Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has offered a brief update on the status of his potential "Star Trek" movie which he confirms now has a script.
"There's a script that exists for it now, I need to weigh in on it, but haven't been able to do that yet."
That script was written by Mark L. Smith, who previously wrote The Revenant. At this point Tarantino needs to read it and give his notes and continue the process to getting it into production and onto the big screen. When it does make it there, it will have an R-rating.
I've seen rumors that Paramount was not going to allow the R-rating, but Tarantino once again confirmed, saying:
"Oh yeah! It's an R-rated move."
The 56-year-old Oscar winner had already been busy working on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood when he pitched the Star Trek idea to Paramount. The company has since assembled a team of writers to work on a screenplay.
