Which Controversial Director Could Be Heading for Star Trek?by

Star Trek is a franchise which has seen considerable re-investment over the years – Netflix fans are enjoying the hugely popular Star Trek Discovery (on hiatus until January) – and the trilogy of reboot movies starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have done well to introduce a whole new generation of fans to Starfleet. It seems, however, that the future of Star Trek could be set to get even more weird and wonderful – as perhaps the last director you’d expect has supposedly been in talks to potentially bring his own idea for the franchise to the big screen.

The director in question is Quentin Tarantino, famous for balancing awkward yet captivating stretches of dialogue with bizarre bursts of action and violence, who is reportedly talking behind the scenes with the likes of director JJ Abrams and Paramount with regard to the possibility of bringing his own unique touches to the franchise. The director has never kept his love for Star Trek a secret – and the thought of Tarantino bringing us his own brand of Starfleet stories to the big screen seems just bizarre enough to work.

Reports suggest that Paramount are keen to listen to Tarantino right now, meaning that his involvement in a future Star Trek movie could be assured. However, he has insisted in the past that he only intends to direct a few more movies before he retires – with his ninth due for release in 2019 – meaning that if a sci-fi epic involving the director is to take place, he may simply be on board as a writer. With few other details available right now, it’s impossible to say which direction this could take.

It will be interesting to see just how Tarantino’s trademark touches could transform the Star Trek universe – are we to expect violence on par with or greater than that which we’ve seen in Discovery? Will he bring Samuel L Jackson on board for the ride? Can we expect a three-hour epic with a 30-minute scene of seemingly quiet conversation on the bridge – only for all hell to break loose? Let’s wait and see – but if Tarantino is on board to write, say, Star Trek 4, it could make for a hugely interesting follow-up to the otherwise mediocre Star Trek Beyond of last year. Whether or not you’re a fan of the director’s work, such an appointment could be interesting – stay tuned!
