Several months back, before filmmaker Quentin Tarantino jumped into the world of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, he had some very public interactions with the folks over at Bad Robot. The discussions that came about were of a Star Trek movie — one based on a concept concocted by Tarantino himself. And as time went on, it seemed more and more likely that it would be happening.
But, of course, once Tarantino went all-in on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, that whole idea got pushed to the wayside. While the possibility still remained — and all the talk around it seemed positive — I’m always wary about dormant projects in the business, as they, more often than not, tend to disappear if they’re not championed by somebody. Is that what happened with Tarantino’s version?
Apparently not, as Tarantino himself revealed to /Film:
“I haven’t been dealing with those guys for a while cause I’ve been making my movie. But we’ve talked about a story and a script. The script has been written, and when I emerge my heard like Punxsutawney Phil, post-Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, we’ll pick up talking about it again.”
So, if you’re a Star Trek fan who can’t wait to see what vision Tarantino has for the franchise, then fret not. It looks like he’s coming back soon. But if you’re someone who’s a Star Trek fan and is worried that a Tarantino vision for the franchise can only end in ruin, then start fretting, because it could very well be happening.
