Quentin Tarantino is a multi-tasking guy. Not only can he weave a complicated tale about the murder of Sharon Tate which involves very little Sharon Tate, he can also simultaneously make a beloved franchise from the nerd eternal canon into a sex-filled, swear-filled, gritty QT masterpiece. Quentin is working on a version of Star Trek and he assures us that it’s going to be fully Quentin Tarantino. So I guess we can expect a character to say the N-Word in Klingon.
Empire reports that Quentin Tarantino has not just been sitting on his ass after making Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which is apparently amaaaaaaaaazing and deserves seven minutes of people standing and clapping.
In the new issue of Empire, Quentin talks about his new Star Trek project which was an idea that he pitched to Paramount. The movie is now being worked on by a group of writers and Quentin wants us to know that it will not be like all the other Star Treks of the past. This ain’t no Fruit Of The Loom, basic-ass, PG-13, bring the family-Star Trek. It’s gonna be gritty. You should should expect it all, especially swearing. When asked if there will be f-bombs he replied:
“It’s an R-rated movie. If I do it, it’ll be R-rated. There’s a script that exists for it now. I need to weigh in on it, but I haven’t been able to do that yet.”
By “weigh in on it” he means add deep backstory, moody cinematic color-coordinated camera shots, insane amounts of over-the-top violence and a healthy amount of racist/sexist slurs. You know, just beef it up a little.
I’m probably going to watch this movie which will definitely have at least one alien sex slave who gets choked by the person holding the camera. While Quentin is working on an edgy/violent Star Trek movie we should have him make some other classics. Quentin Tarantino’s Clueless. Quentin Tarantino’s Home Alone. Quentin Tarantino’s Cinderella. Imagine the possibilities!
