Given that we already have an excellent show in Discovery doing it's thing on TV, I am very open to different takes on the franchise on the big screen. Bring it on.
Oops. Got this in the wrong forum!
If this is true, then something I've been wanting to see for over 20 years will finally happen. Think I'll sneak in a Royale with Cheese when I see it on opening day.
Could be outstandingly great. I love Tarantino's movies. ST needs a shot in the arm, and TPTB could do much worse than to explore this option.
tlhIngan Hol, muthafucka! Do you speak it?!
Love the idea..!!! Hope Quentin gets to direct as well.. that would be beyond amazing!
A most intriguing prospect! Here's hoping JJ lets Quentin do the driving.
Here is my thought on this. It could be awesome...it could be terrible.
However, if I was just going to play the optimist, look at it this way. J.J. Abrams has an amazing visual eye and directing style, but frankly, his storytelling is mediocre at best and kinda sucks at worst. Tarantino on the other hand has an amazing visual eye, and amazing story telling talent. His scripts are tight and full of interesting dialogue and Star Trek is at its best with interesting dialogue.
Also, the people who can't think past their noses are already talking about how a Tarantino movie would be bloody, full of f-bombs and have racist characters using the n-word. But just think about that for a minute and realize how silly that argument is. Directors are creative people and therefore can branch out into different ways of doing things.
Remember when everyone said that Justin Lin was going to turn Star Trek Beyond into Fast and Furious in space? Now we know he didn't. Many fans, myself among them, think Beyond is the closest in feel to TOS. Yes, there is that one motorbike scene, but it's complimented with scifi in the form of holograms and crystallizing gas.
Look, I have faith Tarantino can tell what is appropriate for Trek and what is not, and use that judgement to not put his style on it TOO much. With him coming up with most of the story/dialogue, and Abrams lending his talents as a visual eye...we could be in for a treat. Or a disaster. Who knows?
I personally hope Tarantino and Co. go through with the Yesterday's Enterprise adaptation and we basically get led into Kelvin-TNG.
And they bring back Tom Hardy as Picard.
Why do you hate Hardy so much? Wasn't one descend into cocaine after Nemesis enough for him?
I'm very doubtful that anything will come of it, but it's nice to have people talking about Trek, and it would certainly be a fascinating event if it did happen.
Please oh please oh please oh please oh please.
Tarantino said that the first Abrams film was one of the best films of 2009. So if you're worried about another director like Lin coming in to conform the films into being more like the old show because they "hate" the first two Abrams films and want to bring back patriarchy by shoving Uhura aside for Bones, don't.
I get some of you like Tarantino, but he has nothing to do with trek and these movies. He could alter it all way too much, and beyond had already alienated fans of the first movies because it was too different. Just because you like a director in his genre, it doesn't mean he can be a good choice for every genre. His stuff tends to be in a certain way, so since I have no evidence of him truly being able to do something more fitting to this trek, I'm not so willing to trust him honestly. Besides, his ideas for a movie was basically making one only about kirk that is a rehash of a tos episode.. like can we get something original? He seems to hate the ensemble, but it's one of the things that make it different to Star Wars now.
Everything I keep reading here is generic ideas of him being great, but little argument is made to explain why he'd be great for this trek, and what you think he would do with the story and characters that should make those who love this trek hopeful instead of being scared it's a disaster.
Try to not mock people who are concerned when they have legit reasons to be. Even some hardcore Tarantino fans who like this trek are saying this screams disaster, and they have a reason, I think, for thinking that.
Fuck it, Paramount's got nothing to lose at this point. If it's this or no more Star Trek movies at all (and it sure looks like it at this point otherwise), bring on the ultra-violence. At least the Abramsverse would go out with a bang.
NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! The line must be bumped here!
I predict that this will never happen. Somewhere along the way there will be "artistic differences" and Tarantino will leave the project. Sooner probably than later.
