Rumors spread earlier this week that legendary director Quentin Tarantino would meet with Trek film producer J.J. Abrams to discuss helming the franchise's next big-screen adventure.

A-list screenwriters gathered together by Abrams to pitch their takes on Tarantino's story include Mark L. Smith (The Revenant, The Hole), Lindsey Beer (the upcoming Chaos Walking and Godzilla Vs. Kong) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Sherlock Holmes 3, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation).

Quentin Tarantino is going where no man has gone before-he's developing a new R-rated Star Trek feature film.

United States trade commission rules against Canada on softwood
The United States International Trade Commission has found the importing of Canadian softwood lumber has hurt the US market. Department of Commerce has set on softwood lumber imports from Canada.

Smith is best known for writing the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu-directed The Revenant and subsequently overhauled Overlord, the WWII thriller that Abrams' Bad Robot is producing for Paramount.

There's no guarantee Tarantino will direct this movie, but the idea is for the winning scribe to work on the screenplay while the Inglourious Basterds filmmaker shoots his next movie next summer.

What do you think about there being an R-rated Star Trek? His next film, which is set around the Charles Manson murders, is set at Sony and was given an August 2019 release date, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the murder of Sharon Tate and four others on August 9, 1969. Would he stick to his retirement plan? And it's not as if it's without precedent these days: Star Trek: Discovery has been pushing the boundaries on TV already thanks to the more relaxed regulations with home carrier CBS All Access. Phasers were set to stun, because nobody saw this coming; Tarantino isn't known for science-fiction, and he almost always works on his own original concepts, not established cinematic universes.

David Cassidy leaves daughter Katie out of will
During the same interview, Cassidy gushed over his son, Beau , who he still had a relationship with at that time. However, they had become estranged in recent years, with Katie only reuniting with her dad on his deathbed.

Regardless, this whole thing is kind of insane and it's moving really fast. If he's selected, he will overtake Justin Lin who directed 2016's Star Trek Beyond.

An R-rated Star Trek movie would be rather interesting as we can guess the language and violence-factor would be amped up in addition to the possibility of adult (nude) scenes.
