Rated Star Trek Movie In The Works From Quentin Tarantino

Rated Star Trek Movie In The Works From Quentin Tarantino

So, maybe Tarantino is planning to direct the film?

Earlier in the week it was learned that Quentin Tarantino pitched a Star Trek movie to JJ Abrams, and now the movie is moving forward at warp speed.

The only way Tarantino would sign on to do the "Star Trek" film was if the studio would agree to an "R" rating, which is typically not done with tentpole features such as these but to get such a high profile writer/director on board, Paramount and Abrams both agreed to his demands.

And in pushing ahead with his plans, Deadline reports that Tarantino recently met with writers Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3), Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking) and Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) to throw around plans and see who might be the best fit for the scripting job.

In the more than five decades since the original series premiered, "Star Trek" movies and TV shows have been a decidedly family friendly affair. On top of that, "Deadpool" proved previous year that even R-rated films can make a splash at the box office. We'll let you know as more information is available, but for now, steel yourself against the tide of angry Trekkies taking to their message boards to say that their beloved series should never, ever be R-Rated.

Not surprisingly, the idea for the bold new film comes from Quentin Tarantino, who basically doesn't get out of bed for anything less than an R rating. If he's selected, he will overtake Justin Lin who directed 2016's Star Trek Beyond. His next film, which is set around the Charles Manson murders, is set at Sony and was given an August 2019 release date, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the murder of Sharon Tate and four others on August 9, 1969. Sources also have compared the film to Tarantino's Pulp Fiction while noting it will have a budget in the range of Django Unchained, which had a $100-million budget but grossed over $425 million at the global box office.
