Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' movie to be R-rated, reports say

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!

If you've been following the movie news in the past few days, you've probably heard about the utterly freakish tale of the JJ Abrams-produced and Quentin Tarantino-involved Star Trek movie, which went from idle fanboy dream to on the studio fast-track in the span of about three days.

A-list screenwriters gathered together by Abrams to pitch their takes on Tarantino's story include Mark L. Smith (The Revenant, The Hole), Lindsey Beer (the upcoming Chaos Walking and Godzilla Vs. Kong) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Sherlock Holmes 3, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation). This was a condition of Tarantino being involved, and one that both Abrams and Paramount agreed to. While Tarantino hasn't been confirmed as the Star Trek director, we may just see him journey to the final frontier if everything pans out.

Once the writer is locked, the plan is to write the screenplay based on Tarantino's idea while Tarantino is off filming his next film, centered on the Manson summer of 1969 and starring Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate.


Now, Tarantino has been pretty adamant about the fact that he's only making 10 films and then he's retiring.

The Star Trek franchise has been overshadowed by Star Wars recently, but Paramount Pictures is determined to make the franchise a hit. Would Quentin Tarantino really go out directing a blockbuster written by someone other than himself? The series' third film, Star Trek Beyond, which opened on July 22, 2016 made over $343 million worldwide.

Regardless, this whole thing is kind of insane and it's moving really fast.

An R-rated Star Trek movie would be rather interesting as we can guess the language and violence-factor would be amped up in addition to the possibility of adult (nude) scenes.
