Quentin Tarantino ‘Star Trek’ Remake May Be Director’s Final Film Before He Retires
“I don’t know if I’m going to do that, but that might happen.“
QT has long promised he would retire after making 10 movies, and his ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, hits theaters later this month, so his final movie may be upon us.
When asked by Cinema Blend about whether his long-rumored Star Trek script could become his 10th and final feature, Tarantino said, “I guess I do have a loophole, the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], ‘Uhhh, I guess Star Trek doesn’t count. I can do Star Trek… but naturally I would end on an original.’
“But the idea of doing 10 isn’t to come up with a loophole. I actually think, if I was going to do Star Trek, I should commit to it. It’s my last movie. There should be nothing left handed about it. I don’t know if I’m going to do that, but that might happen.”
Hmmm, seems like Tarantino may be leaving some wiggle room there to end his Oscar-winning career on his own terms, which should be perfectly fine with fans of his work.
Though it’s safe to say that ending your stint as a filmmaker with a Star Trek remake, does qualify, in the words of James T. Kirk, as going “where no man has gone before.”
