New Star Trek 4 movie could happen,lead actors already signed on. According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures has already taken the initiative to make sure lead actors for their Star Trek franchise, Chris Pine (James T. Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Mr. Spock), are signed on for a 4th installment if the studio decides to greenlight it.

We have to write that way, because Paramount hasn’t technically announced a new, 4th movie yet. It will come down to what it always comes down to, straight up money, and how much the 3rd installment titled “Beyond” brings in at the box office.

The 3rd installment is doing quite well and is on track to outdo the first and second installments, so that’s a good sign. If the 4th movie gets greenlit, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto will reportedly get a huge raise up to $6 million from $3 million to do the film.

Paramount will probably have to give the other supporting characters a raise as well, so that will have to be figured into the equation.

It’s believed that a 4th installment will likely get approved by Paramount, but possible with a smaller budget to compensate for all this money that Paramount will have to pay these actors. Also, director JJ Abrams told Entertainment Weekly that he hopes the 3rd installment does really well, because he really wants to do a 4th movie, stating: “It really is an amazing story.

It’s really the reason we made the deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could because we really want the story to be told, fingers crossed.” Alright, guys. Stay tuned for developments on this.
