Tarantino’s Star Trek Could Get an R-Rating, Patrick Stewart Interested In Being Involved

The voyage to the next Star Trek movie has taken some unexpected turns, as acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino is reportedly working on a story pitch for Paramount for an R-rated Star Trek.

Tarantino is famous for the films Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight, and both Kill Bill movies.

On the production front, Tarantino has already met with several potential writers, one of whom is Mark L. Smith of The Revenant fame. According to Deadline, Smith is the frontrunner to write this potential Star Trek movie.

As if that wasn’t news enough, Patrick Stewart said he’d be open to reviving his famous character should Tarantino want him, thanks to the actor’s enormous respect for the director.

“One of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction,” said Stewart to The Hollywood Reporter. “So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr. Tarantino, I would embrace it.”

Taken together, these developments mean the franchise may certainly be boldly going where it has never gone before.

Keep in mind that nothing is certain at the moment, but it seems a Tarantino-style Star Trek film is a growing possibility.

    I hope Quentin gets the go ahead.
    “To boldly go…” isn’t that the saying?

    I don’t care about the rating . STD is already using foul language and it’s a horrible anti Trek show. Tarantino would make a great movie. This really needs to happen. Abrams is just a politician with no artistic skills. Get him out of there and put Tarantino in.

    Respectfully, but has Mr Stewart forgotten that the reboot is about 80 years before The Next Generation? Since Chris Hemsworth is reportedly joining the new Trek movie, I believe the timelines are going to be straightened out, Kirk’s Dad will be alive, Vulcan and Spock’s Mother will be alive, again. Hopefully. I personally hope Quentin doesn’t get the green light.

      Respectfully, the last three Star Trek films are crap. I welcome Tarantino.

      Maybe that means they’re abandoning JJ Trek. Which would be great.

        Yup! In hindsight I actually did enjoy the first JJ Trek movie. Although initially jarring because of all the changes it was actually a pretty good movie looking back on it. That said the last 2 were just downright awful.

    NOOOOOOO!!! Roddenberry would roll over in his grave if Tarantino directed an R-rated Star Trek project. He had a wonderful vision of the future, one of optimism.
    “Intolerance in the 23rd century? Improbable! If humankind survives that long, we will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between people and between cultures. We will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear. It’s a manifestation of the greatness that God, or whatever it is, gave us. This infinite variation and delight, this is part of the optimism that we built into Star Trek.”
    — Gene Roddenberry I have yet to see a Tarantino film that exhibits that ideology.. To do other wise is a travesty to his memory and work.
