Quentin Tarantino is reportedly in talks to work on a new Star Trek movie – and it could well be his last.
While production on Tarantino’s currently untitled ninth film about the Charles Manson murders is due to begin next year, now The Hollywood Reporter claims that he has shared an idea with ‘Star Trek’ revival director JJ Abrams and pitched a new instalment for the legendary sci-fi series.
Last year, the ‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘Django Unchained’ and ‘Reservoir Dogs’ screen legend confirmed his plans to retire after his tenth movie, adding: “Hopefully, the way I define success when I finish my career is that I’m considered one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived. And going further, a great artist, not just filmmaker.”
Speaking to Nerdist about his love of ‘Star Trek’ and vision for a potential full-length movie back in 2015, Tarantino said: “The only thing that limited them was their ’60s budget and eight-day shooting schedule.You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some amazing, amazing stuff.”
As for Tarantino’s upcoming Manson film, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt have all been approached for the two lead male roles in the movie.
Aussie star Margot Robbie has been rumoured to play Sharon Tate.
