Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek Movie Recruits The Revenant Sceenwriter Quentin Tarantino’s proposed Star Trek movie is taking another unlikely step toward reality, as the film has now enlisted The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith to write a script based on Tarantino’s idea. Tarantino has long been a vocal Star Trek fan, but the film world was caught off guard when it was learned the Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill auteur had actually pitched an R-rated  film to Paramount, and that the studio was eager to make the film, with J.J. Abrams producing.
