Star Trek: Quentin Tarantino pushing for R-rated movie

Is Quentin Tarantino Going to Direct a Star Trek Film? Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' Will Be R-Rated: 'The Revenant's Mark L. Smith Frontrunner Scribe
Freda Brock | 08 December, 2017, 09:35

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's version of "Star Trek" will reportedly be R-rated, allowing it to be screened for those under 17 only with an accompanying parent or adult guardian. Abrams, who sparked to the pitch and quickly made this official. The big news is that the project is being pitched as R-rated and both Paramount and Abrams have agreed to releasing the film as such.

The report also says screenwriters Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Lindsey Beer (the upcoming Kingkiller Chronicle), and Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) are in the running to pen the script, with Smith as the apparent frontrunner. Abrams liked it, Paramount seems to like it, and Tarantino has now presented it to a writers' room of scribes, and they seem to like it too. This was apparently Tarantino's condition for letting Paramount use his idea, and it's likely that the decision to take this tone came in large part thanks to the success of films like Deadpool, Logan, and IT, all of which have proven that gory content won't necessarily preclude a movie from enjoying a large box office taking. Are you excited for what's sure to be a Star Trek unlike anything we've ever seen before?

He accused the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries and the United States of undermining security in Eastern Europe. One observer, an American, was killed in April 2017 in eastern Ukraine when his vehicle hit a landmine.

There is, of course, no guarantee that QT will step behind the camera - given his stated plan to make just 10 films, ending with a blockbuster he didn't write might not fit with that.

In the more than five decades since the original series premiered, "Star Trek" movies and TV shows have been a decidedly family friendly affair. Would Quentin Tarantino really go out directing a blockbuster written by someone other than himself? The legendary writer-director is famous for his lengthy dialogue scenes and over-the-top violence and has never directed a film that wasn't R-rated, which makes this pairing one of the most interesting in recent memory.
