Hot off the news yesterday that Deadline.com reported in which Paramount Pictures and JJ Abrams have reportedly agreed to Quentin Tarantino’s requirement that his ‘Star Trek‘ film be rated R, comes this interesting quote from Sir Patrick Stewart:

But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction. So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr Tarantino, I would embrace it.”

Stewart said one thing was sure about a Tarantino-directed Star Trek installment: it would be gripping.

The one thing that characterizes all of his movies is that frame by frame, it always challenges, always demands your attention, always demands a very kind of open and generous response to what he does,” he said. “I also love his sense of humor as a filmmaker. So yes, he would be my first choice.

So there you have it. Not only does Stewart clearly feel that Tarantino would make a great director for a Trek film, but he’s also very much hinting he’d be more than willing to come back to reprise the iconic role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. And let’s face it, Stewart’s character never got a proper send off film. This needs to happen!!!! Here’s to hoping that not only does Tarantino officially “sign on” as the film’s director, but has an overall story in place that would allow for some of the classic characters to return.

And for those who missed it, below is a link to one of Quentin Tarantino’s podcasts in the last couple of years in which he discusses what he would want to ultimately do for a ‘Star Trek’ film:
