In an interview promoting his latest project, Netflix‘s Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino also spoke about a long-rumored Star Trek movie.
Back in late 2017, Tarantino successfully pitched an idea to Paramount Pictures for a possible Star Trek movie, which would have made its debut after Star Trek 4. When Star Trek 4 was shelved by salary disputes, things went quiet on the Trek movie front. But now Tarantino has people wondering again after an interview with Slashfilm. One of the questions posed to him during that interview was about a Trek movie. “I feel like I have to ask this even though I don’t know if you’ll want to answer,” said the Slashfilm interviewer. “But are you going to make a Star Trek movie? Is there any truth to that?”
Tarantino replied “It’s a very big possibility. I haven’t been dealing with those guys for a while cause I’ve been making my movie. But we’ve talked about a story and a script. The script has been written and when I emerge my head like Punxsutawney Phil, post-Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, we’ll pick up talking about it again.”
So perhaps we will get to see Tarantino Trek after all.
