Tarantino Star Trek Movie?

Quentin Tarantino J.J. Abrams

First, what the hell will a Tarantino-helmed Star Trek movie look like?

Quentin Tarantino is reportedly working with J.J. Abrams on a new Star Trek movie for Paramount.

Deadline reported if the screenwriters like the pitch, Tarantino could be directing the movie and Abrams would produce the film. There's a chance that if he likes the results, he might even direct it, though we question whether QT would want count it among his own films, since he's planning to make a limited number of movies. Back in September, the director was a guest on the Nerdist podcast, where he discussed his love for certain Star Trek episodes, like Harlan Ellison's "City on the Edge of Forever", which saw the crew of the Enterprise flung back in time after a medical accident sends Doctor Leonard McCoy fleeing from the ship.

Anonymous sources have told Deadline Hollywood that the Oscar-winning writer/director has "a great idea" for a new film in the sci-fi series, which he might direct with Abrams on board as a producer.


Last year, the "Pulp Fiction", "Django Unchained" and "Reservoir Dogs" screen legend confirmed his plans to retire after his tenth movie, adding: "Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I'm considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived". 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.

Tackling a intellectual property like Star Trek would be a marked shift for Tarantino.

Folloing the release of Star Trek Beyond in 2016, Paramount announced plans for a fourth film focusing on Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his deceased father (Chris Hemsworth).
