In an interview with Deadline, Quentin Tarantino was asked about directing a future Star Trek movie, and his answer should settle the question of whether he will direct the movie or not.
“I think they might make that movie,” he said. “But I just don’t think I’m going to direct it.”
But Tarantino is willing to give an assist if asked about the script. “It’s a good idea,” he said. “They should definitely do it and I’ll be happy to come in and give them some notes on the first rough cut.”
