Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek movie is now in jeopardy after the director revealed that he might not do the movie after all, which would be incredibly sad.
This would be the saddest news of the year in the world of pop culture because I’m pretty sure that most film enthusiasts would love to see what Tarantino would be able to achieve if he was given free rein to do whatever he pleased with the Star Trek franchise.
It was revealed a while back that Tarantino had written a Star Trek movie script and apparently J.J. Abrams loved it and so did Paramount Pictures and they want Tarantino to direct the movie.
So, it was then suggested that this Star Trek film could end up being Tarantino’s last film, which would be an amazing movie to go out on.
However, the director recently did an interview with Consequence Of Sound and during this interview, he revealed that he might not make the Star Trek movie.
I think I’m steering away from Star Trek, but I haven’t had an official conversation with those guys yet. In a strange way, it seems like this movie, Hollywood, would be my last. So, I’ve kind of taken the pressure off myself to make that last big voilà kind of statement. I mean to such a degree there was a moment when I was writing and went, ‘Should I do this now? Should I do something else? Is this the 10th one?’
Sounds like Quentin Tarantino isn’t making that Star Trek movie

Tarantino then added:
No, no don’t stop the planets from aligning, what are you, Galactus? If the Earth is saying do it, do it. Not that it was an argument, but a little thought, like, ‘Well, if I’m gonna go out like Max Ophüls style, Lola Montez, this is it, and if It’s not good, then all my other work is trash, alright.’ This would have been the one. But in a weird way, it actually kind of freed me up. I mean, I have no idea what the story of the next one’s going to be. I don’t even have a clue.
This would be hugely disappointing should Tarantino not make the Star Trek movie and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood be his last movie.
However, that wouldn’t be a bad movie to go out on, it would just be a shame that we won’t end up getting the Tarantino directed and written Star Trek movie we were all hoping for.
