Yes, Tarantino's Star Trek Film Will Be Rated R

After Deadline this week revealed that Quentin Tarantino pitched a Star Trek film to JJ Abrams and Paramount, the whole thing is moving at warp speed. Abrams, who sparked to the pitch and quickly made this official.

The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith is apparently the frontrunner to write the script from Tarantino's story concept.

Paramount owns the rights to the "Star Trek" movie franchise and Abrams has either produced or directed the last three movies in the series. First, though, Tarantino is working on a film about the 1969 Charles Manson murders.

Movie studios typically see R ratings as a drag on ticket sales because they exclude teenagers, which is why movies in tent pole franchises like "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" are nearly universally rated PG or PG-13. The plan is for Tarantino to direct.

Tarantino is still hoping to be the director since he's a huge Star Trek fan himself. Until then, keep reading for the latest on the proposed film. Pearce's script credits include Iron Man 3, Sherlock Holmes 3, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and the TV series Runaway TV; he just directed his script Hotel Artemis; Beer's credits are mostly upcoming, and include the Doug Liman-directed Chaos Walking, as well as Godzilla Vs. Kong, Masters of the Universe, Barbarella and Dungeons and Dragons, all big scale stuff. Tarantino met with many people earlier this week so that they can make his film a reality.

The Star Trek franchise has been overshadowed by Star Wars recently, but Paramount Pictures is determined to make the franchise a hit. But now even more details about Tarantino's Star Trek have arrived, including the revelation that the film will be R-Rated, per Tarantino's stipulations.
