The next film could take a very different direction with Quentin Tarantino involved in the project.
Just a few days ago, the surprising news emerged that Quentin Tarantino - a man more usually know for chatty criminals, nostalgic music cues and splashes of blood - had come up with an idea for a Star Trek movie, one he'd pitched to Paramount and JJ Abrams and they'd accepted.
Perhaps the biggest detail here, however, is that Paramount and Abrams agreed on Tarantino's condition that the Star Trek film would be rated R. That's right, should this film actually make it to the big screen, it will be an R-rated enterprise (pun intended).
That being said, R rated films have managed to make a lot of money recently. Well, it seems that things are moving at warp speed over in Hollywood as that writer's room, comprised of Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce, have met with Tarantino who stuck around to brainstorm ideas earlier this week. Deadline reports that Smith, who penned The Revenant, is the running favourite at the moment.

Matches can be limited to seven or ten turns if you want a quicker experience and you can even set short, medium, or long time limits on each turn.
Not surprisingly, the idea for the bold new film comes from Quentin Tarantino, who basically doesn't get out of bed for anything less than an R rating.
The first and most important piece of information: The planned film will be rated R, which we can only imagine is a significantly easier sell to the studio after the heavy success of films like Deadpool and Logan, which took their nerdy and childish pedigree and crafted successful adult-appealing takes on the material. So far, no timeline for the film's release has been revealed. Are you excited for what's sure to be a Star Trek unlike anything we've ever seen before? The film grossed more than $783.1 million on a production budget of $58 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
Star Trek fans might have to prep themselves to boldly go where no motherf***er has gone before.
