Quentin Tarantino And JJ Abrams Are Making A STAR TREK Movie Together

Tarantino- STar Trek

While it is exciting that there is some momentum behind a fourth Kelvin-verse Star Trek movie, it is worth keeping in mind that Tarantino's pitch is just that. While we're tempted to tick off the usual boxes - expletive-laden dialogue that addresses as much pop culture as it does plot points, eye-popping violence - Tarantino's usual calling cards would probably be out of place in a Star Trek film.

Abrams, who has taken over directing the yet-unnamed Star Wars: Episode IX, was reportedly so impressed by Tarantino's pitch that he's working on putting together a writer's room to work with Tarantino to develop a script around his idea, with the end goal of Tarantino in the director's chair on the next Star Trek movie, with Abrams producing. The director's films tend to not only perform commercially, his latest three films all took in multiple Oscar nominations and Tarantino won for the Django Unchained screenplay. No other development on that project has been made public.

This is not the first time Tarantino's name has come up related to the Star Trek film franchise.

Facebook debuts new Messenger app for kids 6 and up
Also, unlike the regular version of Facebook, children under 13 on the app won't have Facebook accounts associated with their app. But the technology giant today announced a new version of the service that could bump its active user base up considerably.

But clearly, adding Tarantino's cache to the Trek franchise would be a major coup for Paramount. The obvious one would be "City on the Edge of Forever", but there's a reason everyone would go to that.

So far, no one is commenting on the record about the meeting, which isn't surprising considering any plans for Tarantino to direct a Star Trek movie are in the earliest stages at best. But perhaps the director's 2015 Nerdist interview provides the most tea leaves for present day reading.

Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence are among the actresses he is said to have approached to play Sharon Tate - the pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski - who was stabbed to death by members of the Manson Family in August 1969.
