Quentin Tarantino Plans To Direct Star Trek Movie; J.J. Abrams To Produce

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is reportedly working on his own original idea for a Star Trek movie which he plans to direct as well. Star Trek reboot director J.J. Abrams will be producing the film.

Director Quentin Tarantino has come up with a brilliant idea to make a Star Trek movie. As per Deadline, Tarantino along with J.J. Abrams plans to get writers to listen to Tarantino’s ideas who will then work on the screenplay for the film.

Getting someone else to work on the script is a good idea for both Tarantino and Abrams since both have a hectic schedule ahead. Tarantino is all set to start shooting for his next drama movie set in Los Angeles around the time of the Charles Manson murders. The film is produced by Paramount film company (owned by Sony). Star Trek is also produced by Paramount, and so Tarantino is likely to receive support from them to make the movie.

As for Abrams, he will next start directing Star Wars: Episode IX. Abrams had directed the Star Trek reboot, released in the year 2013. He also worked on its sequel, Into Darkness. Soon after that, Justin Lin took over as director Star Trek Beyond, which hit the theaters in 2016.

We do not know as yet if the new Star Trek project would be a continuation of Abrams’ franchise, or it would be a fresh standalone/reboot. Tarantino being given a clean slate to begin with would be an interesting possibility because he is someone who loves the art of compelling storytelling.

The last movie of Tarantino to hit the theaters was 2015’s The Hateful Eight. He had announced in 2016 that he would be directing only two more films before retiring. Since he is already working on a movie with Paramount, Star Trek could be his final film.

The eight films that Quentin Tarantino has directed include Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Django Unchained, and The Hateful Eight. Tarantino even won Best Writing Oscars for Django Unchained and Pulp Fiction.
