Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth were in negotiations to star in Star Trek 4 but sources say that talks between the two actors and the companies, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, couldn't come to an money agreement deal. Pine was due to reprise his role as iconic sci-fi hero Captain Kirk, which he has inhabited for three movies, while Hemsworth was to have played his father in a time-traveling adventure. Pine and Hemsworth want the studios to stick to existing deals as they insist they have deals in place and that the studios are reneging on them, forcing them to take pay cuts as they try to budget a movie that is following a mediocre performer. Paramount, according to insiders, contends that Trek is not like a Marvel or Star Wars movie and is trying to hold the line on a budget. The last movie, Star Trek Beyond, grossed only $343 million worldwide on a budget of $190 million. The project could recast Kirk and his father if both sides don't come to some sort of an agreement. Either way, the movie remains a priority development and is not being put on hold and for the first time in the franchise history, a female director, S. J. Clarkson is sitting in the captain’s chair. Dealmaking with other returning castmembers — including Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and John Cho are expected to follow. Source: THR
