Simon Pegg Says Tarantino’s Star Trek Film May Not Necessarily Be R-Rated

A couple months back, the world sort of imploded when it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino had had a meeting with J.J. Abrams, and that that meeting led to them carrying out a Star Trek idea into script form. But what would be the rating of this new Trek story? Would Paramount maintain the franchise’s generally family-friendly rating, or would they go full Tarantino on us and go R?

At the time, it was stated that Tarantino, Abrams, and Paramount all agreed that the film would be rated R. However, according to a recent interview with Simon Pegg, that may not necessarily be the case. Speaking with Hey U Guys, the writer-actor said:

“I don’t think [Quentin Tarantino] has written an R rated Star Trek script. I think what happened is, he went to JJ with an idea that he’s had for a while. I remember he told us about it a long time ago. I think he told me and Edgar [Wright] about it a long time ago. He just put it to JJ and I think JJ’s just considering putting it into a writing room. We got an email saying ‘Guess what? Guess who came into the office the other day?’ I don’t know much about it other than it’s in the mix, so we’ll see.”

So does this mean the film WON’T be rated R? Not at all. From the sound of it, Pegg’s only heard a few things regarding this film. For all we know, he just doesn’t know the complete story, and is going off of incomplete information. However, assuming he is right, I can still see the studio going forward with a story, and if it NEEDS to be rated R, then they’ll go with it. If not, why force it, right? It all depends on what the story needs.

What do you think of the film being rated R? Do you think it would be a good thing? Sound off down below!
