Noah Hawley’s Star Trek

Speaking with Variety, Noah Hawley revealed his planned Star Trek movie concerning “a virus that wipes out vast parts of the known universe” appears totally unrelated to established franchise characters until its closing moments.

We’re not doing Kirk and we’re not doing Picard. It’s a start from scratch that then allows us to do what we did with Fargo, where for the first three hours you go, ‘Oh, it really has nothing to do with the movie,’ and then you find the money. So you reward the audience with a thing that they love.

....aaaaannnnndddd....

Just like that I’m having visions of Robocop without Robocop! ;-)

Seriously, though, I suppose a new film could be made that falls into the “established” universe... but why give that away right now before even one second of filming is done?

Seems like a pretty big spoiler to reveal so early in the game!
