Both John Cho and Simon Pegg are out promoting their latest movies, and both are talking a little bit about the prospects of another Star Trek movie, and specifically reports of one based on an idea from Quentin Tarantino.
Pegg unsure on Tarantino project, hopes to return to Trek soon
Last night Simon Pegg appeared on the Brazilian late night show The Noite com Danilo Gentili where he was asked about the next Star Trek and when it came to the Tarantino project, he sounded somewhat skeptical:
I wrote the last Star Trek, Star Trek Beyond. I am not sure what’s happening with the next one. There was a rumor recently that Tarantino might write the next one [laughs]. I don’t know if that is going to happen. That just came out of the blue.
In the last few weeks while promoting Ready Player One, Pegg has talked about the Tarantino’s pitch as just one possible idea “in the mix,” and noting there is at least another script that has been written after Star Trek Beyond.
While Pegg isn’t sure what idea or script will be picked, he still feels he and his Trek costars will be back to do another film, saying on The Noite:
Hopefully we will do [the next Star Trek] in the next few years.
Recently Pegg’s costar Karl Urban was even more optimistic, estimating another Star Trek film would be filming within a year.
Cho up for Tarantino Trek
As for John Cho, the Sulu actor is out promoting his new film Gemini, and when asked by Metro.US about the Tarantino project he admitted he didn’t have any new info, but expressed enthusiasm, saying:
I don’t know anything about it, it’s pretty juicy, the idea. He’s a great filmmaker.
This is consistent with comments he made earlier this year saying he would like to see what kind of dialog Tarantino would come up with for Sulu.
