Tarantino Trek, back from the dead?

Looks like the actor pay issue didn't kill all the Star Trek films in the works. Quentin Tarantino says he's nearly done with his script, and Zachary Quinto has expressed interest. https://uproxx.com/movies/quentin-tarantino-star-trek-r-rated/

    Tarantino has nearly completed a script. Quinto has "expressed interest".

    I note that nobody seems to have actually contracted to make the movie, Quentin just assumes that of course whatever emerges from his golden pen (golden word processor, whatever) will be committed to film, IP holders be damned.

    Going to be honest I have no interest whatsoever to see a Tarantino spin on Star Trek.
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    I'd watch it just for fun but I won't loose any sleep if nothing comes of it.

    QT seems to be trying his hardest make this happen. The fact he was willing to write a script for it suggests he is either trying REALLY hard to make it happen, or that he knows something we don't about how close this is to production. Scratch that, he definitely knows stuff we don't. The question is WHAT.

    I would rather this not be a thing. I have a weak stomach. Thanks. :)

    What does Tarantino know that we don't?

    In all probability, only what's in his script. His immense ego is well known, so that's not it.

    QT knows what Paramount has said to him about it. QT knows IF he's had a meaningful discussion about the possible film.

    It's true that he likes to talk about things before they're even greenlit, but most of it gets made.

    To justify the rating, we'd have to be dealing with a rather violent alien antagonist. Klingons could fit the bill, but without knowing anything more...
    Also the CLOSEST Star Trek movies had come to an R rating is actually ST6. Only dropped down to PG-13 because they changed Klingon Blood to Pepto Bismol pink.

    No. The movie will be a comedy, called "My Big Fat Betazoid Wedding" and be R-Rated for full frontal nudity.

    Yeah, I'm thinking it'd have parts like Kill Bill or Django Unchained where people fight to the death and it really looks like a fight to the death.

    I'd be down with this if it's a completely new roster of characters.

    Watching Inglorious TRIBBLE for the 10th time this week and I really hope that Tarrentino Trek is back in action. It would be hilarious to see the Enterprise Crew do the " bear Jew" scene with a Romulan agent or a captured Klingon. The Enterprise running over an enemy shuttle going into warp would be a great gag for a Tarrentino flick. Seriously there is some great potential for a rated "R" Star Trek. Considering what Tarrentino brought to the World War 2 genre, I can't wait to see what he does with Trek.
