I’ve actually only seen either five or six Tarantino films (depending on how we’re scoring KILL BILL), but the bit in the middle — you’ll know the bit I’m talking about — had me wheezing with laughter anyway. It’s unfair to Tarantino; and yet, it really, really isn’t. It’s also simultaneously a pastiche of, critique about, and paean to the director. It feels… appropriate.
So it would appear. And since he’s taking his ‘ten movies and out’ thing, Star Trek would be his last one:
[Quentin] Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is his ninth directorial effort, which means it will be his penultimate effort should he stick to this 10-film plan before retirement. The director’s GQ interview had many fans wondering how Tarantino will choose to end his directorial career and asking whether or not his much-discussed “Star Trek” movie would be his final filmmaking project. Tarantino successfully pitched an R-rated “Star Trek” to producer J.J. Abrams and Paramount and has written a script. The studio has yet to officially greenlight the project, but if they do and if Tarantino decides to direct that will probably be his last movie.
Director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight) has an idea for a new Star Trek movie and J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Beyond, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is putting together a writers room for the project, according to Deadline. Sources say that Tarantino told his idea to Abrams, and writers will be gathered to work on the idea. If it comes to fruition, Tarantino could direct with Abrams producing at Paramount. There is currently no confirmation on the Star Trek movie idea from Paramount or from Tarantino.
