Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek movie would reportedly be R-rated

Report: Quentin Tarantino's STAR TREK Will Be R-Rated AF

Earlier in the week it was learned that Quentin Tarantino pitched a Star Trek movie to JJ Abrams, and now the movie is moving forward at warp speed.

According to a new Deadline Hollywood report, the Hateful Eight and Pulp Fiction filmmaker's proposed Star Trek movie is meant to be rated R, which would mark a first for the Paramount Pictures franchise and a rarity in the realm of big-budget tentpole movies.

U.S. homeless population rises for first time in 7 years
In San Diego, the number of homeless veterans went down about 10 percent and now is 12 percent of the total homeless population. The 5,485 unsheltered people counted in the county in 2017 represent a 21 percent increase over last year's tally.

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.

Tarantino reportedly sat down for hours in the writers room with fellow scribes Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce to hammer out details on the new film, as Tarantino made it known that the R-rating was a top priority for him. This was a condition of Tarantino being involved, and one that both Abrams and Paramount agreed to. And it's not as if it's without precedent these days: Star Trek: Discovery has been pushing the boundaries on TV already thanks to the more relaxed regulations with home carrier CBS All Access.

Eight-Term GOP Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona Expected to Resign

There is, of course, no guarantee that QT will step behind the camera - given his stated plan to make just 10 films, ending with a blockbuster he didn't write might not fit with that.

The Star Trek franchise has been overshadowed by Star Wars recently, but Paramount Pictures is determined to make the franchise a hit. I have a hard time believing it, so my guess is A. Tarantino simply produces and/or gets a "Story By" credit and someone else directs this movie or B. Tarantino makes one more original movie after Trek. If he's selected, he will overtake Justin Lin who directed 2016's Star Trek Beyond. We'll likely hear more soon, but what do you think about an R-rated Star Trek movie folks?
