Mark L. Smith will write the script for the next Star Trek movie. He had been the frontrunner for the job after he and several other writers met with Quentin Tarantino earlier this month. Smith is best-known for writing 2015’s The Revenant, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio.
The idea for the movie has come from Tarantino, who would like to direct the movie. Tarantino and J.J. Abrams would produce the film, which could be R-rated.
Tarantino’s next film is about the 1969 Manson family murders which will release in summer of 2019. So the new Trek movie may not make its debut until after that movie.
