Quentin Tarantino And JJ Abrams Are Making A STAR TREK Movie Together

Quentin Tarantino And JJ Abrams Are Making A STAR TREK Movie Together

In September, Tarantino told TMZ that "it would be worth having a meeting" about directing the next Star Trek movie.

High aesthetic, foul-mouth dialogue auteur Quentin Tarantino reportedly has an idea for a new Star Trek movie, and he's already approached Trek cinema careholder JJ Abrams. 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.

At this point, it's unclear whether this means Paramount has abandoned its ambitions for Star Trek 4, which would have seen Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as Captain Kirk's father George Kirk. Tarantino has an eye to direct the potential project.

According to Deadline, the Pulp Fiction filmmaker is making plans for another chapter in the franchise alongside Abrams, who previously helmed 2009's Star Trek and its sequel Star Trek: Into Darkness in 2013, before moving into the Star Wars universe with 2015's The Force Awakens for Disney. Tarantino noted that many classic Star Trek episodes could be "easily expanded" into a feature film, and he specifically mentioned the Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" as one that could work on the big screen.

Second, Tarantino has said on numerous occasions that he plans to retire from directing films after his next two pictures. He has directed episodes of television shows ("CSI" and "ER"), but only ever mused about doing the same with movies like James Bond.

The film, which was slated to be released on August 9, 2019, the 50th anniversary of actress Sharon Tate's death, has no set cast.
