Quentin Tarantino in talks to make Star Trek movie

Set phasers to stun The film series was rebooted in 2009 and has had two sequels so far

Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams are reportedly in the early stages of a "Star Trek" movie.

And according to Deadline, the studio is taking this seriously enough - who wouldn't when you have the chance to get Tarantino involved with the venerable franchise? - to convene a writers room to hear the director's idea and start to crank out a script. Tarantino has an eye to direct the potential project.

In 2015, Tarantino said he was a fan of the original TV series. Tarantino noted that many classic Star Trek episodes could be "easily expanded" into a feature film, and he specifically mentioned the Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" as one that could work on the big screen.

J.J. helmed the two Star Trek films for Paramount in 2009 and 2013, but is now busy working on the Star Wars franchise. " Now that he's working on a Star Trek film of his own, it's possible he's aiming to adapt the timeless episode, "The City on the Edge of Forever". In the case of Tarantino, however, it's hard to think of a writer-director with more of a specific, honed sensibility. He remains a producer on the current film series, even while he's entered the Lucasfilm universe with "The Force Awakens" and now "Episode IX".

In a move few would have predicted, Quentin Tarantino is to boldly go where he has never gone before and make a Star Trek movie. Huahua Media financed Star Trek Beyond in 2016. A Star Trek film would be his first foray into taking the reins of a pre-existing film franchise, although he has done so before on television with episodes of ER and CSI.
