Quentin Tarantino Confirms He’s Working On An R-Rated Star Trek Movie

Klingon motherfucker, do you speak it?

While we wait for the star-studded ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ to drop this summer, it looks like Questin Tarantino already has his next project sorted; a new Star Trek film, Tarantino-style.

Speaking in the next issue of ‘Empire’, Tarantino confirmed that his new frontier for Star Trek will be swear-laden (“Oh yeah!”), and that it will be R-rated:

It’s an R-rated movie. If I do it, it’ll be R-rated.

There’s a script that exists for it now. I need to weigh in on it, but I haven’t been able to do that yet.

Of course the Star Trek universe has historically been largely devoid of swearing, and so the immediate social media reaction to Tarantino writing and/or directing a Star Trek movie hasn’t been great:

Obviously not every Trekkie will have a problem with it, but inevitably the backlash will get worse once Tarantino really gets to work on it.

If you think about it though Captain Kirk and Dr McCoy dropping F bombs and aggressively freaking out over things isn’t the most unrealistic idea in the world, especially with the amount of time they spend on that ship and how often things go wrong up in space.

Shit, Scotty from the original Star Trek was an alcoholic Scotsman – pretty sure there’s no alcoholic Scotsman out there who doesn’t end every sentence with the C-word, so the idea of an R-rated Star Trek might not be so crazy after all.

Looks like the Swear Trek Twitter account is already ahead of the game though:
