    Tarantino developing Star Trek 4

    http://www.joblo.com/movie-news/j-j-...trek-pitch-226

    Earlier this year, Quentin Tarantino stated in an interview that he's a big Star Trek fan and that he'd be interested in developing a new story and possibly even directing. Apparently Abrams and the producers of the new "Kelvin Timeline" films heard about these statements and took them seriously, as a writers room has now been put together to develop Tarantino's ideas.

    They had announced Trek 4 around the time "Beyond" was released, saying it would somehow involve Kirk meeting his father, played by Chris Hemsworth(Thor). No word of this is the same story Tarantino is developing or if it's something new all together.

    This is definitely a strange pairing, but the possibilities are interesting. They say there's even the possibility of Tarantino directing, but I personally doubt that...

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I agree, we could definitely do without another time travel story, but I suppose they're just wanting to capitalize on Hemsworth's popularity at the moment.

    Time travel has always been a big part of Trek, even the original series has about five episodes involving time travel, but I would prefer that they leave the time travel to the first film in this new rebooted series. It worked well IMO and should be left alone.

    I think Tarantino's idea is something new, not involving their original idea of the Kirk's meeting each other.

    LOL! It's what I was thinking he would do. Almost all the movies he makes are some variation on this general theme: foul-mouthed, low-life, and/or tough-hombre characters doing outrageous things and/or mindless acts of violence.

    Wow....So we were laughing about a Trek entry with Tarantino's signature violence and language, which is something I just flat out believed to be impossible. But.....Apparently that's exactly wat they're doing?!?

    Tarantino's first requirement to be able to direct was that he could make it rated R. I'm at a loss for words...

    This is bizarro levels of weird.

    Well this is curious ... especially when it's the fourth film in the current series where all previous have been PG-13.

    He was working on a Manson movie apparently, although that too surprised me, as there's been a couple of those recently (i.e. what's the point in QT doing one as well?). This is an turn up for the books. We're so used to him doing his own stories.

    A Tarantino Star Trek movie? Well that's ... unexpected.

    These reboot ST films have been absolute crap. But Tarantino doing one will be a new level.

    Talk about two things that shouldn't meet.
