William Shatner Reacts To Quentin Tarantino’s R-Rated ‘Star Trek’ Film
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director confessed his Star Trek film would be quite filled with profanity. This potential take on the franchise has been a major subject for debate amongst fans ever since it was reported that Quentin Tarantino was developing the film with the intention of possibly directing. This concept is based on an idea that Quentin Tarantino pitched to Paramount Studios and producer J.J. Abrams.
William Shatner immediately came to the defense of Quentin Tarantino’s film.
If Quentin Tarantino steps behind the camera to direct, the filmmaker has confirmed that his Star Trek movie will definitely be R-rated. Quentin Tarantino has been hard at work on his latest film, which is set to be theatrically released in the U.S. on July 26. Once his directorial duties for his ninth film are over, he said he will take a good look at the latest draft of the script.
Meanwhile, the Star Trek franchise continues on the small screen with Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access while a Jean-Luc Picard series is being developed for the streaming video on demand service. The new show is being developed for CBS All Access and is expected to follow Jean-Luc Picard 20 years after the events of the character’s previous adventure in Star Trek: Nemesis. Unfortunately, the fourth installment of the new Star Trek film series was reportedly shelved.
Star Trek: Picard stars Patrick Stewart, Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway. The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Patrick Stewart, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth are on board as executive producers. Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) serves as co-executive producer with Kirsten Beyer as supervising producer.
Star Trek: Picard will be available on CBS All Access in the United States, Space Channel and Crave in Canada, and Amazon PrimeVideo in over than 200 countries.
