Tarantino to make a Star Trek movie?

On Monday night, Deadline reported that Quentin Tarantino has met with Paramount and J.J. Abrams to talk about his Star Trek movie idea.

Tarantino actually talked about his love for the franchise and about wanting to make a movie back in a 2015 episode of The Nerdist Podcast. Answering a fan’s question about directing a Star Wars movie, Quentin says he would rather do a Trek film. He mentions that some of the great episodes, in particular The Next Generation’s episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” would make for an awesome movie if their plots were expanded upon.

Then, this past October, TMZ caught Tarantino and asked if he really wanted to direct a Star Trek movie. He replied with, “It would be worth having a meeting.” Which apparently, that meeting has happened
