Ahead of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood reaching UK cinemas on August 15, writer-director Quentin Tarantino has said that if ever got to make his Star Trek movie then it would be his last.

Previously, the Pulp Fiction director had pitched an 18-rated script to Star Trek reboot director J.J. Abrams which, according to report, interested the producer of such films as Cloverfield. The man who gave the world Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill has stated previously that he wanted to make 10 films and then retire. If Star Trek gets greenlit he says he’ll stay true to that promise even if his fans hope her doesn’t.

He told CinemaBlend, “I guess I do have a loophole, [if] the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], ‘Uh, I guess ‘Star Trek’ doesn’t count. I can do ‘Star Trek’ … but naturally I would end on an original. But the idea of doing 10 isn’t to come up with a loophole. I actually think if I was going to do ‘Star Trek’ I should commit to it. It’s my last movie. There should be nothing left-handed about it. I don’t know if I’m going to do that, but that might happen.”

Karl Urban, who played Doctor McCoy in the rebooted series, said it would be a dream come true to do a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie.

“It would be really rad to get to make a film with him. That would be a dream come true, he is definitely an auteur. Whether you like his films or not, he is a good filmmaker. And he makes interesting stuff. So, to me, that is when you get the best results.”
