Noah Hawley says his StarTrek movie that was put on hold wouldn't be about Kirk or Picard, but would have a 'Fargo'-like tie to the existing franchise: 'You reward the audience with a thing that they love'

— the writer who somehow adapted an eccentric and beloved Coen brothers film into one of the most decorated television series of the past decade — sent a letter to the show’s cast and crew. He wrote about the importance of safety. He wrote about mutual responsibility. He wrote about Tom Cruise.

“It’s certainly the most ambitious season,” he says. “My feeling is always unless you think it can be the best one yet, don’t make another.” “He was a novelist, and he had developed his skills as a showrunner,” says FX Networks and FX Prods. chairman John Landgraf. “So when he came to FX, I knew he was a really good writer. What I didn’t really know about him is what a complete filmmaker he was, how truly gifted a director as well as writer he was. He’s part of that rare breed that just has command over every club in the bag.”

“When it finally became what it became, it was genius,” Landgraf says. “It was brilliant. He was right.” Hawley had Rock in mind as the boss of the Cannon family before he even began writing. “He just popped into my head, which doesn’t normally happen,” Hawley says. He called FX, and the wheels were set in motion for a meeting between Hawley and Rock, who turned out to be a fan of the show.

Rock was himself poised for a career turning point, starring in a pair of high-profile dramatic roles in “Fargo” and the grim horror film “Spiral,” both set for summer debuts, both delayed. “On that last day where I had to tell him this is the last scene we’re going to shoot for who knows how long, and he realized this is it — I think that was hard for him to go from this moment of relaunching to not knowing when it’ll happen or if it’ll happen,” Hawley says.

According to Hawley, his “Star Trek” treatment is still alive, just in stasis. Watts, who will decide whether it moves forward, oversaw 20th Century Fox when its sibling, Searchlight, released “,” Hawley’s feature directorial debut, last year. The film starred Natalie Portman as an astronaut shaken by her experience in space.

“It’s an ambitious, movie-star-driven film with big themes, and a very emotional film,” he says. “What is that if not a fall film?”
