Tarantino's STAR TREK: Patrick Stewart Might Reprise Jean-Luc Picard Role if Tarantino Directs

The actor said he'd "embrace" an opportunity to return as the USS Enterprise's legendary captain should Tarantino's newly revealed project come together.
Looks like Captain Picard wants to join the latest QT venture into space. 
Patrick Stewart has added his approval of Quentin Tarantino as director of a "Star Trek" film. The 77-year-old actor expressed his interest with working with the writer-director as a chance to return to the "Star Trek" universe. He says a "Star Trek" movie directed by QT would be "gripping" and that his "sense of humor" would be much welcomed by fans.

"People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?' And I cannot think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about," the iconic actor told The Hollywood Reporter, speaking from the sidelines of the Dubai International Film Festival, where he received an honorary award.  
"But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction. So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr Tarantino, I would embrace it."
Stewart said one thing was sure about a Tarantino-directed Star Trek installment: it would be gripping. 
"The one thing that characterizes all of his movies is that frame by frame, it always challenges, always demands your attention, always demands a very kind of open and generous response to what he does," he said. "I also love his sense of humor as a filmmaker. So yes, he would be my first choice."
