Picking up a lot of steam. Paramount was waiting for the promotion of Discovery to end to avoid confusing people.

The hardcore Trekkies will no doubt go ape shit over this.

This is ****ing wonderful. I remember Tarantino discussed the possibility of doing a Trek film on a Nerdist podcast once

Tarantino directing a Star Trek movie!??

Wow...interesting.

His movies are always character driven and features excellent dialog between the characters that typically culminates with a sequence that's significant to his story...

I would absolutely pay to see a Tarantino-Trek movie on the big screen...

honestly, this sounds like a bad mix. i simply can't imagine Quentin being a good fit... and I'm a HUGE fan of his work.

i don't want to see a non-Quentin Tarantino, Quentin Tarantino movie.

I don't want to see Wes Anderson adapt to anything when i watch a Wes Anderson movie, i want to watch Wes Anderson do his specific thing. Same applies to Quentin; he has a distinct style and what's the point of having Quentin Tarantino direct a movie if it's not his style... may as well just get literally ANYONE else if he's just going to "adapt".

I'm no Trekkie, but I know enough to know that Quentin's style and Star Trek do not mix.

I'm up for it. Some people can't think outside the box.

Will Tarantino make this R? Tarantino loves his violence.

This is true and false. His style 100% does not mix with Trek, the actual Trek. The tv shows. His style does fit in more with this Nu Trek stuff. Which is essentially Star Wars, but with Star Trek characters.

He'd have no place directing an episode of TNG, for example.

laughing out loud

I can't see Tarantino doing a continuation of the Abrams reboot films because it would bring with it too much baggage. But if he does a complete re-imagining I would be highly interested in seeing his take. I've always wanted Tarantino to do some science fiction. I had always hoped it would be something original and not connected to an already established franchise, but I guess we'll take what we can get.

Tarantino has talked about Star Trek before. If he wrote AND directed his own Star Trek movie (which I honestly don't think he will), I could see it working. He's a man that's renowned for being able to take all sorts of genres and make his own enjoyable version of them.

I don't think we'll get anything like the Kelvin Timeline movies, though. I have a feeling Tarantino would either go campy 60s, or go hard sci fi. I'd like to see either of those, and I think what Tarantino would do was to go back to the Star Trek tradition of asking hard ethical/moral/philosophical questions.

Tarantino hasn't really done sci fi before, but given the last three movies, I really don't see Tarantino hurting the brand if the movie didn't resonate.

It's an experiment I'd really like to see.

I wouldn't mind Tarantino making a sci-fi movie in his unique style, but I would want that sci-fi movie be his own material he wrote from the ground up like he has been doing his whole career. Him being restricted to follow certain things from the Star Trek canon, like characters and lore doesn't seem like a good fit for Tarantino.

I don't mean to sound glib, but Star Trek Discovery didn't really give a shit either, and they got enough butts in seats (though that's not my endorsement of the show).

He said that one of his favorite episodes was "Yesterday's Enterprise", a TNG episode. He also said that he disliked Star Trek Into Darkness.

I feel like Tarantino would choose someone out of the box to be a captain, like Julianne Moore or Robert De Niro

I can't see how you can say old Trek didn't have an impressive following. They also have far more of a dedicated fanbase than Nu Trek films lol. People like the Nu Trek because it's flashy. Lots of explosions and action.

Old Trek is different. These are established characters with loads of appearances for character building. We've seen Nu Kirk 3 times. 3 different adventures. Shatner Kirk had dozens of adventures to pull from and build character. Both Picard and Sisko also had 150+ episodes worth of character development.

I could tell you a lot about the main crew members from the Trek shows. All I can tell you about, for example, Nu Sulu is he is good with a sword and apparently is gay.

Robtard
Sounds questionable on paper no doubt, but I'm down as he's a good director. Let him have his shot, if he bungles it up, move on to the next director.

If it was impressive as you thought it could hold a candle to Star Wars but since it can't they need to attract newer fans since the base never rivaled Lotr or Potter like draw outs either.

I don't need to see these guys for hundred plus hours to get a feel for them. Less is usually more. I don't need to see Freddy Krueger taking a shit and random scenes prior to the transformation.

**** old trek save Spock.

BruceSkywalker
if tarantino does actually write and direct a trek film , i can see him making a brand new trek film that has nothing to do with the kelvin timeline.. i could actually see it something like wrath of khan where they took an existing character from the tv show and expanded on it

playa1258
We could see a big screen adaption of Yesterday's Enterprise from TNG.

Here's the complete documentation of every use of it in his films:

I'm trying to find a film that doesn't have he n-word in it that he has made.

Looks like Dusk til Dawn, the Kill Bills, and Inglourious Basterds are the only films he made that did not have it.

Original Trek, plus the other shows, was not Star Wars. Listen to the commentary from JJ Abrams for the 2009 Star Trek movie. Old Trek was a slower pace, they compare it to submarine warfare.

Their new movie was different. They flat out say it's Star Wars, because that is what they grew up on, and this movie is influenced by it. That moment in the beginning where Kirk shows up with a motorcycle to that huge space station? They say that was the Tatooine moment, when you see the two suns.

I feel like he could maybe make an entertaining film using Trek characters, but I don't think he could actually get Trek right.

IMO the tv shows are above the movies, they reign supreme. Kirk was a whiny b*tch in Star Trek Beyond.

I feel like this needs to be shown. This is what Trek has given us. Kirk being mind controlled to act like he is riding a horse. Trek Shows>>>>Nu Trek

UhQA-06kSLU

And Spock is tap dancing, because why not.

Oh it actually will be R rated:

I don't care for old trek and since Abrams made it less pro Trek. Another reason why the third trek film was far worse than Abrams gems.

So, Patrick Stewart said he'd be up for coming back if Tarantino does get this made.

Dammit... I thought I'd never see Picard again, and now this comes along.
