  • Report: Quentin Tarantino's STAR TREK Will Be R-Rated AF

They've met with Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer (who worked on the unreleased Dungeons and Dragons), Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3), and Megan Amram, one of whom will be writing the screenplay for the movie.

Following the news that Quentin Tarantino was working on a new idea for the franchise alongside J.J. Abrams, with plans to direct, Patrick Stewart has thrown an unlikely hat back into the intergalactic ring. Now Deadline has not only brought word about who Abrams has put together for the writers room, but also that Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek will be rated R!

The Pulp Fiction filmmaker has reportedly pitched producer J.J.

In fact, working with Tarantino has been a longtime dream for Stewart, and having it be part of the Star Trek universe would be an unbelievable bonus. This was a condition of Tarantino being involved, and one that both Abrams and Paramount agreed to.

"People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?' And I can not think that would be possible", he told The Hollywood Reporter at the Dubai International Film Festival, "but there are ways in which something like that might come about".

Movie studios typically see R ratings as a drag on ticket sales because they exclude teenagers, which is why movies in tent pole franchises like "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" are nearly universally rated PG or PG-13. His 1969-set Manson Murders drama that he's shooting next summer is #9, which would make Star Trek #10 if he indeed makes it. If the script is to Tarantino's liking, he'll direct this Star Trek movie. In all, there have been 13 Star Trek movies, stretching from 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture to last year's Star Trek Beyond.
