Those anticipating the latest installment of the rebooted "Star Trek" film franchise will have to wait a little longer. Deadline reports that "Star Trek Beyond" has moved release dates from July 8, 2016 to July 22, 2016; delaying the Justin Lin-directed movie by a fortnight.
Deadline's article connects the late July success of this year's "Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation" -- also a Paramount film -- as a potential reason for the film's scheduling shift. The movie, the third starring this cast, is currently in production.
"Star Trek Beyond" is set to reunite the main cast of 2009's "Star Trek" and 2013's "Star Trek Into Darkness," with Lin (known for his work on the "Fast & Furious" franchise) taking the directorial reins from J.J. Abrams. The screenplay is by Simon Pegg, who co-stars in the film as Scotty, and Doug Jung. Franchiser newcomers Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella are set to join the cast.
