Well there’s two things you never thought you’d see together, Quentin Tarantino and Star Trek. But, it’s Hollywood and when it comes to the big screen anything is possible. No this is not a joke, I’m actually going to break down what would happen when/if Quentin Tarantino directs and creates a Star Trek movie. First of all, the would be awesome. Let’s not get that disputed because when it comes to classic movies, there are only a handful of directors that could compete with Tarantino’s portfolio. Tarantino’s gory films mixed with inter galactic warfare needs to happen. With that being said, is it a going to happen? Less than likely.
According to a report by Deadline, despite being busy at work on a Sony picture set to revolve around the famous serial killer Charles Manson, Tarantino is pitching an idea to Star Wars producer and director JJ Abrams for a Star Trek movie. Deadline Reports:
Sources said that Tarantino has come up with a great idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount. After sharing his idea with JJ Abrams (who himself is busy prepping Star Wars Episode IX), I’ve heard the plan is to assemble a writers room of scribes who’ll hear Tarantino’s take and begin to put together a movie. If it all works out, Tarantino might direct it, with Abrams producing.
This is all great, but there have been a ton of Tarantino movies that have not come to fruition and this could add to the list of many.
