Quentin Tarantino Has Reportedly Pitched a New Star Trek Movie Idea

Quentin Tarantino is already preparing to direct the film he just started working on with Sony Pictures but, according to Deadline, Quentin Tarantino has come up with an idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount. After sharing his idea with JJ Abrams, who is already working on Star Wars Episode IX, the duo is planning to assemble a writers room of writers who will hear Tarantino’s idea and put together a movie. If it all works out, Tarantino may direct a Star Trek movie with Abrams producing it.

While Tarantino has made a career making up his original films, many people have wondered what a franchise would like if Tarantino directed the project. He has only done that on television, twice directing episodes of CSI and once on an episode of ER. He has spoken about the idea of leading a James Bond movie, but the hard part of something like that is getting the rights holders to give him extensive creative control on the production.

As Deadline reported last month, Tarantino agreed to make his next movie for Sony Pictures. The untitled film is an ensemble production that centers around a period in Los Angeles during the Manson murder spree in the late 60’s. He has asked Margot Robbie to play Sharon Tate, and has been discussing two great male lead roles with Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brad Pitt, however, he has not yet finished casting the production.
