Quentin Tarantino Developing 'Star Trek' Movie Idea With JJ Abrams

Details are scarce on the shape Quentin Tarantino's proposed Star Trek movie will take, although thanks to the director's word himself we may actually have a good idea of which episodes he wants to tackle. Yes, really. The report on the site says that Tarantino has shared a pitch for a Star Trek film with Abrams, who apparently was so impressed, he's made a decision to convene a writer's room in order to develop the project. Both entertainment outlets confirm the two now plan on bringing a writers room together for Paramount to flush things out.

Anonymous sources have told Deadline Hollywood that the Oscar-winning writer/director has "a great idea" for a new film in the sci-fi series, which he might direct with Abrams on board as a producer. The excitement about this particular project wouldn't be the impact that Trek would have on Tarantino; it's what Tarantino would have on Trek. He's also said on numerous occasions that he plans to call time on his directing career once he reaches ten movies, so perhaps he's looking to check the box before he calls it a day. "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some fantastic, awesome stuff". And he's shared that idea with fellow director J.J. Abrams (currently working on "Star Wars: Episode IX").

While it is exciting that there is some momentum behind a fourth Kelvin-verse Star Trek movie, it is worth keeping in mind that Tarantino's pitch is just that. Huahua Media financed Star Trek Beyond in 2016.

He has never taken the reins on a franchise, though he did once direct an episode of ER and a couple of episodes of CSI.
