Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Confirmed To Be Rated-R

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Confirmed To 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. Not because Smith isn't a good fit for the project or that he's a particularly bad writer, but that it'll be the first time that QT will be potentially directing a film that he himself didn't write. Smith is reportedly the frontrunner to get the gig, which would be significant as the first person to co-write a screenplay for a Tarantino-directed film since Roger Avary co-wrote Pulp Fiction.

The report also says screenwriters Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Lindsey Beer (the upcoming Kingkiller Chronicle), and Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) are in the running to pen the script, with Smith as the apparent frontrunner.

This isn't surprising since Tarantino is known for featuring stylish violence in his films.

That being said, R rated films have managed to make a lot of money recently. But now even more details about Tarantino's Star Trek have arrived, including the revelation that the film will be R-Rated, per Tarantino's stipulations.

Deadline reports that one of the three writers will be chosen for the project quickly.

It would be interesting to speculate on what a Star Trek movie would look like, with Quentin Tarantino's unique style of filmmaking. The director appeared on the Nerdist podcast to explain what fascinated him about the franchise.

In the past, Tarantino has stressed his interest in making a Star Trek film. "I actually think that is not only one of the great space stories, but the way it dealt with the mythology of the whole thing - that actually could bare a two hour treatment". "But what ends up happening is - because they screwed up with the timeline, everything changes". We'll let you know as more information is available, but for now, steel yourself against the tide of angry Trekkies taking to their message boards to say that their beloved series should never, ever be R-Rated. "And the thing about it is, it turns out that the Klingons and the humans on earth have been having this hundred year war that's been going on, and it's just the bloodiest war imaginable in the history of any universe".

It sounds like Tarantino will most-likely involve some kind of Klingon bloodbath in his film.
