Last week it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino pitched a Star Trek film to JJ Abrams and Paramount, and that we should take the news very seriously. Tarantino had met for hours with writers Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce. The idea was to kick around ideas for this to possibly happen. Rumors indicate that Smith, who wrote The Revenant, seems to be the man for the job. Now comes the news that Tarantino has stipulated the film will require to be R rated, and Paramount and Abrams are okay with that. Wow. There has NEVER been a "Star Trek," or "Star Wars" movie for that matter, that hasn't been rated PG-13.  Of course, we know that a movie rated R is not anymore a Box-Office kiss of death, as Fox's Deadpool justifiably reminded us that a few years ago. 
Tarantino has only made R rated films in his career and I cannot see him ever making anything but that kind of picture.  This latest news will no doubt bring a burst of creative possibilities for "Star Trek," which will most likely go places no other film or TV episode in the franchise has gone before.
