Paramount Pictures has firmed a deal for Rick Berman to produce and co-write the next “Star Trek” movie, with principal photography skedded to begin sometime in 1996.
The deal seals Par’s promise at NATO/ShoWest to deliver a sequel to “Star Trek Generations.”
No director or writers have been attached, but Berman confirmed the movie will bring back at least some of the cast and characters from the first feature film to spring from the syndie TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
Berman has helped navigate Par’s “Star Trek” enterprise since 1987. He produced and co-wrote the story for “Star Trek Generations.”
“Star Trek Generations” was the seventh motion picture to come from the “Star Trek” legacy created by Gene Roddenberry, a franchise that has brought in more than $1.4 billion in revenues from the television series, book sales and merchandising.
