EXCLUSIVE: Karl Urban Weighs In On A Quentin Tarantino-Directed Star Trek Film

EXCLUSIVE: While most of the Quentin Tarantino-based excitement is centered around his upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, we can’t forget that Paramount is still — last we heard — hard at work on a script based on an idea from Tarantino. Should that script turn out well, Tarantino may very well even direct the film.

Our own Gig Patta recently sat down with Star Trek actor Karl Urban as he was making the rounds for his latest film, Bent, and asked him his thoughts on Tarantino potentially making the film.

“I think it is a really exciting idea. He is a dynamic filmmaker. Even if I wasn’t in the Star Trek movie, I would go to a Star Trek movie by Quentin Tarantino directed. That’s for sure.”

Gig then went on to clarify, saying, “So you haven’t got a call for another Star Trek movie at this time then, is what you’re saying?” Urban’s response was as follows:

“Here’s the thing—they’re in the really early stages of development at this time. Quentin is about to direct his Hollywood film with Brad Pitt and [Leonardo] DiCaprio. You’re talking about a film after a film. Ultimately, at the end of the day, the ball is in Paramount’s court. Hopefully, they’ll green light another Star Trek movie. If they do it, then it’ll be a lot of fun.”

At this point, we still don’t know if this Tarantino idea would fly with the current rebooted film crew, or would be something that The Next Generation crew would be handling. In previous interviews with Tarantino, he had ideas that could roll with either, and we don’t know which one they ultimately went with. Hopefully, we’ll find out soon enough!
