After Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino claimed that he could be retiring in the near future. Considering how many great films are under his belt, with almost no bad ones that anyone can recall, this wouldn't be the worst decision ever made. In what many would consider being a Tarantino-worthy twist, the director still has a Star Trek film coming up; and it could be his last.
When asked by CinemaBlend if his Star Trek film will be his last, Tarantino gave an unsure answer but he was open to the possibility:
"I guess I do have a loophole, [if] the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], ‘Uhhh, I guess Star Trek doesn't count. I can do Star Trek… but naturally I would end on an original.' But the idea of doing 10 isn't to come up with a loophole. I actually think, if I was going to do Star Trek, I should commit to it. It's my last movie. There should be nothing left handed about it. I don't know if I'm going to do that, but that might happen."
Ending with a big licensed film would be an ironic twist for Tarantino, who has mostly worked on original works. Then again, he himself isn't sure if this will be his final film so most of us expect something original to come from him before eventually throwing in the towel.
No release date for Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek has been revealed.
