Star Trek. It’s one of those brands that doesn’t appeal to everyone, but for those it does appeal to, it’s unique. Yet when J.J Abrams rebooted the franchise in 2009 and went back and recast the original Enterprise crew, making it appeal to everyone seemed to be the goal.
I thought 2009’s Star Trek was okay, if nothing special. However, I have a serious dislike for both sequels, Into Darkness and Beyond. It felt like the DNA of what Star Trek is, was just lost in both of those movies. They were both essentially big-budget action films, and that’s never been what Star Trek was about.
The generally negative box office response to Star Trek: Beyond has left the series in a sort of limbo. We know that directing legend Quentin Tarantino showed serious interest in writing and directing a new Star Trek movie, but from which era and cast, we had no idea, until now. We also do not know for sure if there will be a fourth Star Trek movie happening before the rumored Tarantino flick or not.
Zachary Quinto who plays Spock in the three new Star Trek reboot movies was talking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast and here is what he said about Tarantino’s plans.
“You know, until deals are done and contracts are signed and schedules are cleared, nothing is set in stone, so anything can happen. My understanding is Quentin had this idea and they were shaping it and forming it and he is off to do his Manson movie. And it would be after that, that the 2009 cast would go maybe do one with him. Which is pretty exciting, pretty cool.”
Now, the thing to remember here as Quinto himself says, nothing is signed. In fact, Tarantino has also hinted that the upcoming movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, could be his last? Quinto also makes no mention of another Star Trek movie happening before Tarantino’s as he did in the related story above.
If there is one thing I’d like to see at some point, it’s a Tarantino Star Trek movie, but I have to admit I’m disappointed to hear it would feature the 2009 reboot cast and not bringing back the cast of The Next Generation for one last hurrah.
What do you think of Quinto’s comments, do you think this movie will ever see the light of day and are you happy it would involve the reboot cast? Share your thoughts in the usual place down below.
