Quentin Tarantino's Planned Star Trek Movie Will Be Rated R

Momoa in an Aquaman first look. Yeah this is fine. This will

Deadline reports that Tarantino's Star Trek film will be the first R-rated movie in Trek history. It's a first for the franchise, but Paramount is in something of a bind as the series has yet to really take off the way it had hoped at the box office, so clearly they've sparked to this left-field idea of having Quentin Freaking Tarantino direct it.

After news broke Monday that Tarantino had pitched a concept for a new Star Trek film to Star Trek reboot director J.J. Abrams, and that Abrams and Paramount were planning to assemble a writers room to hash-out Tarantino's idea, more Tarantino Trek news has arrived. His 1969-set Manson Murders drama that he's shooting next summer is #9, which would make Star Trek #10 if he indeed makes it. Tarantino met with many people earlier this week so that they can make his film a reality. The exception to this rule was Fox's Deadpool, but that film started out with modest ambitions before it caught on and became the biggest R rated film ever.

The crux of Tarantino's argument was that the best Star Trek episode scripts could easily be expanded into a 90-minute movie. Not to mention Tarantino himself has directed R rated movies his entire life and his films have mostly been huge hits. 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.

It will be interesting to see if this iteration gets made. The latest film, Star Trek Beyond, arrived in theaters a year ago, received generally positive reviews, and grossed $343.5 million at the worldwide box office. Knowing Tarantino, it should be violent but entertaining at the same time.
