Star Wars: Episode IX isn’t the only thing keeping J.J. Abrams’ head in space. The LOST and Westworld executive producer is headed back to TV to write and create a new series about a family that finds itself “transporting to another land,” with both HBO and Apple reportedly bidding for the project.
Well that was fast. Although we’re still mighty skeptical about Quentin Tarantino actually directing this thing, his Star Trek pitch is moving along rather quickly. The director has met with a trio of writers, with one reportedly emerging as the frontrunner to script the new Star Trek movie based on Tarantino’s idea. But the most interesting part of the latest update on this wacky concept is that Paramount has agreed to Tarantino’s stipulation that the film be rated R.
