Paramount Pictures announced two new films for its long-running Star Trek franchise, reported The Hollywood Reporter. Ava DuVernay is now developing a movie based on DC Comics' The New Gods for Warner Bros., while indie filmmaker Cathy Yan last week was hired to helm a pic based on DC anti-heroine Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey comic book characters. Payne and Patrick McKay - which would involve Chris Hemsworth returning as George Kirk.

Paramount's Jim Gianopulos touted two Trek films.

It's important to note that at this point Paramount has not officially given any official green light to any Star Trek film, however the mention of Skydance's involvement is a key important step.

It has been rumored for months that Abrams, along with director Quinten Tarantino and writer Mark L. Smith, are working on at least one of the Star Trek films together.

Clarkson is best known for her work on the TV scene with shows such as "Dexter", "Bates Motel", "Orange is the New Black", and "Jessica Jones".

With each entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie series-Star Trek Beyond most recently-earning less money than the previous, Paramount stepped back from rushing a Star Trek 4 into development. Clarkson becoming the first female filmmaker to helm a Star Trek film is a big deal and yet another sign that Hollywood is catching on that female directors actually exist and are more than qualified to take on big blockbuster franchises. Fingers crossed, but I just can't strongly believe it's going to happen. Quentin is off doing another movie. So I don't know.

Another "Star Trek" film is also being developed by J.J. Abrams and Quentin Tarantino, however, it will arrive after "Star Trek 4".
