Quentin Tarantino's STAR TREK INTO RETIREMENT

post #1 of 234
Thread Starter 

"Already busy prepping to direct the film he just set up at Sony Pictures, Quentin Tarantino is also planning to boldly go where he has not gone before. Sources said that Tarantino has come up with a great idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount. After sharing his idea with JJ Abrams (who himself is busy prepping Star Wars Episode IX), I’ve heard the plan is to assemble a writers room of scribes who’ll hear Tarantino’s take and begin to put together a movie. If it all works out, Tarantino might direct it, with Abrams producing."

Barry, stop cluttering up the boards with threads for unconfirmed rumoured projects. 

 

Here's a new rule: Until production has been confirmed to be taking place on something, it shouldn't get its own thread.

 

Seriously, this bullshit's why so many people block you.

I felt the news was monumental enough to warrant its own thread, especially if this turns out to be his tenth and final film. That's fine if you don't agree, but if it doesn't garner enough interest it'll sink on it's own without you toothlessly laying down the law.

You feel EVERYTHING'S big enough to warrant its own thread. And how many of those go nowhere?

 

Whatever, I'm fucking done with you.

That's just what the franchise needs, Bones dropping N-bombs.

It's not as if I'm creating threads for MY LITTLE PONY animated flicks, I'm making them for Marvel, DC, Star Wars and Star Trek properties.

But we must be outraged.

Will we get Tarantino's first family friendly film or will Paramount let him do what he wants because the box office prospects for the franchise are on the wane? Part of me thinks he will want to challenge himself to work within the parameters of the PG-13 rating.

Well there is only one Star Trek movie that's made the kind of money Django Unchained has, so maybe they might not be too married to the idea that it must be PG-13 if he's doing it.

While it's not the '80s, you seem to be able to get away with more stuff under a PG-13 in the last five years.

Was just coming to say this is a little jumping the gun, Barry.

Wouldn't jumping the phaser be more accurate? Imagine a Quentin Tarantino directed Sergio Leone-style Mexican standoff in space with a Ennio Morricone score. *drools* Make it so!

"Tarantino and Abrams will wait until a solid script is in place before committing further, but sources tell Variety that the two are in the process of setting up a writers’ room for the next installment in the series."

 

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/quentin-tarantino-jj-abrams-star-trek-1202630524/

 

Deadline said the plan is to set up a writers room while Variety is going a step further by saying they're in the process of doing so. This isn't just idle chatter by Tarantino on a press tour. This has already progressed far enough that he's taking specific steps with the producer of the franchise to make it a reality.

We should just have a Quentin Tarantino Pie In The Sky Catch-All Thread for all the ideas he entertains for five minutes.

If Tarantino does decide to direct this, I can imagine his big ask of Paramount would be no CGI, just old school special effects. Prosthetics, puppets, models and matte paintings.

The Paramount suits are fools if they don't move heaven and Earth to make this happen. This is the shot in the arm the franchise needs to remain viable on the silver screen. Even if Tarantino doesn't end up directing this, his story may still stand as the basis for the fourth film and he may want to continue shepherding it as a writer and producer.

How do y'all feel about Tarantino employing a writers' room? While he's supplying the story and will probably rewrite anything they deliver, it is quite a departure for him.

Good gravy, there's some crankypants people in this thread. Tarantino is my favorite filmmaker and I'd rather have him doing original stuff, but if he's got an idea that he passionate about here, I'm all for it. NuTrek is 2 for 3 in my book and I'd like to see them get another shot at it, assuming this would use that cast.

post #25 of 234

People tend to forget Tarantino is a MASSIVE nerd, something that slips a lot in his screenplays and movies.

You are not going to see Bones throwing the N-word in a Tarantino Star Trek, for heaven's sake.

The guy gets the material and its legacy.

No it isn't. He already did this on the CSI two-parter (three writers adapting his story treatment).

post #27 of 234

I believe Inglorious Basterds barely has any curse words at all. Tarantino is capable of altering his own style. 

 

Although yeah, Discovery has apparently changed the game on what is acceptable in Trek, so who knows?

Hunter: I don't give a damn about what you'd rather forget about. Why were you two fighting?

Hunter: Rivetti, you're a supervisor. You can get a commission like that.

Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I know, Sir. You're 100 percent right. It will never happen again.

Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.
Hunter: You have to set an example even in the face of stupidity. Everybody who reads comic books knows that the Kirby Silver Surfer is the only true Silver Surfer. Now am I right or wrong?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: You're right, Sir.
Hunter: Now get out of here.
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.

 

I refuse to believe the man who had Denzel Washington recite half of this exchange on a submarine military drama/triller is not a great choice for a Star Trek movie.

Hell, if Marvel buys Fox's assets, I can see them offering Silver Surfer to Tarantino.

Holy shit, Tarantino doing this:

 

 

Or the crazier Slott/Allred run? Id watch that.

Oh yeah, Tarantino did a polish on Crimson Tide! I bet the horse like high school girls is all him.

Touché. I knew about his forays into television, but I figured he was more of a control-freak when it came to his feature films.

He also was in The Golden Girls

Hopefully he has enough time to run the writers' room himself before he starts filming NUMBER NINE next summer.

I really hope this isn't the continuity clean-up people are theorizing because Tarantino namedropped "City on the Edge of Forever" and "Yesterday's Enterprise" in some interview back in September.

 

And I hope it's with the Pine/Quinto crew for one last hurrah.

I was thinking he was very complimentary of the current cast?

post #35 of 234

Well sure. But by the time this hypothetical movie would come out, it'd be probably 2020, or later, and at least five years removed from the last nuTrek movie. Seems just as likely that Tarantino would be given free rein to create a crew from scratch in a different time period.

Captain Picard (Samuel L Jackson): "The line must be drawn here, mother fucker. Riker - cut that Vulcan's ear off whilst I play some tunes from the 1960's over the Enterprise's sound system."

post #37 of 234
He loved the 2009 movie and JJ is producing this so I doubt it's a complete reboot.
post #38 of 234

Indeed, I just learned today Tarantino was in a few episodes of Alias.

 

So perhaps this does happen!

The best products of the Star Trek IP are those that leverage the fact that its internal mythology feels as substantive and familiar as a well-worn catcher's mitt from your youth.  When Shatner's Kirk wistfully talks about feeling old, or when he has to come to terms with losses that the television series never gave him (and the audience) before, you get something that feels genuine because it is genuine. 

 

The problem with everything Tarantino says in that clip is that Paramount simply isn't in the business of making movies for Trek fans, where the stories lean heavily on the mythology beyond the most superficial characteristics that have managed to permeate general pop culture.  TNG's 'Yesterday's Enterprise' works because it's a mid-series episode that gets to presume you've got the first three seasons under your belt, whereas every JJ-verse Star Trek film functions as a self-contained story akin to a television pilot.

Do we really think Paramount will wait 'till 2021 for an R-rated Star Trek movie?
