Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' movie to be R-rated, reports say

The report also indicates that Tarantino is interested in directing the project.
Paramount owns the rights to the "Star Trek" movie franchise and Abrams has either produced or directed the last three movies in the series.
If you've been following the movie news in the past few days, you've probably heard about the utterly freaky tale of the JJ Abrams-produced and Quentin Tarantino-involved Star Trek movie, which went from idle fanboy dream to on the studio fast-track in the span of about three days. While big-budget, R-rated studio films were the norm in the '80s and '90s (Terminator 2, Rambo III, True Lies, The Matrix), the practice died down in the 2000s, with many previously-violent and profanity-laden franchises downgraded to PG-13 (Die Hard, Terminator, etc). An R-rating would be a franchise first and a rarity for tentpoles, but with the recent success of Deadpoool and Logan, this seems like something Paramount execs are open to trying with the Trek franchise.

It's reported that Tarantino met in a writers room with Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce, that they came up with ideas for the film, with Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) looking like the frontrunner to write the flick. Now, the trade has revealed a new detail that promises to take Star Trek in a bold new direction: The new film will be rated R. However, with Star Trek only being based on an idea from him (rather than being wholly written and directed by him), we can't help but wonder if this will be more of a side deal for him, than his actual 10th film. His 1969-set Manson Murders drama that he's shooting next summer is #9, which would make Star Trek #10 if he indeed makes it. Smith is reportedly the front-runner for the job of penning the first draft of what would be the next Star Trek movie.
There's no word yet on whether Tarantino's version of Trek would feature Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto - they're contracted for a Star Trek Beyond sequel- or a totally different crew. Let us know your thoughts down below!
