Quentin Tarantino developing Star Trek film with JJ Abrams

Quentin Tarantino developing Star Trek film with JJ Abrams

US Hollywood tipsters Deadline report that the Reservoir Dogs and Hateful Eight director is in talks with Paramount to make an upcoming Star Trek film.

Deadline broke the story, and reported that the plan is to assemble a writers room of screenwriters to work on Tarantino's Star Trek idea and turn it into a screenplay. Abrams. Tarantino has flirted with directing installments of franchises in the past, most-notably James Bond.

This isn't something that'll be happening soon, though. That already has a release date of 9th August 2019, so there's no doubt that's next for him.

Deadline points out that Tarantino has never directed an entry in an established film series, so this would be new territory for the Oscar victor. But it would be his first sci-fi film.

Those are three characteristics a future "Star Trek" movie needs to live up to the shows that inspired it. After all, the director and Academy Award-winning writer has always developed his own ideas, and has never made a move that didn't garner an R rating.

Obviously this is still at a very early stage but Tarantino seems interested enough to explore the idea of developing a "Star Trek" movie based on his own story. Let us know your thoughts down below! Sadly, the untitled Star Trek project will probably be the last for Tarantino.

The studio, Paramount, has not commented on this matter.

But holy shit. Holy shit.

Tarantino has previously stated his appreciation for the Star Trek franchise, going back to the 1960s television series.

During the interview, Tarantino, who is a self-described fan of the original series and specifically William Shatner, said he'd much rather tackle a Star Trek movie than a Star Wars film.
