The director has just booked a gig directing the forthcoming Star Trek 4, making her the first female director in the entire franchise's history.

It's not clear if the Pegg and Jung script Quinto mentions is for Star Trek 4, or yet another possible Trek sequel.

Signing a director makes Star Trek 4 a lot more likely to happen, especially with its willing cast. Abrams and Quinten Tarantino and being written by Mark L. Smith. The actor appeared in Star Trek which released in 2009 and starred Chris Pine as James Kirk. The decision was announced by Paramount Pictures at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Clarkson's time travel narrative will be one, which leaves the other Star Trek movie up for grabs. Paramount Pictures is also developing a film with the director along with J.J.

Cosby had admitted to giving Constand the anti-allergy medication Benadryl and that their sexual encounter was consensual. The actor offered her three blue pills to "help take the edge off", which she took believing they were a natural remedy.

Clarkson is well-known for her work on Dexter, Bates Motel, Orange is the New Black and Jessica Jones. It will be executive produced by David Ellison and Dana Goldberg from Skydance Media.

Now, if you've been following the Star Trek news over the past several months, you'll know that we really don't know which movie is getting made over there. Besides informing that "A Quiet Place" sequel is now in development, Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos further hyped audiences by announcing that the studio is now developing two "Star Trek" movies. Clarkson also oversaw a slew of episodes for The Defenders, adding to her impressive Netflix resume. Many box office watchers believe confusion over how Rogue One: A Star Wars Story related to the characters and events introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens may have hurt its box office (that said, it still cleared a billion dollars).
