Sources say the project is not being put on hold.
It appears Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth may not star in the upcoming Star Trek film after talks with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media have reportedly fallen through.
According to sources close to The Hollywood Reporter, Pine and Hemsworth were in negotiations to reprise their roles as James and George Kirk, but were unable to come to an agreement on compensation.
Pine and Hemsworth reportedly asked the studios to honor their existing deals, which have been in place for several years, while Paramount wanted the actors to take pay cuts in light of the poor performance of Star Trek Beyond.
Deals with Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, and others were set to follow. What this means for the future of the film remains to be seen, although sources insist the film remains a priority for the studios, and it is not being put on hold.
