That R-Rated Quentin Tarantino Star Trek Film Just Got a Screenwriter

Remember how we kinda thought that maybe the news about a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek film was a joke? But then we found out there was a writer's room brought together for it, and then the news that there was an R rating attached as per Quentin?

Well, it looks like again, this project is not BS, as news just broke that Paramount has attached Mark L. Smith (The Revenant, Vacancy) to pen the screenplay.

This story is breaking and we will get you more information as it's made available.
