Quentin Tarantino might be making a Star Trek movie

Quentin Tarantino might be making a Star Trek movie

Quentin Tarantino is taking a trip into Gene Roddenberry's future. There is now no confirmation on the Star Trek movie idea from Paramount or from Tarantino.

According to Deadline, the 54-year-old actor and director is now teaming up with JJ Abrams to assemble a writers room.

Turning A Classic Episode Into A Movie?

More recently this September, the director told TMZ that "it would be worth having a meeting" about directing the next Star Trek film and confirmed that he plans to direct two more films before retiring. Back in 2015, the filmmaker laid out his vision for a Star Trek movie on the Nerdist podcast, claiming that he wanted to get away from the multi-character story arcs of the reboots, which Beyond would later fully embrace.

Tarantino has said he'll call it a day when he's reached ten films.

"Because the whole thing with that episode that was so cool, they save the ship, but little do they know by saving the ship it's actually in a different time period - but they don't know that", Tarantino said. The excitement about this particular project wouldn't be the impact that Trek would have on Tarantino; it's what Tarantino would have on Trek. Moving beyond this stage would require a great deal of work before Paramount would consider greenlighting the project. With the Manson film at number 9, if he remains true to his word, the Star Trek film would be his last.

Tarantino is known for creating his own original stories such as Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, The Hateful Eight, and more. However, he has served as a for-hire director in television before, helming episodes of both ER and CSI.
