Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek movie pitch is heading to the writers’ room over at Paramount, as the Hateful Eight director’s pitch, reportedly delivered to JJ Abrams, seemingly went well.
Second, Tarantino has said on numerous occasions that he plans to retire from directing films after his next two pictures.
When it comes to directing movies, Quentin Tarantino has a very unique style that he brings to the table that sometimes isn’t necessarily for everyone. If Quentin fails, then the producer of the project will be J. J. Abrams.
He might be busy working on his new Charles Manson film with Sony, but Tarantino has already got his eyes set on the next Starship Enterprise.
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.
But clearly, adding Tarantino’s cache to the Trek franchise would be a major coup for Paramount. And now he has put his money where his mouth is, having developed a new idea for the potential future of the franchise, which he pitched to director J.J. Further, the director is now working on getting a distributor for what is supposedly the penultimate film in his career, based around Charles Manson and the Family murders. But since Star Trek Beyond drew a disappointing box office, perhaps the studio would be – and frankly, should be – far more interested in whatever Tarantino may have in mind. That doesn’t mean we’re going to see a Star Trek movie in the style of Pulp Fiction.
In 2015, Tarantino said he was a fan of the original TV series.
But a surprise name may now be in the frame for the next Star Trek film.
