It's a film that feels like, the more time passes, it might never happen, especially with so much movement in other areas of the Trek universe, but Karl Urban believes Paramount would be crazy not to progress with a Quentin Tarantino led Trek film.
“This is a project that I have no information about, really. I haven’t read a script for it, but I understand the basic concept of it.”
“I think Quentin Tarantino doing that film would be phenomenal. He is definitely one of the most exciting filmmakers that’s currently working and if he has an interest in making a ‘Star Trek’ film, I think the studio would be insane not to let him do that.”
And as for Tarantino himself, he believes that if he does make Trek - which would be his 10th film, a number he has claimed for many years would be his final big screen movie - then Trek would indeed see the end of his directorial career.
“I guess I do have a loophole, [if] the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], ‘Uhhh, I guess “Star Trek” doesn’t count. I can do “Star Trek” … but naturally I would end on an original.’ But the idea of doing 10 isn’t to come up with a loophole. I actually think, if I was going to do ‘Star Trek,’ I should commit to it. It’s my last movie. There should be nothing left-handed about it. I don’t know if I’m going to do that, but that might happen.”
