Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock since J.J. Abrams’ first film in 2009, believes that Tarantino’s film will involve the Kelvin timeline crew.
Ever since it was announced that Quentin Tarantino was developing a “Star Trek” film with J.J. Abrams, there’s no sign of progress on the said project. With very little known about the Tarantino movie, many fans assumed that it would be set in a different timeline with a different cast and a different ship crew.
But it’s not the case, according to Zachary Quinto. The actor, who has portrayed Spock since Abrams’ first “Star Trek” film in 2009, is under the impression that Tarantino’s take on “Star Trek” will bring back the current cast and the so-called “Kelvin Timeline’s” Enterprise Crew.
Appearing on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, Quinto said of the upcoming project, “My assumption is that it is with us. That is how it has been presented.” He added though, “You know, until deals are done and contracts are signed and schedules are cleared, nothing is set in stone, so anything can happen.”
Quinto went on sharing when the project will move forward, “My understanding is Quentin had this idea and they were shaping it and forming it and he is off to do his Manson movie. And it would be after that, that we would go maybe do one with him. Which is pretty exciting, pretty cool.”
The Kelvin Timeline crew was first introduced in 2009’s “Star Trek” and includes actors like Chris Pine, Quinto and Zoe Saldana.
Tarantino has said he’s a big fan of “Star Trek” and would make a “Star Trek” movie rather than a “Star Wars” film. “You could take some of the classic ‘Star Trek’ episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some amazing, amazing stuff,” he once pitched his idea for his take on the franchise.
Meanwhile, Paramount is also developing a fourth movie that will serve as a sequel to 2016’s “Star Trek Beyond” with the same cast. S.J. Clarkson is currently attached as director for the project.
Tarantino is currently filming “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood“, which boasts an all-star cast including Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Burt Reynolds, Al Pacino, and many others. The film revolves around DiCaprio’s character who lives next door to Sharon Tate, who was slaughtered by cult leader Charles Manson’s followers while pregnant with filmmaker Roman Polanski‘s child in 1969.
