Patrick Stewart Is Down For that Quentin Tarantino 'Star Trek' Movie

We also talk about two projects mired in controversy - 20th Century Fox's Freddie Mercury movie Bohemian Rhapsody, which saw Dexter Fletcher step in to replace embattled director Bryan Singer, and Paramount's Annihilation, which has producers Scott Rudin and David Ellison at each other's throats.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Patrick Stewart said that he would return to play Jean-Luc Picard in Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek movie.

Stewart said that though he had no interest in reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard, he would change his mind for the opportunity to work with Tarantino.

The Yorkshire-born actor told The Hollywood Reporter: "People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?' And I can not think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about". The veteran actor shared that he admires Tarantino's films and would very much like to be a part of one.

"O$3 ne of my dreams is to work with Tarantino".

The 77-year-old actor added that even if he personally is not involved, he is still intrigued by what Tarantino's version of "Star Trek" could look like.

The last Star Trek film Stewart features in was Nemesis, which brought to an end the Next Generation era of films. "So yes, he would be my first choice".

The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith is the frontrunner to write the script from Tarantino's story concept. But if the idea of Patrick Stewart appearing in an R-rated Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie appeals to you, you can take solace in the fact that it appeals to Patrick Stewart as well.

The plan (as we understand it) is for Tarantino to go off and shoot his still-untitled Charles Manson movie, then jump into directing Star Trek as his tenth and final film.
