Star Trek 4 Just Lost Its Director

Preceding Paramount Pictures’ announcement about Matt Shakman leaving “Star Trek 4,” word was that the filmmaker was in talks to direct Marvel Studios’ version of “Fantastic Four.” Paramount issued a statement regarding the departure of Shakman from the movie, which was set to be released on December 22, 2023 (via The Hollywood Reporter).

“Matt Shakman is an incredibly talented filmmaker, and we regret the timing didn’t align for him to direct our upcoming Star Trek film,” the studio said in a statement. “We are grateful for his many contributions, are excited about the creative vision of this next chapter and look forward to bringing it to audiences all around world.” THR wrote that the studio is already searching for Shakman’s replacement but was unaware if the December 2023 release date would stay intact.

Meanwhile, no official announcement has been made by Marvel Studios about Shakman taking over the opening to direct “Fantastic Four,” which became available in April after Jon Watts left the project (via Deadline). Given the success of the MCU’s “WandaVision” — it landed a limited series-leading 23 Emmy nominations in 2021, winning three — it seems to be all but a certainty that Shakman will direct “Fantastic Four.”
