Quentin Tarantino wants his Star Trek movie to be rated R

So, maybe Tarantino is planning to direct the film?

If you've been following the movie news in the past few days, you've probably heard about the utterly freakish tale of the JJ Abrams-produced and Quentin Tarantino-involved Star Trek movie, which went from idle fanboy dream to on the studio fast-track in the span of about three days. Tarantino may be the one to direct, and Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce are all said to be in contention to write the script.

At the time, St-Pierre (26-2-0) said his contract called for him to fight interim champion Robert (The Reaper) Whittaker next. Whittaker's new opponent, Rockhold, is coming off a second-round TKO win of David Branch at UFC Fight Night 116 in September.

William Shatner, the original Star Trek Captain Kirk, took to Twitter to make light of the news.

Deadline reports the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie will actually be rated-R, which is a first for the franchise, as Tarantino mandated it so, and that Abrams and Paramount agreed to the condition. The expensive R film has only come back into vogue in recent years with tentpoles like Mad Max: Fury Road, Logan, Deadpool, and Blade Runner 2049. And it's not as if it's without precedent these days: Star Trek: Discovery has been pushing the boundaries on TV already thanks to the more relaxed regulations with home carrier CBS All Access. Still, with both the studio and current cinematic Trek overlord Abrams apparently happy to switch things up to get Tarantino's services, it appears we might just get a darker Star Trek on the big screen.

Health care spending slows down
The National Health Expenditure Accounts (NHEA) are the official estimates of total health care spending in the United States. Private health entities and Medicare reported lesser enrollment growth, while Medicare saw lower per enrollee growth rates.

Tarantino has never taken on a franchise in the film world before, and his involvement is Trek is tentative.

That rating was crucially important to Tarantino, who hopes to direct this Star Trek and who has helmed R rated films his entire career. Sources also have compared the film to Tarantino's Pulp Fiction while noting it will have a budget in the range of Django Unchained, which had a $100-million budget but grossed over $425 million at the global box office. So far, no timeline for the film's release has been revealed. Let us know in the comments.
