Director Quentin Tarantino may be diving into the “Star Trek” universe for his next movie, and it will definitely have that signature Tarantino style.
In an interview with Deadline, the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” director talked about his vision for a “Star Trek” film.
“I just don’t think it’s that big of a deal but if I’m going to do it, then I’m going to do it my way,” he said. “If you’ve seen my nine movies, you kind of know my way is an R-rated way and a way that is without certain restrictions. So that goes part and parcel. I think it would be more controversial if I said I’m going to do a PG movie and it’s going to fit exactly in the universe. It’s not me. What the f**k am I doing? I mean, I didn’t even do that when I did that ‘CSI’ episode.”
Tarantino also made sure to note, “I don’t know if I’ll do it or not. I’ve got to figure it out,” but he did tease that if it does get made, the film will very much fit within his filmography.
“I get annoyed at Simon Pegg. He doesn’t know anything about what’s going on and he keeps making all these comments as if he knows about stuff. One of the comments he said, he’s like ‘Well, look, it’s not going to be “Pulp Fiction” in space.’ Yes, it is!” the director said.
“If I do it, that’s exactly what it’ll be. It’ll be ‘Pulp Fiction’ in space,” he continued. “That ‘Pulp Fiction’-y aspect, when I read the script, I felt, I have never read a science-fiction movie that has this sh*t in it, ever. There’s no science-fiction movie that has this in it. And they said, I know, that’s why we want to make it. It’s, at the very least, unique in that regard.”
Tarantino added, “But there is a gangster element to what we’re doing with the ‘Star Trek’ thing that works out pretty good.”
