Maybe the world just wasn’t ready for a swearing James Tiberius Kirk.
Quentin Tarantino, known for hit films such as Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2, may be stepping away from his version of Star Trek, according to Deadline. It was previously reported that Tarantino and J.J. Abrams were teaming up to produce an edgy R rated take on the space classic.
The prolific director is a known Trekkie.
Tarantino stated he “might be steering away from it, but we’ll see”. This doesn’t spell well for Star Trek. While nothing has decided, the film may be done in before it ever really got going.
Tarantino’s partner in crime for the film, J.J. Abrams, previously directed 2009’s Star Trek and its follow up 2013’s Star Trek: Into the Darkness. It’s possible Abrams could take on the project alone.
There is also buzz of around the other Star Trek reboot directed by Noah Hawley.
Only time will tell which Star Trek will make it the big screen.
