First, what the hell will a Tarantino-helmed Star Trek movie look like?
High aesthetic, foul-mouth dialogue auteur Quentin Tarantino reportedly has an idea for a new Star Trek movie, and he's already approached Trek cinema careholder JJ Abrams.
Deadline reported if the screenwriters like the pitch, Tarantino could be directing the movie and Abrams would produce the film. Handing off writing duties would appear to be a good fit for both filmmakers given their current schedules: Tarantino is about to start shooting his next movie, a drama set in Los Angeles around the time of the Charles Manson murders, while Abrams is diving into Star Wars: Episode IX. Should it work out, Tarantino may also take on directing duties, with Abrams - who is now prepping Star Wars: Episode IX - serving as producer. The excitement about this particular project wouldn't be the impact that Trek would have on Tarantino; it's what Tarantino would have on Trek.

After last year's Star Trek Beyond, Paramount Pictures said it was planning to make a fourth movie in its reboot of the beloved series. In the case of Tarantino, however, it's hard to think of a writer-director with more of a specific, honed sensibility. "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some fantastic, awesome stuff". During an 2015 interview on the Nerdist podcast, Tarantino spoke favorably about the cast of the new films, which includes Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock.
The film, which was slated to be released on August 9, 2019, the 50th anniversary of actress Sharon Tate's death, has no set cast.
