Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams Team on ‘Star Trek' Pitch

Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams Team Up for 'Star Trek' Movie

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 chose to convene a writer's room in order to develop the project.

Quentin Tarantino has said that he would like to direct the new Star Trek film and has already got ideas for what he would do. If the script is approved by both parties, Tarantino may direct the project, which Abrams will produce.

Although details on the story are now being kept under wraps, the website claims the two men struck up a partnership after Tarantino came up with a "great idea" for a new Star Trek film. Would a Star Trek project really be his tenth and final film? If the story is greenlit, it is not clear that Tarantino, now busy with pre-production of his film, which is about the Manson family, would have director or writer credits on the project. He's shared the idea with Abrams, and the two are putting together a writer's room to begin working on Tarantino's story. However, Tarantino needs to work on a franchise and a studio that would allow him creative liberty, as you could imagine.

Quentin Tarantino has his phasers set for fun.

Paramount Pictures previously stated it was developing a fourth "Star Trek" film.

Has An Idea For A Star Trek Film

According to the showbiz news site, Tarantino is keen to take the helm of the Star Trek franchise and has come up with a storyline for the next movie. " He mentioned two episodes in particular: 1967's "The City on the Edge of Forever" from the classic series, and the 1990 Next Generation episode, "Yesterday's Enterprise". The film is produced by David Heyman, Georgia Kacandes, Shannon McIntosh, and Tarantino.

Abrams rebooted the Star Trek franchise in 2009 and he also directed Star Trek Into Darkness.

Abrams kick-started this new trilogy of Star Wars films with 2015's The Force Awakens, and will now return to conclude it in time for a December 2019 release date.

At first, it may seem odd to consider Tarantino directing a Star Trek film.
