Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek Film Has A Writer

The story of Quentin Tarantino‘s R-rated Star Trek film is picking up steam, as Paramount Pictures has tapped Mark L. Smith to write the script.

According to Deadline, Tarantino would like to direct the film, which he’ll produce along with J.J. Abrams. Along with Smith, Lindsey Beer, Drew Pearce and Megan Amram all participated in a writer’s room with Tarantino, where Smith was viewed as the best fit for the project.

Smith is best known for writing the 2015 film The Revenant, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Star Trek: Nemesis star Tom Hardy.

Earlier this month, TNG’s Patrick Stewart discussed his desire to be part of the film, saying “if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr. Tarantino, I would embrace it.”
