London Resort Company Holdings and Paramount were unable to come to terms on a deal that would have resulted in Paramount London, an amusement park that would have included a Star Trek-themed area.
The Starfleet Command Zone would have been one of the seven zones planned for the amusement park, which would have also included a water park, hotel, theater, business facilities and more.
London Resort Company Holdings “needed to move on from Paramount,” and part of the reason was the inability to come to terms on “some of the rights to major films, including the image rights for some of their top stars.”
“We want to express our sincere thanks to the many members of the Paramount team who have worked with us since we took over the project in August 2013,” said LRCH Chief Executive Humphrey Percy.
“We are working closely with the local authorities, landowners and local community, as well as our other stakeholders, and we very much look forward to showing our plans to the public as part of our final stage of consultation prior to submitting later this year.
“We are creating a unique entertainment destination offering a scale and quality unprecedented in the UK where much-loved characters and stories will be brought to life from iconic movies, television, books, electronic gaming and toys.”
The park will be built, but without Paramount and without Paramount‘s big-name movie franchises, including Star Trek.
