STAR TREK BEYOND hasn’t even hit theaters yet and news is already breaking regarding a fourth film in the rebooted series. We’re now hearing that Chris Hemsworth, who played James T. Kirk’s father George in 2009’s Star Trek, will return to the franchise in the next installment.
Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness director (and Star Trek Beyond producer) J.J. Abrams broke the news to Access Hollywood film critic (and Star Trek super fan) Scott Mantz.
On Friday, Mantz tweeted “#JJAbrams confirms to me that a 4th #StarTrek movie will bring together #ChrisPine & #ChrisHemsworth!!”
