Star Trek 4 Shelved as Director Moves On

Buried in a Deadline article about the Game of Thrones pilot is news that impacts the movie portion of Star Trek. The hired director of Star Trek 4 was SJ Clarkson. However, she has now been tapped to direct the pilot episode for the Game of Thrones sequel. A job she became available for because Star Trek 4 "has since been shelved." This has not been officially confirmed by Paramount. Directors do leave slow moving projects, but considering just how slow moving Star Trek 4 has been, the shelved comment is likely not an exaggeration. End result, with the TV series firing on all thrusters, it is safe to assume the movie side of the franchise has been retired for the foreseeable future.
