The success of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has left Quentin Tarantino re-evaluating just what his final movie will be.

Since it was first revealed that Quentin Tarantino was considering making a Star Trek movie, there’s been an element of will-he, won’t-he about the project. That the whole idea sounded unlikely in the first place, not least because it was set to be an R-rated Star Trek film, which hardly feels in tune with the franchise itself.

Still, with one more film to go before he retires from directing movies, Tarantino earlier this year was suggesting that Star Trek may be next. But now, in an interview with Consequence Of Sound, he seems to be moving away from the idea. “I think I’m steering away from Star Trek, but I haven’t had an official conversation with those guys yet”, he said.

Well, those guys have probably heard by now.

The reason behind his change of heart appears to be the sizeable box office success of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood over the summer. The movie was a big success, and as such, Tarantino said that “I’ve kind of taken the pressure off myself to make that last big voila kind of statement”.

What project will he be looking  towards for his tenth and final movie, then? “I mean, I have no idea what the story of the next one’s going to be. I don’t even have a clue”, he said.

We wait and see…
