Quentin Tarantino has pitched an R-Rated Star Trek idea to JJ Abrams and Paramount Studios and both are on board.
The search for a writer is under way. Mark L. Smith of The Revenant is believed to be the front-runner.
Sounds like Tarantino has also thrown his hat into the ring to Direct the film.
QT has stated in the past he is a big fan of The Original Series and a William Shatner/Captain Kirk fanboy. I'd expect his story to have a heavy dose of Chris Pine and would not be surprised if he brings William Shatner back into the fold.
