After Star Trek Beyond underperformed in the box office, the status of the next Trek movie was suddenly put on hold\u2014that is, until news came out that Quentin Tarantino was developing a Trek movie with J.J. Abrams. Though some may be interested to see what Tarantino could bring to Trek, Simon Pegg believes that he won\u2019t be directing the project that he\u2019s helping develop.\r\n\r\nTalking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Pegg explains:\r\n\r\nI don\u2019t think Quentin is going to direct it. Because he\u2019s got in his California movie [\u2018Once Upon A Time In Hollywood\u2019] to do and then I think only doing one more film after that. And I doubt, I don\u2019t think he could get around to directing a Star Trek in two-three years.\r\n\r\nPegg was the one who helped write the script for Beyond and he blames the marketing team for the film\u2019s poor reception at the box office. It all boils down to some genius who thought that a Trek trailer should have Sabotage by the Beastie Boys in it. Pegg goes on:\r\n\r\nIt was a big year for \u2018Star Trek\u2019 and it felt like that was not ever embraced. I think sometimes people get scared of the \u2018Star Trek\u2019 fanbase as being a kind of closed shop and if we were to mention \u2018Star Trek\u2019 in some way it would somehow turn all the other people who hadn\u2019t seen \u2018Star Trek\u2019 off. I dunno, it just felt like an odd thing to do. I think the person responsible for that [campaign] is not there anymore.\r\n\r\nJust for kicks, here\u2019s the trailer:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThough I would definitely want to see how a Trek film would go with Tarantino at the helm, I guess it wouldn\u2019t go like some people would expect it to. I haven\u2019t really pegged Tarantino to be into big-budget special effects movies, but I would love to hear the dialogue he writes come out of characters like Kirk and Spock.\r\n\r\nStar Trek 4 has not been officially announced.
