Media Center>Tarantino making the Star Trek movie is still “a big possibility,”
BigRedChief 11:27 PM 06-10-2019
Quentin Tarantino is starting to do press for his upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Back in April Tarantino was quoted as saying making the movie is still “a big possibility,” and thanks to the press junket for the film, there’s been a bit more talk of his Trek movie.

While chatting with Empire magazine (the latest issue is available now to subscribers, and will be on newsstands later in the week), he was asked about the potential Star Trek movie he had pitched to Bad Robot in 2017. As previously reported, last year Tarantino’s initial idea was fleshed out into a draft of a script by screenwriter Mark L. Smith. And that’s where it sat, waiting for more action. Tarantino says the next step is for him to give notes on it:

There’s a script that exists for it now, I need to weigh in on it, but haven’t been able to do that yet.

Also not a surprise, and something that’s been brought up before, is that Tarantino would want to make the movie R-rated. The director confirmed this to Empire:

Oh yeah! It’s an R-rated move. If I do it, it’ll be R-rated.

Paramount keen on working with Tarantino

Tarantino’s film Upon a Time in Hollywood will be released next month, on July 26th. The Oscar-winning writer/director’s recent comments sound like he is interested in taking the next steps to develop his Star Trek movie later in the year. And based on comments from Paramount motion-picture group president Wyck Godfrey in January, the studio is also keen on Tarantino Trek.

Little is known about Tarantino’s Star Trek concept. Reports differ on what characters it would involve, although some of the cast of the Kelvin films have indicated they believe they would be involved, including Karl Urban who has called the concept “bananas.” Cast members from Star Trek’s prime timeline have also expressed an interest in being involved, including William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, and Jonathan Frakes.

Knowing Tarantino, he'd have Uhura getting a train ran on her by a bunch of Andorians as Spock watches on helplessly tied up in chains in the middle of Ponn Farr. Would set up the revenge story QT loves so much, at any rate.

Yeah, that would definitely work for me. I think anything he'd do would definitely have a Deep Space Nine vibe to it.

Has Star Trek ever done a "space marines" type of story? I'm sure the federation must have some type of military to deal with disputes. They've talked about wars as things that have happened in the past...

The Dominion War storyline in DS9 had several fighting grunt-type episodes, but never a dedicated series.

It would be a worthy way for Tarantino’s film career to come to a close.

At the end of 2017, some Quentin Tarantino news piqued the interest of movie lovers. The filmmaker was not only making a Los Angeles period piece centered around the 1969 Manson family murders (now known to be this summer’s box-office hit “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”), but he was also developing an R-rated “Star Trek” movie.

J.J. Abrams, who directed two films in the rebooted franchise ― 2009′s “Star Trek” and 2013′s “Star Trek Into Darkness” ― reportedly signed on to produce the Tarantino project, which Paramount Pictures rallied behind. They met with a few writers to take on his story, and landed on “The Revenant” scribe Mark L. Smith. But, nearly two years later, the only updated information we’ve been given is it’ll be like “‘Pulp Fiction’ in space.”

So, when speaking with Karl Urban about his new Amazon series “The Boys,” HuffPost asked the actor ― who plays Leonard “Bones” McCoy in Abrams’ adaptations ― if he had heard of anything moving forward at Paramount.

“This is a project that I have no information about, really,” he said. “I haven’t read a script for it, but I understand the basic concept of it.”


Previously, Urban called the idea “bananas” and was excited about the possibility of appearing in a Tarantino movie, as the director reportedly wants to use the actors from the reboot.


Karl Urban Says Studio Would Be 'Insane' Not To Make Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' Movie

The actor, who plays Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the J.J. Abrams films, would "relish the opportunity to be a part of it."

“I think Quentin Tarantino doing that film would be phenomenal,” Urban told HuffPost. “He is definitely one of the most exciting filmmakers that’s currently working and if he has an interest in making a ‘Star Trek’ film, I think the studio would be insane not to let him do that.”

If Tarantino does helm “Star Trek,” it may mark his directorial end. He recently told CinemaBlend that no matter what happens, his 10th film would be his last.

“I guess I do have a loophole, [if] the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], ‘Uhhh, I guess “Star Trek” doesn’t count. I can do “Star Trek” … but naturally I would end on an original.’ But the idea of doing 10 isn’t to come up with a loophole,” he said. “I actually think, if I was going to do ‘Star Trek,’ I should commit to it. It’s my last movie. There should be nothing left-handed about it. I don’t know if I’m going to do that, but that might happen.”

Seriously, could you imagine the speeches Spock would give with a Tarantino script? The movie would be 3.5 hours long at least. He might have to Kill Bill the movie into parts 1 and 2 just based on space lingo alone.

I like the "loophole" out for him to do an 11th movie since Star Trek wouldn't be an original movie. But, we can all agree that a Tarantino Star Trek movie would not be like anything "Star Trek" we have seen before.
