Tarantino Star Trek Movie?

The Wrap reported Paramount has assembled a writer's room with a number of screenwriters to hear Tarantino's "Star Trek" pitch. If things move forward, Tarantino would direct with Abrams producing.

Second, Tarantino has said on numerous occasions that he plans to retire from directing films after his next two pictures. He said he was a big fan of the original Star Trek series and liked the JJ Abrams 2009 Star Trek film, but didn't care for 2013's Into Darkness follow-up. Handing off writing duties would appear to be a good fit for both filmmakers given their current schedules: Tarantino is about to start shooting his next movie, a drama set in Los Angeles around the time of the Charles Manson murders, while Abrams is diving into Star Wars: Episode IX.

Abrams, who is now working on "Star Wars: Episode IX", directed the 2009 reboot "Star Trek" and the 2013 sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness". You could take some of the great classic Star Trek episodes and just easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some unbelievable, fantastic stuff.

According to the Times , Bernstein's suit did not, unlike some of the other claims against O'Reilly, involve sexual harassment. Her lawsuit also claims that O'Reilly's statements that no complaints were filed against him are "deliberately misleading".

The crux of Tarantino's argument was that the best Star Trek episode scripts could easily be expanded into a 90-minute movie.

Folloing the release of Star Trek Beyond in 2016, Paramount announced plans for a fourth film focusing on Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his deceased father (Chris Hemsworth).

Making things even more uncertain for another Star Trek film, Paramount recently announced that they have ended their financing deal with China's Huahua Media, a deal meant to finance a quarter of the films that Paramount produced over the next three years. This means that the next Star Trek film might require a new source of funding before it could be greenlit. He has directed episodes of television shows ("CSI" and "ER"), but only ever mused about doing the same with movies like James Bond.
