Simon Pegg has his doubts that Quentin Tarantino will find time to direct a Star Trek film.
Many were surprised to hear that iconic director Quentin Tarantino had pitched an idea for a new Star Trek film and that he could even direct a more adult R-rated entry into the franchise.
However, Pegg, who played Scotty in the two recent Star Trek movies, doesn’t believe that this will actually happen, especially considering Tarantino’s busy schedule.
“I don’t think Quentin is going to direct it,” Pegg told the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “Because he’s got his California movie [Once Upon A Time In Hollywood] to do and then I think only doing one more film after that. And I doubt, I don’t think he could get around to directing a Star Trek in two-three years.”
Whether Pegg is correct in his assumption is unclear but it appears that Tarantino’s Star Trek script is just one of a few that are being considered for development, including a Mark L Smith screenplay based on Tarantino’s idea. We will just have to wait and see where this all leads.
