March 8th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Buckle in, it looks like the Starship Enterprise is set to embark on another feature-length adventure.

Star Trek: Discovery (ugh) writer Kalinda Vazquez will be writing for JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot who will produce the movie.

Vasquez wrote on Marvel’s Runaways, Once Upon a Time, Nikita, Human Target and Prison Break and this movie will be a new ‘blind deal’ for the movie which will based on an original idea she’s had for an adventure.

Does this mean no original cast? Will it be a movie for the cinema or Paramount+? No idea as of this moment in time, I’m afraid.

Getting a new Star Trek movie out of the gates has been an issue for a few years now… is this the one? Only time will tell…


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
