The big news about Star Trek feature films is that Quentin Tarantino has pitched an idea to JJ Abrams and a Revenant scribe Mark L. Smith has been tapped to flesh it out into a script. It is still unclear where the potential film would be set or who would be in it, even to Star Trek star John Cho. But the actor is all for it.
As a guest on Ora TV‘s Larry King Now, Cho was asked about Tarantino Trek, he said he was aware of the reporting, but noted: “What I heard is [J.J. Abrams and Tarantino] met. I have not heard an official announcement.”
When King noted that he would expect Cho to reprise his role as Hikaru Sulu, the actor joked:
“Tell J.J. I am an integral part of Star Trek.”
Cho said that he hoped to be in the next Star Trek feature and said he thought Tarantino is “brilliant.” Regarding the reports that the film would be R-rated, Cho noted:
I would like to do some Quentin Tarantino dialog, as Sulu.
The actor also talked about how much fun it has been playing Sulu in three Star Trek feature films. You can watch a clip of Cho’s appearance on Larry King Now below.
