One of the wildest rumors that may end up being true is Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek film. The rumor has gained a lot of steam and Tarantino has even confirmed that he is interested in making an r-rated movie set in the Trek universe. If you've seen any of his nine films then you know what to expect from Tarantino, though Simon Pegg has claimed that the director isn't just going to make Pulp Fiction in space.
That's where Pegg is wrong. During an interview with Deadline, Tarantino revealed that he would make his Star Trek film like Pulp Fiction in space since a film like that hasn't been done in space yet. That's pretty crazy and shows that Tarantino really wants to go - no pun intended - beyond for this one.
"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! If I do it, that's exactly what it'll be. It'll be Pulp Fiction in space. 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."
Honestly, how do you not want to see Pulp Fiction in space? We can only hope that it leads to a fun Tarantino romp that still feels like a Star Trek film. As of this writing, Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek doesn't have a release date or release window.
