Quentin Tarantino Star Trek Movie Officially Signs Mark L. Smith As Screenwriter

Postby Blue Jackets » Fri Dec 22, 2017 7:07 am

Paramount Pictures has set Mark L. Smith to write the script for the R-rated Star Trek movie that was hatched from an idea by Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino wants to direct the film, which he’ll produce with JJ Abrams. That means that a writer whose breakthrough came on one of the most celebrated spare dialogue films of recent years will team with Tarantino, a writer/director whose own scripts have run run 165 pages or more, full of dialogue. Smith became a favorite of both Paramount and Abrams after he scripted Overlord, the Julius Avery-directed Bad Robot-produced WWII thriller about two American soldiers caught behind enemy lines on D-Day.

I heard about this on Tested. Is this the first time Tarantino will be directing a movie but didn't write it? He brought an idea for the script to Abrams but interesting he isn't writing it himself.
