The Star Trek film by Tarantino is totally shrouded in mystery. He came up with a concept and is planning to direct the film which will be produced by J.J. Abrams. So far there has been no word from Paramount about any member of the cast from Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness or the 2016 movie Star Trek Beyond will come back for the new film. However, at least one actor is keen to come back. John Cho was in an interview with Larry King, and the Sulu of Star Trek referred to the rumors about the Star Trek film being made by Quentin Tarantino. He stated that there is no official word on it, but, he would be happy to reprise the role of Sulu. This is what the actor said.
“What I heard is that they met. I haven’t heard an official announcement. I don’t know. I hope so. I think he’s brilliant. I would like to do some Quentin Tarantino dialogue as Sulu.”
Even though Paramount hasn’t announced it formally, the project seems to be in motion, and writer Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) has been tasked with the script writing duty. The project materialized after Quentin Tarantino pitched his Star Trek concept to Paramount, and he also shared it with J.J. Abrams. The original report had stated that they were setting up a writers’ room for the movie. Mark L. Smith was one of the writers who assembled last month, and Lindsey Beer (Godzilla vs. Kong), Drew Pearce (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) and Megan Amram (The Good Place) had also been in that writing room, but, eventually, the writing honors went to Mark L. Smith. It was also reported last month that Patrick Stewart had expressed his desire to come back as Jean-Luc Picard, however, it is not known if that would happen. When he was questioned about how much he enjoyed playing Sulu, John Cho told this to Larry King.
“Me and my little brother and I used to pretend we flew spaceships as a kid, as all little boys did, so when you get on the set of the Enterprise, it awakens all of those childlike feelings. It’s to scale, it’s huge, you grew up on it on television, so it is a very unique acting opportunity.”
We also came to know last month that the Star Trek film by Tarantino will be R-rated because the filmmaker has always made R-rated movies in his illustrious career. Larry King also mentioned this during the interview, which can be checked below:
