Tarantino’s Star Trek Movie Just Keeps on Getting Weirder

SHARE:

One of the weirdest pieces of news to come out of 2017 was Quentin Tarantino pitching a Star Trek movie - and possibly even wanting to get behind the camera on it. The latest development on the news is that he has managed to convince Paramount to make the movie R-rated. Insiders were putting rumours out there that Mark L. Smith, whose writing credits include The Revenant, was the top choice of the studio to pen the screenplay. The rumours were clearly true, as it has now been confirmed that Smith is on board. He’ll get to work on the script, while Tarantino continues to work on his Charles Manson project. The latter project has yet to be named but features the 1969 Manson family murders as a backdrop in the film, which is in the midst of pursuing major acting talent after Sony won a hard-fought bidding war over distribution rights. Tarantino has reportedly approached Margot Robbie about the idea of playing Sharon Tate, a woman who was murdered by the Mansons. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, and Brad Pitt are all looking to make the cast.

Dialogue or no dialogue? That is the question! If Tarantino does indeed direct the movie, it will be one of a limited number of occasions that he would direct a movie that he didn’t write. With Smith’s script for The Revenant being short on dialogue compared with Tarantino’s verbose style (the director has been known to pen 165-page screenplays of mostly dialogue), the movie should make for a very interesting result. This is likely to be especially true when you throw in producer J.J. Abrams’ own unique style. The strange gets stranger Star Trek has always had a reputation for being a bit on the strange side: strange actors, strange uniforms, strange fans. And now it boasts a strange filmmaking partnership. Still, it hasn’t stopped the franchise from being one of the most beloved in popular culture; not just in the movies, of course - its roots are steeped in the enormously popular TV show, which has spawned an endless amount of spin-offs. It has also made its mark with a plethora of merchandise, from mugs and toys to board games and puzzles. Numerous video games have also been released, including 2017’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew. There are even Star Trek online casino games. For instance, Oddschecker features casino sites with free bets and no deposits, such as 888casino, which include a Star Trek slot game. And now we have one of the most exciting and strangest teams in recent movie memory so we can certainly expect lots more news to come out of the project in the coming weeks and months.

Tarantino’s swansong? Tarantino had previously vowed to make no more than 10 films. Star Trek would be his 10th so whether he has made his final film or not remains to be seen. If you’re still trying to wrap your brain around this project, you’re not the only one. Tarantino is an odd choice for the latest big-screen instalment in the classic Gene Roddenberry franchise, and details remain somewhat thin. Long before news of the project came to light, however, Tarantino confessed that he was a huge fan. Tarantino also clearly has appeal at the box office - something which Paramount could use. With sci-fi being dominated by Disney of late, via the endless Marvel and Star Wars movies, Star Trek is Paramount’s key franchise. Deadpool was evidence that an R-rated version of superhero fare is capable of pulling in the big numbers so Tarantino’s Star Trek could be just what Paramount need.
