Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek
Much like Quentin Tarantino’s Phantasm, or Quentin Tarantino’s Friday the 13th, Simon Pegg is skeptical Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek will ever happen.
I don’t think he’s written an R-rated Star Trek script. I think what happened is he went to J.J. [Abrams] with an idea that he has had for a while – I remember he told us about it a long time ago. I think he told me and Edgar [Wright], about it a long time ago. He just put it to J.J. and J.J. is considering putting it into a writing room. We got an email just saying ‘Guess who came in the office the other day!’ So, I don’t know much about it, other than the fact that it is sort of in the mix. So, we will see.
I don’t think Quentin is going to direct it.
Doctor Strange 2
On the same tack, Doctor Strange screenwriter C. Robert Cargill isn’t sure if a sequel is going forward, but has an idea for it— one involving a team-up between Nightmare and Baron Mordo.
Me and Scott have not laid the groundwork for it but what I can say is that I have a feeling that whatever Nightmare is involved with, Baron Mordo, being somebody who considers himself the defender of natural law will have something to do with it.
For those of you who have ever read the comics, you know that Baron Mordo has a very particular arc, and that’s something we discussed with Chiwetel while working on the first movie. And part of the reason Chiwetel wanted to play Mordo was because he has a definitive ending as a character and it’s such a fascinating ending. And I do know that whether we’re attached or not, that Marvel plans on working towards that ending and fully realizing Mordo as more than just a cardboard cutout villain, but actually taking him to kind of Loki levels of awesomeness. That’s the goal with him.
