Things continue to turn in an unpredictable way over there at Paramount. Recently, we reported on the news that filmmaker Quentin Tarantino had an idea for a Star Trek movie, and that the pitch led to J.J. Abrams’ intention to form a writer’s room to bring that idea into reality.

That idea would then be written by someone and hopefully directed by Tarantino himself. Well, Deadline has some more juicy details regarding the progress of the film.

According to the outlet, Tarantino met with writers Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Lindsey Beer (Godzilla vs. Kong), and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) for hours. In addition to brainstorming ideas, it’s been reported that one of them will actually get the gig to write the film, and that the current frontrunner is Smith.

Perhaps the biggest detail here, however, is that Paramount and Abrams agreed on Tarantino’s condition that the Star Trek film would be rated R. That’s right, should this film actually make it to the big screen, it will be an R-rated enterprise (pun intended).

Currently, Tarantino is hard at work prepping his next film, which is set in 1969 against the Manson murders.

Tarantino has long been vocal about his desire to put up his filmmaking cap after 10 films. However, with Star Trek only being based on an idea from him (rather than being wholly written and directed by him), we can’t help but wonder if this will be more of a side deal for him, than his actual 10th film.

    If you’re going to be on board with Tarantino, you have to be all the way in. I know I am, and I guess the next Star Trek film will be a scaled down affair if they go R. I’m curious as hell, for sure.

      Does he look like a Borg?
      Then why’d you try to fuck him like one?

      No
      And do you know why? Because storing dead Kiggers ain’t my fucking 5 year mission!

    This is fantastic! As I’ve barked about on these boards for years is how I wanted to see Tarantino do a sci-fi as his 10th and final film. Not only do we get that, but it looks like we’re getting a Star Trek to boot. If this goes official – it is my single most anticipated film.

    What I forsee:
    A Klingon Bat’leth fight the likes of Kill Bill House of Blue Leaves
    Maybe a time travel back to the 70’s or early 90’s
    Sweet as music that isn’t played in the movie, but over it.
    Someone in a black and white suit
    Tim Roth as a Romulan
    Risa foot massage
