The Upcoming “Star Trek” Film Has Parted Ways With Director Matt Shakman

Shakman, who was supposed to direct a Star Trek movie for Paramount, has backed out of the project due to scheduling conflicts brought on by the fact that he will now be working on Fantastic Four for Marvel Studios instead.

The release of the film was scheduled for December 22nd, 2023 and was considered to be one of the most important projects at the studio located on Melrose Avenue.

In a statement, Paramount Pictures said, “Matt Shakman is a very brilliant filmmaker, and we regret that the circumstances didn’t align for him to helm our forthcoming Star Trek film.”

“We are pleased about the creative vision of this new chapter and look forward to bringing it to audiences all around the world. We are appreciative of his numerous efforts.”

Shakman made his name in the field of television, and he most recently received praise for his work on Marvel’s Emmy Award-winning series WandaVision.

Before moving on to Game of Thrones, he started his career on the sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, where he refined his comic skills and gathered expertise.

As a direct result of the success of the show Wandavision, which was nominated for an astounding 24 Emmys, of which it won three, and has become an important part of pop culture in the past year, he is now considered to be one of the most prominent and in-demand directors in town.

During the summer of 2021, the director made his official debut on the set of the future Star Trek movie as a member of the cast or crew. Josh Friedman and Cameron Squires each made contributions to the most recent draught of the script, which was just finished.

They based their work on a draught that had been prepared in the beginning by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. This draught served as the basis for their work.


Paramount has been working on the next Star Trek film for quite some time now, and their goal is to bring back Chris Pine and the rest of the cast from the rebooted Enterprise that was seen for the first time in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek film from 2009.

Star Trek Beyond, released in 2016, marked the most recent appearance of several of the cast members, including Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, and John Cho, among others.
