Patrick Stewart Wants to Return to 'Star Trek' if Quentin Tarantino Directs

Patrick Stewart Wants to Return to 'Star Trek' if Quentin Tarantino Directs

Deadline reported on Thursday, December 7, that Tarantino has already spoken to producer JJ Abrams and distributor Paramount Pictures about his idea for a new Star Trek film. In addition to this news, The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to pen the script. Folks, this continues to seem very, very weird. Now Deadline has not only brought word about who Abrams has put together for the writers room, but also that Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek will be rated R!

In fact, working with Tarantino has been a longtime dream for Stewart, and having it be part of the Star Trek universe would be an wonderful bonus. "But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino".

There's no guarantee Tarantino will direct this movie, but the idea is for the winning scribe to work on the screenplay while the Inglourious Basterds filmmaker shoots his next movie next summer. His next film, which is set around the Charles Manson murders, is set at Sony and was given an August 2019 release date, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the murder of Sharon Tate and four others on August 9, 1969.

Paramount is clearly banking on the fact Deadpool broke somewhat of a barrier in R-rated films landing major box office numbers, which has kept many a project PG-13 in the past.

When it comes to scripting, Smith's style would fit with Tarantino's vision.

"People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?'" Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday (08Dec17). Tarantino has previously indicated that the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, "Yesterday's Enterprise", is one of his favorites.
