Representatives who spoke with THR claimed Paramount refused to honor their pre-existing agreements, stating that "they have deals in place and that the studios are reneging on them, forcing them to take pay cuts" because of the poor performance of Star Trek Beyond - a great film that did badly at the box office in 2016. Apparently, the actors were asking Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media to stick to the existing deals, while the companies said the franchise was not as profitable as, say, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, both Pine and Hemsworth felt the studio wasn't paying either of them appropriately. Both of those scenarios are all but impossible to imagine, especially without the star power of the superhero headliners (Pine co-stars in DC's Wonder Woman films, while Hemsworth leads Marvel's Thor franchise).
Deals with Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, and others were set to follow.
The article specifically suggests that both the Pine and Hemsworth roles could be recast, and in the latter case, that wouldn't be particularly jarring.

The 2009 movie made only $385 million worldwide, but it made $257 million from domestic receipts. Paramount also has their Quentin Tarantino-scripted Star Trek film in development, so it will be interesting to see how they play their hand with Star Trek 4. He knows how to play a leading man in a big budget genre film, and he'd allow Star Trek to keep its recommended Chris quota intact.
