The two films could include the Star Trek film written by Quentin Tarantino, which the director pitched to Paramount last winter. The studio assembled a writers room including Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, Megan Amram, and Drew Pearce to develop the idea.
“First of all, I think there’s a couple of scripts. Because there was a script being written before Quentin Tarantino came up with his idea for a potential film. And so I think they are kind of developing more than one”, he said. “So I don’t know what is going to happen. Quentin is off doing another movie. So, I feel like we are in a state of anticipation. All of us are really excited about the idea of working with Quentin on a Trek film, but I know Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, who wrote the last film, are writing a script and there are another set of writers writing a script. So I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen”.
More news on which scripts are being developed as we hear it.
