Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek script may never reach the big screen.
Zachary Quinto, who stars as Spock a.k.a. our favorite Half-Vulcan in the rebooted franchise, told Entertainment Tonight that there are a few people gunning for the writer's chair for the upcoming film.
“First of all, I think there’s a couple of scripts. Because there was a script being written before Quentin Tarantino came up with his idea for a potential film. And so I think they are kind of developing more than one,” he said. “So I don’t know what is going to happen. Quentin is off doing another movie. So, I feel like we are in a state of anticipation. All of us are really excited about the idea of working with Quentin on a Trek film, but I know Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, who wrote the last film, are writing a script and there are another set of writers writing a script. So I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Back in 2009, J.J. Abrams produced and directed the first film in the rebooted franchise, while Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman took on the writing duties. Two more films, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond, have been released since then. While the next installment is set to be released in 2019, it seems they'll either have a series of multiverses with different writers or only one will come out on top. Or perhaps they're trying to keep up with their nerd rival, Star Wars, which has multiple series in the works.
Either way, Tarantino is pretty busy these days as he's working on the film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is based on the gruesome murders of Sharon Tate and her friends by Charles Manson's followers. Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to star as Tate's next-door neighbors, while Margot Robbie is in talks to play the late actress.
But we'd be lying if we weren't curious what a Tarantino-backed Star Trek would look like either!
