Quentin Tarantino Says He’s ‘Steering Away’ From His ‘Star Trek’ Movie

As recently as just a few months ago, Quentin Tarantino continued to insist that he was going to make a Star Trekmovie, even though he’s also insisted that he was going to make just ten movies before he retires, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was the ninth. He even called it “Pulp Fiction in space!” He sounded very serious about it.

But apparently in the last few months, something has changed. In a new interview with Consequence of Sound, Tarantino now sounds a lot less interested in the project. If you had to bet, you’d have to guess, based on these comments, that the whole thing is not going to come together. Here’s what he said:

Tarantino says that because Hollywood was such an epic film, and because it worked so well as a kind of “climax” for his career (his words), he wants to instead make something smaller for his final movie. He compared this movie — which he doesn’t have an idea for yet — to “the epilogue” or “author’s note” of a book.

He did say that he might still come up with a “really big idea” and change his mind. Maybe that big idea will be Star Trek related. For now, though, you’re gonna have to hope that recently announced Star Trek 4directed by Noah Hawley comes together instead.
