Of course a future epic Trek movie might very well capture the best from TV Trek. But as neither TWOK nor FC nor any other previous epic Trek movie had much to do with the series I'd generalize and claim that based on the past history of Trek it is unlikely and while Trek is a cash cow it is virtually impossible.

Just take the Borg, they had to be transformed from the collectivistic nightmare they were in TNG to the zombie-like creatures in FC. That's simply how cinema works. Same with TOS stories like City on the Edge of Forever which is far too slow for the big screen or Journey to Babel which once again uses too much background.
If we get background on characters and a slow exploration of the setting in general it's Sybok or the Ba'ku.


But as you said, it's not an exact science and anything might happen.
