It'll be a Mirror Universe story. George Kirk is still alive there. They can have all the violence and depravity over there that they could never show on TV.

You could get an R-rating by putting in an F-bomb and ramping up the violence (which Discovery has already done) and it would be just fine.

I've never been enamored with Tarantino as a director but I'm all for a new take on Trek!

re: Star Trek 4 -- news, rumors, etc.

Personally I view an R rated Trek the same way as I would an R rated Star Wars or even what they did with Discovery. It's a sad and cheap way to try and get more business. Personally I have a love hate with the reboot JJ did back in 09 it was a great movie but it lacked cohesiveness with what came before it. I liked the last few movies in the reboot and I see no reason to change up direction and go for an R rating. I can now enjoy the new movies as a series seperate from the Shatner stuff or Next Generation but it took some time to feel that way.

I love Tarintions early work RD/PF but I really wouldn't enjoy seeing that blended into this universe. At best I would watch this on HBO but I wouldnt pony up for movie tickets.

I hope Mirror Kirk cuts off one of Spock's ears with a straight razor while jamming to "Stuck in the Middle with You."

Hasn't it been determined QT is only providing the story idea but isn't writing (obviously) or directing?

I'll only see it if QT is writing the whole script and directing!

Really? I had the opposite reaction. I really didn't like how different the remake was and had some real issues with the design and everything until, what I thought was a brilliant move, in that they made it an alternate timeline so all the changes were justifiable.

I don't care how this film plays out, as long as Welshie replaces Scotty.

Is this going to be the fourth nuTrek movie, or something completely different? Nobody has really said much about the cast or what era it will take place in, though I've heard Patrick Stewart might put in an appearance.

re: Star Trek 4 -- news, rumors, etc.

Iím curious too what Tarantino has in mind if he is indeed doing this film. I think the Abrams cast would be the logical route to go and maybe work in cameos from other actors from previous versions of Trek. If heís getting inspiration from Yesterdayís Enterprise that could easily work as that episode involved time travel. Heís cited that as one of his favorite episodes so thatís why I kind of think it might be along those lines.

re: Star Trek 4 -- news, rumors, etc.

Star Trek shows are pretty plot heavy, can Tarantino pull this together in under a 4 hour cut?

Seriously though, I have had some issues with his last couple of movies but I think something like this could be the opportunity to sort of focus his art and get him out of his self indulgent pretentious box he has built for himself.

Ultimately cant see it happening, but I would be there day 1

While we wait for the next official Star Trek movie, we have this Trek related work of art to look forward to.

Just watched Star Trek 09 again last night. I love that I'm excited about new ST Films.

Well, who knows.

It's just the thought of Tarantino dialog coming out of the mouths of Kirk and Spock bothers me a little...

re: Star Trek 4 -- news, rumors, etc.

I just saw a story about a week ago that there's 2 competing scripts to be the potential 4th movie.

The story with Hemsworth returning as George Kirk and Tarantino's apparently R-rated version with his writer.

Hmmm, I wonder which one of these is most likely to get made...
