Star Trek: Simon Pegg casts doubt on Quentin Tarantino film

With a key role in Ready Player One, Simon Pegg’s been doing the promotional rounds lately, and because he’s the oracle on two of the world’s biggest sci-fi franchises, he’s been dropping some rather juicy quotes. One was about the still-ongoing topic of Rey’s parentage in The Last Jedi and beyond; the other takes us to the Star Trek universe, and last year’s news that Quentin Tarantino had pitched an idea for a new movie in the franchise.

Word emerged in December 2017, leading to much speculation that Tarantino might even direct a more aggressive, possibly R-rated take on Star Trek. Pegg, in a recent interview, now suggests that a Tarantino Trek is pretty unlikely – largely because of his busy schedule.

“I don’t think Quentin is going to direct it,” Pegg told the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “Because he’s got his California movie [Once Upon A Time In Hollywood] to do and then I think only doing one more film after that. And I doubt, I don’t think he could get around to directing a Star Trek in two-three years.”

As for Tarantino’s idea, it’s apparently one of several ideas in contention. Mark L Smith is reportedly writing a screenplay based on Tarantino’s concept, while Spock star Zachary Quinto suggests that a second script is being written by Patrick McKay and John D Payne. (Quinto’s assertion that Pegg was co-writing a third screenplay is inaccurate, Pegg’s since said.)

What all this implies is that Paramount has a release window in mind for its follow-up to Star Trek Beyond, but still hasn’t locked down a final story. With the next Trek likely to be at least two years away yet, we’ll keep you posted as further details emerge.
