Despite how uncanny it might primarily seem, a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie is strictly happening. Tarantino announced final year that he would be slicing his oeuvre off during 10 films – with a 1969/Manson family plan being his second to last, that would make a Star Trek film his final effort.
He’s fasten a Star Trek franchise around an thought he pitched to J.J. Abrams. Tarantino stipulated to Abrams that he wanted to do a project, though on one condition – that he got to make a film R-rated, creation it a initial R-rated film in Star Trek history. Now, according to Deadline, Abrams and Paramount have fabricated a writers room to crush out Tarantino’s thought – he met with Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Lindsey Beer (Godzilla vs Kong) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) to speak about ideas for a script, and reportedly Mark L. Smith is in a forefront to write it.
There are a ton of questions still to be answered about both this plan and his other as-yet-unnamed film. Will it still unequivocally be his last? What will an R-rated Star Trek look like? Why, when Tarantino has always created his possess films, is he employing a author for a screenplay? To what grade will it engage a storylines/cast/etc of a prior Abrams Star Trek films? And…most importantly…why is he doing this?
