Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' movie to be R-rated, reports say

If you've been following the movie news in the past few days, you've probably heard about the utterly freaky tale of the JJ Abrams-produced and Quentin Tarantino-involved Star Trek movie, which went from idle fanboy dream to on the studio fast-track in the span of about three days.

Tarantino met in a writers room with Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Lindsey Beer (Godzilla vs. Kong), and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) to kick around ideas for the script, and that Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to write it.

Movie studios typically see R ratings as a drag on ticket sales because they exclude teenagers, which is why movies in tent pole franchises like "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" are nearly universally rated PG or PG-13. This was a condition of Tarantino being involved, and one that both Abrams and Paramount agreed to. First, though, Tarantino is working on a film about the 1969 Charles Manson murders. The plan is for Tarantino to direct.

There's no word yet on whether Tarantino's version of Trek would feature Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto - they're contracted for a Star Trek Beyond sequel- or a totally different crew. Until then, keep reading for the latest on the proposed film. Phasers were set to stun, because nobody saw this coming; Tarantino isn't known for science-fiction, and he almost always works on his own original concepts, not established cinematic universes. Tarantino usually takes quite a bit of time between projects, but thus far everything about this Star Trek movie has been atypical for the Oscar-winning writer/director. The latest film, Star Trek Beyond, arrived in theaters past year, received generally positive reviews, and grossed $343.5 million at the worldwide box office.
