But clearly, adding Tarantino's cache to the Trek franchise would be a major coup for Paramount.

Abrams, who is now working on "Star Wars: Episode IX", directed the 2009 reboot "Star Trek" and the 2013 sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness".

The director has worked with other creators' IPs before (Jackie Brown comes from the great Elmore Leonard, for instance), but a Trek film would represent the first time he dabbled in an established major movie franchise. Although a fourth installment of the Star Trek film reboot would more than likely be set in the Kelvin universe, original series or even TNG stories could act as inspiration for a script.

However, he has served as a for-hire director in television before, helming episodes of both ER and CSI.
