According to Variety, details of that pitch are "currently being kept under wraps", and Tarantino and Abrams "will wait until a solid script is in place before committing further". Then, Abrams would produce the film. and Tarantino might direct! As TrekMovie reported in September, Tarantino's name entered the Trek sphere after his remarks on a Nerdist podcast in 2015 began recirculating around the web. " Now that he's working on a Star Trek film of his own, it's possible he's aiming to adapt the timeless episode, "The City on the Edge of Forever". "You could take some of the classic Star Trek episodes and easily expand them to 90 minutes or more and really do some unbelievable, wonderful stuff". He also made it clear he wasn't a fan of Star Trek: Into Darkness, which Abrams directed.

Second, Tarantino has said on numerous occasions that he plans to retire from directing films after his next two pictures. And Paramount already expressed a desire for a fourth Chris Pine-led Trek installment to follow up the ehhh that was last year's Star Trek Beyond.
