There hasn’t been any shortage of rumors claiming that Quentin Tarantino might be directing a new Star Trek movie in the future. However, Tarantino has confirmed that he won’t be directing a Star Trek movie after all.
In a recent interview, Tarantino said, “I think they might make that movie, but I just don’t think I’m going to direct it. It’s a good idea. They should definitely do it and I’ll be happy to come in and give them some notes on the first rough cut. It was just so nice to make a movie about the industry, and have the industry embrace it. At different Academy events, there has been a whole lot of old timers there who were around then and really liked the movie. Richard Rush thought we had captured the period well. Actors like Monte Markham, Sharon Farrell, Rita Moreno and all these people who dug the movie and knew the people involved and sometimes had affairs with some of the people involved with the people who were involved with the people who were on screen.”
While it seems that Tarantino might be interested in getting involved in a Star Trek movie, remember that the speculation first started back in 2017. As with all rumors, Tarantino directing a Star Trek movie got more exaggerated as the time went on.
As for Tarantino’s latest movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for the man himself.
