Is Quentin Tarantino Making A 'Star Trek' Movie?

Tarantino has an eye to direct the potential project.

There has been no comment from Paramount Pictures.

If the rumor is true, it's an unexpected move for the director, who's traditionally made his own original work (a couple of episodes of CSI and an episode of ER stand as the only exceptions). That doesn't mean we're going to see a Star Trek movie in the style of Pulp Fiction.

Quentin Tarantino is very busy working on his next feature film which will concentrate on the Manson murder spree in 1969, yet apparently, he wants to take even more on. Abrams presumably liked the story pitch, and they now plan to assemble a writers room, who will hear Tarantino's treatment and start writing a script. Tarantino is known to be a fan of the sci-fi media franchise. This is not the first time Quentin Tarantino's name has been linked to a major Hollywood franchise, though some came closer to becoming reality than others.

For the last few years, Tarantino has said he only plans on making 10 films (with Kill Bill counting as one film), and then retiring.

Facebook's rules require that children be at least 13 to create an account , but many are believed to get around the restrictions. Facebook also confirms that it's taking great measures to make sure that the app doesn't come off in any way exploitative.


All three of these movies were met with critical acclaim not just for the manner in which they honored the stories that inspired them, but for their creative storytelling, compelling characters and timeless quality.

According to Deadline, Tarantino may direct with Abrams producing.

Reading between the lines of the initial report, we're a long way from seeing "Tarantino's Star Trek". Following the high-profile departure of Colin Trevorrow from Star Wars 9 - the sequel to this month's The Last Jedi - LucasFilm turned to Abrams to take his place.

"You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more, and really do some wonderful awesome stuff.", he said in 2015. The obvious one would be The City on the Edge of Forever.
