That seems to be the current status of this highly anticipated project- somewhat surprisingly - as the man himself Quentin Tarantino, while discussing the forthcoming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and the Netflix expansion of The Hateful Eight - made it clear that his journey into the space is very much still on the table.
Slashfilm had the pleasure of sitting down with tarantino to discuss a variety of topics and his Star Trek project was brought up.
I feel like I have to ask this even though I don’t know if you’ll want to answer. But are you going to make a Star Trek movie? Is there any truth to that?
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.
'A very big possibility'. We'll take that any day, so fingers crossed that his unique filter and style makes its way into the 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 32nd century and we see a Tarantino Star Trek film.
