Zachary Quinto says that there are several Star Trek scripts in the works

When STAR TREK BEYOND didn't quite live up to Paramount's box-office expectations, it seemed that the studio was rethinking their approach to the franchise. Late last year, word emerged that Quentin Tarantino had come up with a "great idea" for a STAR TREK movie which he had shared with J.J. Abrams. Excited by the pitch, Abrams put together a writer's room and Mark L. Smith (THE REVENANT) was chosen to move forward with an R-rated script while Tarantino works on ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. However, Tarantino's script isn't the only one in the works, as Zachary Quinto told Entertainment Tonight Canada that he believes there are "a couple of scripts" in development.

There was a script being written before Quentin Tarantino came up with this idea for a potential film. I think they are developing more than one. I don’t know what's going to happen. Quentin is off doing another movie. So, I feel like we are in a state of anticipation. All of us are really excited about the idea of working with Quentin on a Trek film, but I know Simon [Pegg] and Doug Jung, who wrote [Star Trek Beyond] are writing a script and there's another set of writers writing a script.

Although Zachary Quinto doesn't seem to know much more than the rest of us at the moment, he does take this to be good news which hopefully means that they'll "be able to make more movies, because we love each other and love that experience and I would love to continue to tell those stories as well, in the midst of other stuff. We will see." Last month Simon Pegg also commented that several STAR TREK scripts are in the works, so I guess we'll have to play the waiting game to see which one emerges at the top of the heap, although I'd imagine that Paramount would be more than thrilled if they were able to slap Quentin Tarantino's name on the next STAR TREK film.

Would you like to see another STAR TREK film with the J.J. Abrams cast or would you prefer something entirely new at this point?
