Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' Movie Is Gaining Pace; Will Be R-Rated

Forget photon torpedoes - Quentin Tarantino could be bringing F-bombs to the Star Trek universe. Abrams, who sparked to the pitch and quickly made this official. Now comes word that it may lean more towards his own sensibilities, with all agreeing that the film is going to be R-Rated in the US. Tarantino met for hours in a writers room with Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce. This was a condition of Tarantino being involved, and one that both Abrams and Paramount agreed to. Abrams liked it, Paramount seems to like it, and Tarantino has now presented it to a writers' room of scribes, and they seem to like it too. Seemingly gone are the talks of an alleged continuation that would have seen Chris Hemsworth return as Captain Kirk's long-dead father; instead, we now have utterly freaky ideas like this one floating around the Trek universe - one that operates in uncertain times, at least on the silver screen.

Secondly, the film will be written by Mark L. Smith, best known for writing the bear-on-Leonardo DiCaprio hardcore film The Revanant, and that, perhaps, is the most worrying detail to emerge in the last few days.

There is, of course, no guarantee that QT will step behind the camera - given his stated plan to make just 10 films, ending with a blockbuster he didn't write might not fit with that.

There have been 13 "Star Trek" movies so far. Would Quentin Tarantino really go out directing a blockbuster written by someone other than himself?

Work on the script will continue as Tarantino shoots his next film, an untitled period crime drama, and then he'll make any decision once that is complete.

An R-rated Star Trek movie would be rather interesting as we can guess the language and violence-factor would be amped up in addition to the possibility of adult (nude) scenes.
