.

While additional details remain scarce, this film seems to be the Chris reunion in the making, according to the trade, which suggests that the father and son will meet thanks to a "time travel" plot; Zachary Quinto's Spock will also be a part of the story. Variety also noted that the Tarantino/J.J. Abrams Trek film is still in development, but "sources say it is still being written and would come after the fourth movie."…."

Does it matter anymore if the director is male or female???

As long as it's a good film the director will have done their work – whether a man or a woman.

The studio has to get its"gender equality" ticket punched but, no, it shouldn't matter.

Or, it's news because there are so few female directors in Hollywood. Making up over 50% of the population, and somewhat less than 10% of directors. If more women directed big budget movies, I don't think it would make the news.

thumbs up

There are still a lot of "boys clubs" in a lot of industries.

There are still a lot of "boys clubs" in a lot of industries.

Including this one. How many female rules designers are there? Figure sculptors (Julie Guthrie and…). Game companies run by women?

So long as it isn't the gal who ruined "A Wrinkle in Time". *shudder*

It is the gal who ruined "A Wrinkle in Time." The sense is that "use the best talent" gets a back seat to PC. Sex shouldn't matter, but it does in the movie industry.

It's the same woman? Well…poop. That's not encouraging.

Neither is going back to the well-trodden path of time travel, for that matter.
