Quentin Tarantino postponed his plan to helm a “Star Trek” movie for an odd reason.
According to saga author Mark L. Smith, the sixty-year-old director turned down the opportunity to direct the fourth installment of the well-known science fiction saga because he did not want it to be his last work.
In an interview with Collider, Mark recalled, “Quentin and I went back and forth, he was gonna do some stuff on it, and then he started worrying about the number, his kind of unofficial number of films,”
According to Mark, the cunning creator expressed that he found it difficult to accept the possibility that Star Trek would be his final film and his final endeavor. Do I want to wrap things up this way?
Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Bad Robot announced the fourth part of Star Trek in 2016, claiming that they’ll continue collaborating on another installment ahead of the release of Star Trek: Beyond.
Moreover, Mark also confirmed the rumors of Quentin wanting the movie to be R rated.
“However, it seems like his goal was to simply push hard. It was challenging. There would be some ‘Pulp Fiction’-style violence, he continued.
