Holy crap! Really?!

It looks like we could be getting a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie!

According to Deadline Tarantino has come up with a great idea for a Star Trek movie at Paramount and it seems that JJ Abrams, gearing up to direct Star Wars Episode IX and having given us the last three Star Trek movies, is getting ready to put together a Star Trek writers room based on Tarantino’s idea and, get this, Tarantino could be set to direct with Abrams producing!

Little else is known about the project as of now… will it feature Kirk, Spock etc? Will it be another reboot? Will it be a new corner of the Trek universe – the writers room would imply that Tarantino has an idea to begin from the ground up with something.

Whatever it is, we’ll be watching very, very closely…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
