Paramount Pictures shelves Star Trek 4

CBS All Access Planning a New Star Trek Animated Series

With both the director gone and two of the stars walking away due to salary disputes, Star Trek 4 sadly won't be engaging audiences anytime soon.

Whether the Tarantino project will arrive to save the day is not yet known, but Trekkies still have Netflix series Star Trek: Discovery and a planned new reboot project with Sir Patrick Stewart's Jean-Luc Picard to keep them warm.

Star Trek Into Darkness did even better box office office business than the first movie, but fared less well among fans, while Star Trek Beyond was a pretty significant box office failure.

Some fans will celebrate the potential end of the Kelvin timeline...

... The new show will take place in the original Prime timeline but we'll see that "Picard's life was radically altered by the dissolution of the Romulan Empire". And hopefully unlike Nemesis, it's actually good. The destruction of Romulus would also have extra resonance for Picard, who has a long and complicated relationship with the Romulans, the alien race that split from Vulcan society thousands of years ago and founded a separate civilization. For that reason, Stewart was initially hesitant to return to the Enterprise, and it took some convincing from executive producer Alex Kurtzman, among others, to get him to sign aboard.

Man caught on cam licking doorbell for 3 hr
Rather than trying to break in, however, he apparently made a decision to hang out and lick their doorbell-for three hours. Identified by police as 33-year-old Roberto Daniel Arroyo , the man stole extension cords from the holiday decorations.

"What he understood at that point was that he was with people who desperately wanted to collaborate with him, that we weren't trying to exploit him", Kurtzman recalled.

Luckily, Stewart did, in fact, love it and said yes, as Kurtzman explained.

"[Stewart] threw down an incredible gauntlet and said, 'If we do this, I want it to be so different, I want it to be both what people remember but also not what they're expecting at all, otherwise why do it?'" Kurtzman explained, adding that the British actor wanted the writers/producers to create a document explaining all their ideas, no matter how big or small. And it's a rule in Hollywood: You can't have more than one Spock running around at the same time.
