Quentin Tarantino Says ‘Star Trek’ Will Be His Last Film If He Commits To Directing

During an interview with CinemaBlend, Quentin Tarantino stated his Star Trek project will be his last film if he commits to directing.

Revered director Quentin Tarantino has previously stated he plans to retire from filmmaking after his 10th feature film, meaning the upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is his penultimate movie. Of course, should Quentin Tarantino direct the Star Trek film he wrote, that would end up being the final movie in the filmmaker’s illustrious career.

However, CinemaBlend suggested the fact that Star Trek is not an original project would give Quentin Tarantino a loophole in his self-imposed ten-film limit, allowing him to helm an additional movie as last work. While Quentin Tarantino appeared to be intrigued by the idea of a loophole, he ultimately decided that if he commits to directing Star Trek, it would be his last film as director:

“I guess I do have a loophole, [if] 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.”

Do you want to see Quentin Tarantino close out his directing career with a Star Trek film or should he helm an original project instead?

Meanwhile, the Star Trek franchise continues on CBS All Acces with Star Trek: Discovery and the upcoming Jean-Luc Picard series starring Patrick Stewart. The new show is set to follow Jean-Luc Picard 20 years after the events of the character’s previous adventure in Star Trek: Nemesis. Unfortunately, the fourth installment of the new Star Trek film series was reportedly shelved.
