If Quentin Tarantino’s Trek becomes a reality, things are moving fast for this movie, he wants it to be an R rated movie. A script is being worked on based on his idea. When the script is done it is speculated that if he likes it he may direct the movie.
What do you think of an R rated Trek? Would it be R based on language (which would seem very out of character for a Trek movie)? Can you see Kirk dropping F bombs? Or would this movie more then likely be R based on a dark violent Trek which also seems a bit out of Trek character. It all seems exciting yet weird at the same time. The last Trek movie didn’t meet expectations so the studio and Abrams are looking at ways to breath new life into the series. An R Tarantino movie would be in a bold new direction. However, R movies typically don’t make as much money so it would seem a bit risky for such a franchise.
Tarantino still has to finish up the current movie he is working on so as fast as all this is moving Tarantino wouldn’t be able to direct another movie for probably close to a year or more making the chances of him directing less likely to happen but you never know. The fact it is even being brought up means there still is that slight chance it could happen.
What do you think? I think it is all interesting but still a bit early to get too excited. Tarantino or Abrams have yet to make any announcements so until they say something I’d wait on getting too excited. With all this buzz though I’d expect something to be said soon to confirm or deny the rumors.
