Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams Team Up for 'Star Trek' Movie

The crux of Tarantino's argument was that the best Star Trek episode scripts could easily be expanded into a 90-minute movie.

According to a sources who have spoken to Deadline, Quentin Tarantino may be about to collaborate with J.J. Abrams on the next Star Trek film. "If it all works out, Tarantino might direct it, with Abrams producing". It recently snagged a release date of 19 August, 2019.

But clearly, adding Tarantino's cache to the Trek franchise would be a major coup for Paramount. Granted, that and "City on the Edge of Forever" are two of the most beloved episodes of Star Trek of all time, but it's interesting that Tarantino would drop the names of not one but two episodes about time travel.

After last year's Star Trek Beyond, Paramount Pictures said it was planning to make a fourth movie in its reboot of the beloved series. "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some unbelievable, wonderful stuff".

Oklahoma, Georgia To Meet In College Football Playoff Semifinal At Rose Bowl
Both of the Trojans losses came against Top 18 teams on the road while USC's two wins over No. 13 Stanford still look impressive. While making the actual four team playoff would have been nice, this is still a solid way for both teams to end their season.

The director told Nerdist that, given the choice, he would prefer to direct a Star Trek film over Star Wars.

This all calls into question of whether Tarantino would keep any elements developed by Abrams and others up to this point, including the idea of bringing back Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role as Jim Kirk's father, a story line pitched by Abrams around the premiere of Star Trek Beyond. Moving beyond this stage would require a great deal of work before Paramount would consider greenlighting the project.

He has worked with franchises on the small screen, directing episodes of CSI and ER.
