John Cho Hopes That Sulu Will Be a Part of Quentin Tarantino's STAR TREK Film
We really have no idea what exactly director Quentin Tarantino is planning for his Star Trek movie. All we know about it at this point is Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams agreed on an R-rating and that The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith has been hired to write it. We also know that Patrick Stewart would love to be a part of it.
I assume that the film will involve the franchises current cast, but who knows! With the fact that Tarantino is involved and the film will be rated R, anything can happen! One of the current franchise actors that hopes to be a part of it is John Cho, who plays Sulu.
During a recent interview with Larry King Now, John Cho was asked about the upcoming installment of the franchise, and he has no idea if he'll be a part of it or not. However, he's up for the challenge!
"I don’t know. I hope so. I think he's brilliant. I would like to do some Quentin Tarantino dialogue as Sulu."
Seeing any of these characters delivering Quentin Tarantino style dialogue is going to be interesting! I seriously can't wait to see the filmmaker ends up bringing to the franchise. I seriously hope that this whole thing doesn't fall apart because I want this to happen so bad!
Some early talk of Star Trek 4 has suggested that the Enterprise crew would team up with Kirk's (Chris Pine) father, George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth). In a previous interview with Abrams, he said this idea was his favorite.
"It really is an amazing story. It's really the reason we made the deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could because we really wanted that story to be told, so fingers crossed."
Could this be the story that Tarantino will end up telling? I don't know! Cho goes on to talk about the opportunity for him to be able to be a part of this franchise saying:
“Me and my little brother used to pretend that we flew spaceships, as a kid. As all little boys did. So when you come on the set of the Enterprise, it awakens all of those childlike feelings. And it’s to scale and it’s huge and you grew up on it, it was on television. So it is a very unique acting opportunity.”
Do you have any story ideas that you'd like to see Tarantino explore in the Star Trek universe?
