Obviously everyone's very excited about the impending release of Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood, but beyond that there's the lingering question of what Quentin Tarantino's 10th and - if you believe the man himself - final film is likely to be.

There's been mention of a possible sequel to Django Unchained, but it's unclear whether the Pulp Fiction director will be at the helm for that project. Meanwhile Tarantino has confirmed that he's working on an instalment in the Star Trek franchise, and that if it ever reaches the screen it'll be exactly as uncompromisingly Tarantino as you'd hope it would be.

"Oh yeah! It's an R-rated movie," Tarantino told Empire. "If I do it, it'll be R-rated."

It does sound like things are very much at the knocking-ideas-about stage rather than the ringing-Michael-Madsen's-agent stage, though there is a draft script knocking about somewhere.

"There's a script that exists for it now," Tarantino confirmed. "I need to weigh in on it, but I haven't been able to do that yet."

So, who's Michael Madsen going to play?

A suddenly recast Captain Kirk.

Probably make him a Borg or something.

So, as it sounds like a Tarantino co-writing job rather than a full script and directing job, that might mean this Star Trek project is not the mythical 10th Tarantino film. But what else do we know about the script?

Tarantino didn't say anything else about the direction he's gone in with it, but there has been one little teaser. "I know a little bit about what that is," Karl Urban, who's played Bones McCoy in the franchise so far, said last year, "and it's bananas."
