When people think about Star Trek, they think about space exploration and even a few battles. When people think about Quentin Tarantino, they think about witty dialogue, foul language and graphic violence. So what exactly do they have to do with one another? One thing that very few people would expect is Quentin Tarantino directing a Star Trek film. Well, there is news. Quentin Tarantino is in talks for directing the next Star Trek film. Another bit of news that can really blow minds is that it is going to be R rated if Quentin Tarantino directs it.
There may be a bit of disbelief about this development. However, it seems as if Paramount and J.J. Abrams is on board for this. Therefore, it is likely to happen after Quentin Tarantino releases his 9th film which is going to deal with the Manson Murders. Now, an R rated Star Trek may not be as far fetched as one might think. The Star Trek films are filled with some rather intense moments. Star Trek VI in particular needed some edits in effects in order to avoid the R rating. The only thing is the question as to whether Quentin Tarantino’s style is a good fit for Star Trek.
Another thing that seems to to be revealed is that this upcoming film might not center around the rebooted TOS crew, but may instead focus on the next generation crew. The only thing is what direction Quentin Tarantino is going to take. One question that remains is whether he is going to adapt an episode into a film. There are ideas of sending the Star Trek crew to the past which has been done at least twice in a film. Quentin Tarantino could also keep the action in the 24 century and add blood spurts to phaser blasts along with some profanity.
