It's appearing more and more likely that director Quentin Tarantino will get his shot at making a Star Trek film. After positive comments earlier this year from Paramount execs, Tarantino himself has now confirmed that the project is in the works. "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," Tarantino told Empire magazine. Tarantino is currently doing publicity for his upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but it's likely he'll start pre-production on his Star Trek film later this year. Very little is known about the project, not even which characters it might involve, or whether Tarantino intends to use any of the actors from the recent J.J. Abrams-produced films. Tarantino did confirm one detail to Empire, "It's an R-rated movie." Every previous Star Trek film has been rated PG-13 or lower.

Trekmovie.com has Tarantino's quotes from the Empire interview, and some details about the history of the project here: https://trekmovie.com/2019/06/10/quentin-tarantino-gives-an-update-on-his-star-trek-film/

Repi said...

It sounds like Pine playing Kirk is a dealbreaker for Tarantino though.

Tarantino contradicts himself in the interview. He doesn't like the Kelvin timeline, but he compliments Pine and Quinto for getting the Kirk-Spock dynamic right. It seems to me he wants to make a film in the prime timeline, but with at least some of the Kelvin timeline cast.

To make that happen, they'll have to figure out Pine's salary demands. Presumably part of the problem with the last project was that they had to fit in Chris Hemsworth's salary as well. That probably won't be the case with Tarantino's project. It's also possible Paramount may be more flexible with Tarantino's budget. It'll be hard for them to say they want Tarantino and then balk at whatever cast he wants.

That is my assessment also.

Not sure that I'd want to see this one. Because Tarantino. Yes, I watched and enjoyed Kill Bill back in the day...but I've since grown less comfortable with the director's work and conduct since then.

I know what you mean. The only two movies of his that I have seen are Inglorious Bs and The Hateful Eight and both had troublesome parts and even if removed really weren't that good.

But we don't have to wait until Star Trek, he has a movie out now, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, which some find mesmerizing as a film and is a subject I find interesting, I am reserving a decision on seeing even on small screen, based on the sentiments that you echo.
