The film's script will be penned by either Mark L Smith, Lindsey Beer or Drew Pearce, with Tarantino as the director.

Meanwhile, Quentin Tarantino has reportedly received permission for his Star Trek movie to be R-rated in order to fulfil his typically dark vision for the film. The frontrunner is Smith, who wrote the The Revenant.

Considering that Ryan Reynolds is going to be voice Detective Pikachu in a live-action film and now it looks like we'll have an R-rated Star Trek directed by Quentin Tarantino in the next couple of years, nothing surprises us anymore. The most memorable aspect of Tarantino's movies has always been the relationships between characters and the way his dialogue makes exposition seem interesting.

Reports say that one of the three writers will be locked in quickly. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction.


Patrick Stewart recently said that only a "brilliant idea" could bring him back to Star Trek.

The last film, "Star Trek Beyond", didn't fare as well as its predecessors at the box office, making just $158 million in North America.

Stewart identified a variety of reasons why he adores Tarantino's work, but one of the key things the director does is command your attention in every scene. 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. Tarantino usually takes quite a bit of time between projects, but thus far everything about this Star Trek movie has been atypical for the Oscar-winning writer/director.
