Quentin Tarantino is developing a Star Trek movie

Quentin Tarantino has an idea for a Star Trek movie and J.J. Abrams is assembling a writers room

The 54-year-old Oscar-winner is interested in directing the next Star Trek movie and even has "a great idea" according to a Monday report from Deadline.

According to the showbiz news site, Tarantino is keen to take the helm of the Star Trek franchise and has come up with a storyline for the next movie.

Sharing it with Abrams, who is currently busy working on the ninth instalment of Star Wars, it's thought they are now assembling a writers' room to develop the script.

If all goes well, Tarantino would direct with Abrams producing.

But clearly, adding Tarantino's cache to the Trek franchise would be a major coup for Paramount. In the case of Tarantino, however, it's hard to think of a writer-director with more of a specific, honed sensibility.

The director told Nerdist that, given the choice, he would prefer to direct a Star Trek film over Star Wars. While we're tempted to tick off the usual boxes - expletive-laden dialogue that addresses as much pop culture as it does plot points, eye-popping violence - Tarantino's usual calling cards would probably be out of place in a Star Trek film. "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some unbelievable, wonderful stuff".

Abrams rebooted the franchise in 2009.

While it is exciting that there is some momentum behind a fourth Kelvin-verse Star Trek movie, it is worth keeping in mind that Tarantino's pitch is just that.

Tarantino is known for creating his own original stories such as Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, The Hateful Eight, and more.
