Based on the Star Trek captain/Part 31 govt producer Alex Kurtzman, “All the way in which again to 2017, earlier than the primary season of Star Trek: Discovery had even aired, Michelle got here up with the concept of doing a spin-off for her character.” Mentioned spin-off is written by Craig Sweeny and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, who each hung out with Georgiou on Discovery: Sweeny as author and consulting producer, and Osunsanmi as govt producer and director. (Yeoh can be an govt producer on the movie.)
In a press launch, Yeoh mentioned: “Part 31 has been expensive to my coronary heart since I began taking part in Philippa because the launch of this new golden age of “Star Trek”. Seeing her lastly get her second is a dream come true in a 12 months that has proven me the unbelievable energy of by no means giving up in your desires. We won’t wait to share what’s in retailer for you, and till then: reside lengthy and prosper (except Emperor Georgiou decides in any other case)!”
