But, it turns out that, it might actually not be too far off from that.

"From watching the different old Western shows and everything, I did it to get in the head of Bounty Law. He doesn't know anything about what's going on and he keeps making all these comments as if he knows about stuff", Tarantino told Deadline.

"One of the comments he said, he's like, 'Well, look, it's not going to be Pulp Fiction in space.' Yes, it is!" he continued. Yes, it is! [laughs hard].

"If I do it, that's exactly what it'll be", Tarantino proclaimed.

A script for Tarantino's Star Trek is already being worked on by The Revenant's Mark L. Smith, and the famed Reservoir Dogs helmer proudly explained how he had "never read a science fiction movie that has this sh*t in it". Within the movie, there is the fictional '50s TV series we get a glimpse of that stars Rick Dalton, Leonardo DiCaprio's character.

Elsewhere in the interview, Tarantino briefly mentioned that he's written a play, and also touched on his announced Star Trek film, which is still in the early stages of discussion. So I'll probably write about three other episodes and then just do it. So that goes part and parcel. It's not me. What the f*ck am I doing?

"The thing is, when I talked to JJ about it, it's not that radical", Tarantino added. We're just not worrying about stuff like that.

"I will say one thing about Star Trek that I've been waiting for someone to bring up", said Tarantino. Look, I've got a situation. If you want a more traditional Star Trek, you've got Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access. And they said, I know, that's why we want to make it. Indeed, while Tarantino is no stranger to the TV format having helmed episodes of ER and CSI quite some time ago, the filmmaker recently revealed that he's secretly written five episodes of a Western TV series called Bounty Law that he hopes to direct. However, past year actor Karl Urban, who plays Dr. McCoy in the newer films, explained that the movie would not earn the harder rating via vulgarity or language, but rather through more gritty realism. There should be nothing left handed about it. I don't know if I'll do it or not.
