Quentin Tarantino has chosen “The Revenant” scribe Mark L. Smith a the writer of the upcoming R-rated “Star Trek” movie which he is producing and potentially directing.
Tarantino created a writer’s room last month with Smith, Lindsey Beer, Drew Pearce and Megan Amram working from an idea of the “Pulp Fiction” filmmaker. Smith has been considered the frontrunner for the job and now he’s set.
J.J. Abrams will produce the film. The most recent three film entries in the series have earned between $340-460 million each worldwide.
Tarantino’s immediate next film, set around the Charles Manson murders, is at Sony Pictures and has been given an August 2019 release.
