Tarantino's upcoming film, which will revolve around the Manson Family murders, is set to be released on the 50th anniversary of the deaths of actress Sharon Tate and four others in Los Angeles-August 9, 2019.

JJ Abrams is now in the midst of preparing what will be the final chapter in Disney's new Star Wars trilogy, Episode IX.

Cue theKill Bill sirens: Quentin Tarantino might be planning to put his distinctive stamp on the Star Trek franchise.

Beyond that, there's every reason to believe that Tarantino is familiar with "Star Trek's" source material, as he's peppered some of his movies with on-point "Star Trek" references.

If this goes through, Abrams would direct the film and Tarantino might direct it. However, in thinking of that concept even further though, I think one of the best episodes of Star Trek ever written was for 'Next Generation.' ...
