    Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams Teaming Up for New STAR TREK Movie

    [​IMG]

    Quentin Tarantino is ready to explore strange new worlds. The filmmaker has a pitch for a Star Trek film, and he has shared his vision with J.J. Abrams, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Tarantino and Abrams have plans to bring together a writers room to develop a film at Star Trek studio Paramount. Tarantino has an eye to direct the potential project.

    Abrams rebooted the franchise with 2009's Star Trek and also directed 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness, before pivoting to Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He remains a producer on the Star Trek franchise even as he readies 2019's Star Wars: Episode IX.

    Paramount previously stated it was developing a fourth Star Trek film to star Chris Hemsworth as Captain Kirk's (Chris Pine) father, but no director has been attached and it's unclear where this development leaves the project. The latest installment, Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond, was well-liked by critics but earned just $343.4 million worldwide, the lowest in the rebooted universe.

    In a 2015 Nerdist podcast interview, Tarantino revealed he'd be more likely to direct a Star Trek film over a Star Wars film, noting he was a big fan of the original series.

    "The only thing that limited them was their '60s budget and eight-day shooting schedule," he said. "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some amazing, amazing stuff." Tarantino called the time-travel focused Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" as one of the best Trek episodes ever written.

    I hope Chris Pine is Captain Kirk until he needs a hair piece and a girdle.

    The new films are huge homages to the original series and no one does homages better than Tarantino, so it might work. It probably won’t, but it might.

    Gotta admit, this has me kinda excited. Wish it wasn't a franchise movie, though; one off original would have been even better
