As you know, Quentin Tarantino is currently developing an R-rated Star Trek film with J.J. Abrams. This new Star Trek project is seriously going to boldly go where no Star Trek film has gone before.
Star Trek: The Next Generation star Patrick Stewart already said that he'd love to be a part of it, but now his co-star Jonathan Frakes shares his thoughts on the new film and he says he's fascinated by it. During an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, he said:
"I texted with J.J. about it to see what his take was. I wanted to see if I could get the scoop out of him, and he just said it’s going to be wild. I threw it back at him. I’m fascinated. I love the fact that Patrick Stewart played his hand so well and said, 'Yeah, I’m available. Count me in.'"
I love the fact that Jonathan Frakes is casually texting J.J. Abrams. It's going to be really interesting to see how Tarantino handles this franchise. We all know that Tarantino is planning on dropping the F-bomb in the film, but he won't be the first to bring that word to the Star Trek franchise. The word was already used in the new series Star Trek: Discovery, but Frakes makes a point of saying:
"One can only expect more if Quentin’s in charge."
I don't know... I think it would be super freaking cool if Tarantino surprised fans with a film that involved the cast of The Next Generation. That would blow my mind.
