Paramount announced the next Star Trek installment back in July 2016. Chris Hemsworth is said to be returning as George Kirk, father of Chris Pine’s Captain James T. Kirk, though he was killed in the beginning of 2009's Star Trek reboot.
If a deal is reached for Clarkson to direct, she will be the first female to direct a film in the long-running sci-fi franchise.
