The Star Trek Episodes That Quentin Tarantino May Turn Into a Movie

Abrams presumably liked the story pitch, and they now plan to assemble a writers room, who will hear Tarantino's treatment and start writing a script.

Deadline's quoted sources who said Tarantino "has come up with a great idea" for a new instalment set in the re-booted Trek universe. If it gets the green light, Tarantino will direct and Abrams will produce. As TrekMovie reported in September, Tarantino's name entered the Trek sphere after his remarks on a Nerdist podcast in 2015 began recirculating around the web.

Abrams, who is now working on "Star Wars: Episode IX", directed the 2009 reboot "Star Trek" and the 2013 sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness".

'House of Cards' to resume production, without Spacey
Deadline reports that it will be an abridged season of eight-episodes used to wrap things up in a satisfying manner. Production on the political drama had been suspended in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against Spacey.

Tarantino's gone on record with his love of this franchise before, so it's not entirely shocking to learn the director might have a Star Trek story up his sleeve worth telling. You could take some of the great classic Star Trek episodes and just easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some incredible, fantastic stuff.

Last year, the "Pulp Fiction", "Django Unchained" and "Reservoir Dogs" screen legend confirmed his plans to retire after his tenth movie, adding: "Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I'm considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived". Not so much? Do you think the entire cast of Abrams' rebooted Star Trek franchise will be coming aboard for this, or do you think Tarantino would recast from the ground up and make this a one-off thing? A Star Trek film would be his first foray into taking the reins of a pre-existing film franchise, although he has done so before on television with episodes of ER and CSI.
