Deadline says that even though all the recent Trek feature films have been PG-13, Abrams and Paramount have agreed to the stipulation.
A-list screenwriters gathered together by Abrams to pitch their takes on Tarantino's story include Mark L. Smith (The Revenant, The Hole), Lindsey Beer (the upcoming Chaos Walking and Godzilla Vs. Kong) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Sherlock Holmes 3, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation).
Deadline have detailed that one of those three writers will win the project and the word over at the trade is that Smith, who wrote the Oscar-winning The Revanant, is the front runner to bag it.

Joburg Open takes off
Title favourite and former British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa withdrew after a freak eve-of-tournament accident. It's always nice leading a big tournament and especially the Joburg Open.
So, maybe Tarantino is planning to direct the film? The exception to this rule was Fox's Deadpool, but that film started out with modest ambitions before it caught on and became the biggest R rated film ever. As much as JJ Abrams did his best to directly copy the successful beats of Star Trek movies and TV episodes of years past, he's never really proven to have a solid understanding of the characters that make the original series so special. The series' third film, Star Trek Beyond, which opened on July 22, 2016 made over $343 million worldwide. However, with Star Trek only being based on an idea from him (rather than being wholly written and directed by him), we can't help but wonder if this will be more of a side deal for him, than his actual 10th film. His 1969-set Manson Murders drama that he's shooting next summer is #9, which would make Star Trek #10 if he indeed makes it.
The other key thing that's been revealed about the movie is its rating - apparently, true to Tarantino's main body of work, this film will enjoy an R-rating. More on the Tarantino Star Trek movie below.
That rating was crucially important to Tarantino, who hopes to direct this Star Trek and who has helmed R rated films his entire career. Let us know your thoughts down below!
