It appears to be like it’ll be a even though prior to Paramount delivers Star Trek back again to the significant screen. THR reviews new president Emma Watts has set all a few in-enhancement requires on the franchise on maintain in an hard work to definitely aim on exactly where the sci-fi series must head up coming. This incorporates a pitch from Legion creator Noah Hawley, yet another seeking to reunite the forged of the J.J. Abrams reboot collection, and—most intriguingly—an plan from The Revenant author Mark L. Smith with the intention for Oscar-winner Quentin Tarantino to immediate. I say “most intriguingly” for the reason that what the hell would a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek film even look like? Nowadays, we have some thing close to an reply.
Deadline’s report notes that Tarantino’s project is “based on an episode of the classic Star Trek collection that will take put mostly earthbound in a 30s gangster environment.”
That appears a entire ton like “A Piece of the Action”, a period 2 episode directed by James Komack and written by David P. Harmon and Gene L. Coon. The episode finds Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy), and McCoy (DeForest Kelley) beaming down to the earth Sigma Iotia II in lookup of a extensive-dropped ship only to uncover the locals rocking the pinstripes and Tommy guns of your classic 1920s American gangster. It’s an out-there episode, possibly the only Star Trek episode to aspect a drive-by taking pictures, and a Tarantino get on the story would’ve been actually wild.
Regrettably, there does not look to be a scenario where by that comes about. The “Piece of the Action” adaptation is continue to a “viable” alternative for Paramount, but Tarantino appears to have remaining the project. Back in January, here’s what he experienced to say:
“I assume they may well make that motion picture, but I just really do not consider I’m going to immediate it. It is a very good strategy. They need to undoubtedly do it and I’ll be delighted to occur in and give them some notes on the 1st rough lower.”
