Los Angeles, Dec 8 (PTI) Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's proposed "Star Trek" movie is reportedly intended to be rated R.

According to Deadline, if reports turn out to be true, the project would mark a first 'R-rated' movie for the Paramount Pictures franchise and a rarity in the realm of big-budget tentpole movies.

The report also says screenwriters Mark L Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce are in the running to pen the script, with Smith as the apparent frontrunner. The plan is for Tarantino to direct.

There have been 13 "Star Trek" movies thus far, beginning with 1979's "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and most recently including a rebooted trilogy overseen by J J Abrams. PTI SHD SHD .
