Has An Idea For A Star Trek Film

  • The pair are discussing a story idea with plans to assemble a writers room

Quentin Tarantino is reportedly in talks to work on a new Star Trek movie - and it could well be his last. Abrams presumably liked the story pitch, and they now plan to assemble a writers room, who will hear Tarantino's treatment and start writing a script.

Turning A Classic Episode Into A Movie?

While we're tempted to tick off the usual boxes - expletive-laden dialogue that addresses as much pop culture as it does plot points, eye-popping violence - Tarantino's usual calling cards would probably be out of place in a Star Trek film. And he's shared that idea with fellow director J.J. Abrams (currently working on "Star Wars: Episode IX"). "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some fantastic, awesome stuff". In the case of Tarantino, however, it's hard to think of a writer-director with more of a specific, honed sensibility.

Director Bryan Singer fired from Freddie Mercury biopic movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
Per T.H.R., Singer was "absent during production on several occasions", and did not return to the set after Thanksgiving break. Although a new director has yet to be confirmed, the movie is still slated for release on Christmas 2018.

Deadline's quoted sources who said Tarantino "has come up with a great idea" for a new instalment set in the re-booted Trek universe.

Making things even more uncertain for another Star Trek film, Paramount recently announced that they have ended their financing deal with China's Huahua Media, a deal meant to finance a quarter of the films that Paramount produced over the next three years.

Russian Federation banned from Pyeongchang Winter Games over doping
According to The New York Times , Russian officials had threatened a boycott if they were barred from the Olympics . The IOC also suspended the Russian Olympic Committee until at least the closing ceremony in South Korea .

If the project comes to fruition, it will be the first time that Tarantino - best known for his violent dramas Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs - has worked on a mainstream film franchise. However, he has served as a for-hire director in television before, helming episodes of both ER and CSI.
