Well that was fast. Although we’re still mighty skeptical about Quentin Tarantino actually directing this thing, his Star Trek pitch is moving along rather quickly. The director has met with a trio of writers, with one reportedly emerging as the frontrunner to script the new Star Trek movie based on Tarantino’s idea. But the most interesting part of the latest update on this wacky concept is that Paramount has agreed to Tarantino’s stipulation that the film be rated R.
We still don’t have an official premiere date for Black Mirror Season 4 (that first trailer was in August!), but we do have the next best thing. Who needs one promo, when all six new episodes get their own full-length trailers, including that delightful-seeming Star Trek spoof?
It’s safe to say Star Trek: Discovery will end up different from Bryan Fuller’s vision; especially the initial pitch of an AHS-style anthology visiting different eras. Now, Fuller’s replacement Aaron Harberts details how the anthology might have gone, and whether CBS might try again.
A million voices cried out and terror, and were suddenly silenced when Bryan Fuller left Star Trek: Discovery behind. The split was said to be amicable and borne of scheduling, but new reports from the upcoming CBS drama suggest Fuller was “pushed out” after all, with scripts coming in months behind schedule.
Star Trek canon has practically folded in on itself, with rebooted movies following a new timeline, and Discovery returning ten years before the old one. And despite some aesthetic choices, Discovery will largely ignore any sense of the J.J. Abrams films, as well as the franchise’s many books.
Fifty years of Star Trek means endless tweaks to Gene Roddenberry’s idyllic vision of the future, and Star Trek: Discovery will add a major one. Despite a prior franchise mandate, the new CBS iteration will apparently allow Starfleet crew to actually conflict with one another; not just alien warships.
Just as earlier today brought our first Star Trek: Discovery photo, the first trailer is out of this world. Yes, literally and figuratively. See for yourself, along with the latest details on the 15 (!) episode series!.
