Quentin Tarantino Supposedly Hoping For R-Rated Trek Film To Portray Horror Of Space

In a piece of salty, sweet irony, Tarantino’s Star Trek idea seems to have the most potential to actually happen — even more than another standard sequel from the Abrams-verse of the franchise. When last we heard, actors Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth had ultimately parted Star Trek 4 thanks to contract disputes, so who knows if and how that’ll happen.

But, as you may know, Tarantino doesn’t really dabble in non-R-rated films. As such, it seems like an unlikely prospect that, if his idea is adapted into an actual film, that it WON’T be rated R, right? Well, while speaking at Trekonderoga, actor Karl Urban seemed to reiterate that mindset:

“Quentin Tarantino went in to J.J. [Abrams]’s offices and pitched him an idea for a Star Trek movie. I know a little bit about what that is and it’s bananas… You shouldn’t worry that it is going to be full of obscenity and stuff. He wants an R-rating to really make those beats of consequence land. If it’s not PG, if someone gets sucked out into space, which we have all seen before, we might see them get disemboweled first… It allows some some breadth… gives him some leeway to do that. To me, that was always one of the things I loved about what DeForest Kelley did. He would actually capture the horror of space. That look in his eyes of sheer terror always struck me when I was a kid.”

I’m a bit torn on this front. While I’m not a huge fan of the franchise as a whole, exploitational violence isn’t really something I think of when I think of the show or films. The show deals with moral questions revolving around different cultures, and the films are more about nail-biting action sequences and emotional character development. Going for horror in space doesn’t seem to capture much of what makes this franchise tick.

That being said, if it can give us another Tarantino film without wasting one of his “10” movies he plans on making, I’m all for it. Call me a sucker.
