Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek Movie Idea Might Become Real
Very few directors are as revered among cinephiles as Quentin Tarantino. The director of such hit films as Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, and the Kill Bill films has proven himself to be one of the great auteurs of the medium. Tarantino is well known for his original film ideas, but his partiality to on-screen violence has made many to wonder just how he might handle a big-budget action film based on a well known pre-existing property. Well, now it appears Tarantino might have his creative phasers set for this particular target, as he reportedly has a Star Trek movie idea that might get produced by Paramount.
According to a new article released by Deadline, Tarantino has developed a “great idea” for a new film based on the classic Sci-Fi series. Tarantino has reportedly shared his idea with J.J. Abrams, who directed the first two recent Star Trek reboot films starring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, and will be given the opportunity to further craft the potential film’s story with a group of writers. If all comes out well, the film would be produced by Abrams and Paramount, who released the recent Star Trek movies and retains the exclusive film rights for the series.
Tarantino currently is in the middle of developing his next film for Sony based on the Manson murder spree from the 1960s, but if this Star Trek idea takes off, it certainly will bring the series to a new frontier, likely with many bloodied red shirt victims.
