Star Trek fans could see a very different film when the franchise next arrives on the big screen. Quentin Tarantino is behind the project, and he has three scripts being written for the film. One will be selected for the film, and the frontrunner is a script that will take the franchise into new territory on the big screen – R-rated territory.
Deadline revealed the following about what is known about the project so far:
“Tarantino has required it to be R rated, and Paramount and Abrams agreed to that condition. Most mega budget tent poles restrict the film to a PG-13 rating in an effort to maximize the audience. That was the reason that Guillermo Del Toro’s $150 million At The Mountains of Madnessdidn’t go forward at Universal, even though Tom Cruise was ready to star. The exception to this rule was Fox’s Deadpool, but that film started out with modest ambitions before it caught on and became the biggest R rated film ever.”
