Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Movie Pitch Heads to Writers' Room

Creative control The Kill Bill filmmaker tends to write and direct his own original ideas on the big screen most recently taking on the Western genre with his last two film The Hateful Eight

Tarantino and Abrams have plans to bring together a writers room to develop a film at Star Trek studio Paramount.

Abrams and Tarantino are "in the process of setting up a writers' room for the next installment in the series".

If things go to plan, Tarantino might even direct the thing, with Abrams producing. 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.

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

The Kill Bill filmmaker tends to write and direct his own original ideas on the big screen, most recently taking on the Western genre with his last two films Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.

At this point, it's unclear whether this means Paramount has abandoned its ambitions for Star Trek 4, which would have seen Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as Captain Kirk's father George Kirk.

"Sources said that Tarantino has come up with a great idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount".

Making things even more uncertain for another Star Trek film, Paramount recently announced that they have ended their financing deal with China's Huahua Media, a deal meant to finance a quarter of the films that Paramount produced over the next three years.

He is best known for work on his original film projects.

It's not Tarantino's first time taking on the reins of an existing franchise as he has previously directed episodes of CSI and ER, and has expressed interest in taking on a James Bond movie.
