    Crazy theory/notion - what if this ST4 pay drama has been orchestrated by someone(s) deliberately so Trek Thor falls apart so then they can get to QTs Trek after he's done with Once Upon A Time? (otherwise if Trek Thor happens for summer 2020 and bombs it could cancel QT Trek.. or even if is a moderate success QT might've lost interest by then anyway and moved on to something else)

    I'm right there with you. The 25% difference stipulations will make things different a tad, but feel his ability to story tell, dialogue between characters will help off set any budget issues, etc.

    Have to wait on the Picard to see if Kurtznan/CBS finds a way to screw it up. Hopeful tho

    Everything I've read about the Tarantino project suggests that his influence may wind up being minor at best, i.e. that he seeded a treatment which is being developed by other writers and then filmed by another director. That is...underwhelming...to put it mildly. The guy is an auteur and the only stuff with his name on it worth seeing is something he himself controls.

    The main draw is Tarantino Does Star Trek. It's a Quentin Tarantino movie first and a Star Trek movie second. Otherwise, why do it?

    They should go all out. No one expects this to be a "normal" Star Trek movie and it shouldn't be. It'll probably be a one-off, not a permanent new direction. If it flops, they have the perfect out. They can just say next time they'll make one more in-line with the few before it.

    Will we finally find out what is in the golden briefcase from Pulp Fiction?

    On a serious note, it's probably a lot of swearing and guts and really interesting dialogue that only Terentino can do.

    I agree.

    I don't know about that. Part of the appeal of the film is having him direct it himself. If he doesn't it won't generate as much buzz (and probably won't be as good IMO). The things he does that makes his movies great I want. Those long scenes with fun dialog and fantastic drama and a sense of humor. If were not getting that I would be very dissapointed.

    Mark L. Smith is writing the movie, last I heard Tarantino still intends to direct it himself.

    Marketing.

    So much of CBS/Paramount's approach towards Trek these days seems to be driven by
    Do you have a link for that? He's not known for directing movies he didn't write.

    BTW, here's a newish video about his way of working. I don't think good things would come out of him (or someone else) merely interpreting a script that started out with his treatment and got developed by someone else without his direct involvement.

    We’ll probably see the Enterprise break into the reality where Brad Pitt and his men blew up Hitler.
    Whatever it will be it will be gloriously demented.:lol:

    At Trekonderoga yesterday, Karl Urban mentioned that the proposal he'd seen was "bananas," and meaning good bananas.

    It's sad all the drama is surrounding salvaging Trek 4 rather than just round-filing it and fast-tracking Tarantino-Trek. Sure, he's filming now, but he tends to work fast when he actually starts shooting. He'll be done with it soon enough.

    While probably not that, Tarantino's movies are supposedly all set in the same continuity.

    So if Tarantino does unambiguously place his Star Trek production in the prime universe, that means the Roddenberry/Berman universe and the Tarantine universe are one.

    I'm fairly sure TarantinoTrek will be it's own thing. A Logan among Trek movies. One that nobody will ever forget but also will never mention again.

    What would interest me most is if QT continues the tradition of having genre specific cameos by some forgotten stars.
    Trek itself though rather incestous casting-wise has generally been good to those in the sci-fi stereotyping gutter.

    Suggested names anyone?

    Personally, I'd rather see Tarantino do a Bounty Hunters film for the Star WARS franchise, and us get David E Kelley (of "Boston Legal" TV fame) to oversee a screen adaptation of John Ford's novel "How Much For Just The Planet" using the Kelvin-verse crew. :D

    Indeed. He knows the rules of the Trek universe.

    No reason to suspect that his Trek film would have the non-stop swearing and violence that his other stuff does. David Lynch went mainstream with The Straight Story - no reason QT couldn't do the same here.

    Unless, of course, we get Admiral Samuel M-F Jackson--then all bets are off. ;)
