Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' to be R-rated

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's version of "Star Trek" will reportedly be R-rated, allowing it to be screened for those under 17 only with an accompanying parent or adult guardian.

"The Hateful Eight" and "Pulp Fiction" filmmaker's proposed "Star Trek" movie is intended to be R-rated, which would be a first time for the Paramount Pictures franchise when a film on a big budget is given the rating, reports deadline.com.

The film's script will be penned by either Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer or Drew Pearce, with Tarantino as the director.

There have been 13 "Star Trek" movies so far. The series began with 1979's "Star Trek" and most recently included a rebooted trilogy by J.J. Abrams.

The latest film, "Star Trek Beyond" released last year.
