Quentin Tarantino planning new Star Trek film with JJ Abrams

Back in September, during preparation for his upcoming Manson Family film #9, Quentin Tarantino revealed that he had an idea for a Star Trek movie, and that it "would be worth having a meeting about".

Deadline also reports that the plan is to assemble a writers room at Paramount to expand on Tarantino's idea.

Sharing it with Abrams, who is currently busy working on the ninth instalment of Star Wars, it's thought they are now assembling a writers' room to develop the script.

If things go to plan, Tarantino might even direct the thing, with Abrams producing.

Tarantino said a year ago that he only plans to direct two more films.
