From what I've heard, he's been wanting to make a Star Trek film for a while. I will want to see what he does with it, as long as it's non canon.
Canon is a lie.

I would say that's terrible,  because i mean it is,  but it's not shocking.  I mean he's never really even pretended to not be a piece of shit.
I was going to say that he's a great director despite being a bad person, but considering he's not a good person WHILE making films, it's harder to separate the art from the artist.
Beyond hating the man, I’m also not interested in his movies and have never seen them. Separating art from artists is bad and wrong. I’m sure his grossness reflects in the films he makes by nature of him making them.

This statement doesn't make any sense.  So you'd be okay with his movies as long as he was nice to people while he was making it? 

I'd like to watch the hateful eight. Never have though. Most people in Hollywood are shitty on some level. Granted defending a pedophile is a very high level.
Welp, assuming he were to behave decently on said production, I absolutely want to see his Trek movie. After two Abrams clunkers and the unmitigated catastrophe that was Beyond, my childhood's paramount franchise desperately needs new blood.
It makes sense to me.

Maybe to you, in this case, but the issue is not that simple universally.

I agree with this,  but i at least understand the desire to not separate art from artist.  What I don't understand is wanting to associate art with what artist was up to while specifically making the piece in question.  "Oh he wasn't being too mean when he made this one so I'll watch it.  But i heard he was being a jerk while making this one so I can't watch this one."
