I love my Tarantino and I love my Star Trek, but I'm not sure I love them together.

Interesting, but I can't see QT directing a movie that he didn't write himself.

Let it be a remake of Undiscovered Country and strand Kirk and McCoy on an ice planet and they can just chat the entire movie in a cabin. Maybe have Sam Jackson have a cameo as a slave trader.

This was my thought.

I donít think it would be a disaster. I think the main thing about it thatís odd is that it could be his last film if he sticks by what he said and retires after his next two. He has mentioned being a fan of Star Trek in the past though and once said heíd prefer directing a Star Trek film over a Star Wars film. I could see a Tarantino Trek film being somewhat similar to when he directed those episodes of CSI. Basically follow whatís been set up but add a few of his trademarks.

Give me some Quintin-licious dialogue and hard-core action, and my butt is there.

Did you see a sign on the front of my house that said "Dead Klingon Storage?"

Tarantino did a script polish of the movie Crimson Tide. The Star Trek-related dialogue in that movie is courtesy of QT, so yeah, he's a definite fan.

I'd still be interested in seeing George Kirk return, but I'm always down to see other creative forces take on Trek.

Been watching all the films in order the past few weeks, most for the first time. Actually really impressed by how well they hold up other than the first half of the first one. Anyway, the characterization throughout these is really strong and the action can be excellent at times so seems like a good fit for QT. Would be really exciting to see what he does with the universe.

Yeah I really wanted to see that too, maybe he was told of that idea and he expanded on it?

Will it be R rated? It's got to be R rated to be a Tarantino flick. Phasers can now be set for bullets.

Quentin Tarantinoís ĎStar Trekí Will Be R-Rated: ĎThe Revenantís Mark L. Smith Frontrunner Scribe

EXCLUSIVE: After Deadline this week revealed that Quentin Tarantino pitched a Star Trek film to JJ Abrams and Paramount, the whole thing is moving at warp speed. Tarantino met for hours in a writers room with Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce. They kicked around ideas and one of them will get the job. Iím hearing the frontrunner is Smith, who wrote The Revenant. The film will most certainly go where no Star Trek has gone before: Tarantino has required it to be R rated, and Paramount and Abrams agreed to that condition. Most mega budget tent poles restrict the film to a PG-13 rating in an effort to maximize the audience. That was the reason that Guillermo Del Toroís $150 million At The Mountains of Madness didnít go forward at Universal, even though Tom Cruise was ready to star. The exception to this rule was Foxís Deadpool, but that film started out with modest ambitions before it caught on and became the biggest R rated film ever.

My mind is boggling.

Obviously (if this is true), Paramount has noticed the success of the MA rated Discovery, and I'm totally down with it.
