Quentin Tarantino has plans to direct a Star Trek movie, and his only demand is that it is R rated.

Deadline reported on Monday that Tarantino pitched an R-rated Star Trek movie to Paramount. On Thursday, Deadline reported that the rumored project is moving forward at a rapid speed, and they’re already selecting a screenwriter.

JJ Abrams, who has directed two Star Trek films, is helping Tarantino and will be a producer. The movie likely won’t come out for a few years, but we can’t hide our excitement. A Star Trek movie from Tarantino — one of the most ambitious directors of all time — is an exciting concept, and we can’t wait to see the finished product.
