Quentin Tarantino, JJ Abrams are teaming up for a 'Star Trek' movie

Quentin Tarantino, JJ Abrams are teaming up for a 'Star Trek' movie

And Quentin Tarantino may be boldly going where he has never gone before.

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek movie pitch is heading to the writers' room over at Paramount, as the Hateful Eight director's pitch, reportedly delivered to JJ Abrams, seemingly went well.

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. There's a chance that if he likes the results, he might even direct it, though we question whether QT would want count it among his own films, since he's planning to make a limited number of movies.

The Pulp Fiction director has reportedly shared his idea for the next Starship Enterprise adventure with J.J. Abrams, who is said to have agreed to produce the film if it works out. As TrekMovie reported in September, Tarantino's name entered the Trek sphere after his remarks on a Nerdist podcast in 2015 began recirculating around the web. But according to reports coming out of Hollywood, it's possible the film could be helmed by the last director Trekkies would expect.

Abrams, who is now working on "Star Wars: Episode IX", directed the 2009 reboot "Star Trek" and the 2013 sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness".

Folloing the release of Star Trek Beyond in 2016, Paramount announced plans for a fourth film focusing on Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his deceased father (Chris Hemsworth). This means that the next Star Trek film might require a new source of funding before it could be greenlit.

He has worked with franchises on the small screen, directing episodes of CSI and ER.
