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.

An R-rated Star Trek might just be the boost the franchise needs. Have to wonder what the budget will be. And Deadpool's success certainly played a part.

Blerg.

Discovery didn't do much with their TV MA rating.

The F-bomb was poorly structured and Tyler's PTSD flashbacks didn't need to show Klingon boobs to get the point across.

An R rated Star Trek doesn't really excite me much, if anything I wonder if it will "try" too hard that any particular violence or language will just stand out. The property doesn't really need to be R rated in my opinion.

If it has to be rated R I hope since they already made Sulu gay we get a long scene of him getting it on with his husband to piss off the crazies.

Tarantino is one of my top 5 directors of all time and Iím always down for ĎRí rated movies but after years and years of mostly family friendly Star Trek movies it just doesnít seem right to me. I also havenít watched Discovery so I have no idea how it plays made for more mature audiences.

It was a two hour season finale. Itís a decent episode even though I didnít watch a ton of the show. I actually have it on Blu-ray as it was released on its own.

I'm curious. Would Tarantino get story credit if he ends up directing?

He supposedly is the one who pitched the idea and now they're giving the screenplay duties to the guy who wrote The Revenant.

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

I've got a FB friend I met through a forum years ago who works in the industry and is a trusted source. They didn't outright confirm this, but made several statements to the effect that it's not impossible that it could happen.

I think Paramount wants an attention grabber and they're willing to go with a name like Tarantino to get it.


I wish Paramount would do *something* with this franchise. Watching the Infinity War trailer, and seeing all those groups of heroes brought together really makes me want to see a Trek cinematic universe.

And Tarantino doing Star Trek sounds ridiculous but who knows

Sequels were both great, IMO. 3rd was better than the 2nd, also IMO.

DECEMBER 08, 2017 8:06am PT by Alex Ritman

The actor said he'd "embrace" an opportunity to return as the USS Enterprise's legendary captain should Tarantino's newly revealed project come together.

Could Star Trek fans see a return of one of its most famous faces?

Following the news that Quentin Tarantino was working on a new idea for the franchise alongside J.J. Abrams, with plans to direct, Patrick Stewart has thrown an unlikely hat back into the intergalactic ring.

"People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?' And I cannot think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about," the iconic actor told The Hollywood Reporter, speaking from the sidelines of the Dubai International Film Festival, where he received an honorary award.

"But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction. So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr Tarantino, I would embrace it."

Stewart said one thing was sure about a Tarantino-directed Star Trek installment: it would be gripping.

"The one thing that characterizes all of his movies is that frame by frame, it always challenges, always demands your attention, always demands a very kind of open and generous response to what he does," he said. "I also love his sense of humor as a filmmaker. So yes, he would be my first choice."

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

Please please please bring back Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard once more. That would be amazing to see one last time. One of my favorite actors and my favorite of the Trek shows. Iím wondering because Tarantino cited the TNG episode Yesterdayís Enterprise as one of his favorites. Maybe he could draw some inspiration from that to bring back the Enterprise D crew back in some capacity or at least Patrick Stewart.
