But...aren't they working on an original idea?

What sucks here is that he's in negotiations of remaking a shitty franchise, not that he would make a horror film.

He's done a kung-fu/western, and soon a war movie. Why not add horror to his canon?


Don't forget Korean remake (City on Fire, I haven't seen it, but we all know the lore about him ripping it off or whatever for RD) and blaxploitation.

Technically, we could add buddy comedy with Pulp (that's an interesting dynamic I never thought of before, hmmm). Seems he's covered major genres from the past few decades (i'm just rambling now):

60's - Western/Kung-fu
70's - Blaxploitation
80's - Buddy pic (i'm thinking like 48 hours, Lethal Weapon)/now a slasher flick (that is actually from the 80s)
90s - Pulp Fiction (which is ironic because it's such an influential movie for today and he seems to be stuck elsewhere in the past (also is the independent film a genre?))

Maybe next he'll work his way up to screwball comedies and a musical and then silent pictures  :yabbse-undecided:
WWPTAD?

no he'll probably make the stupid kung-fu thing, then take a ten year break, return to the scene looking like orson welles with a skinny head and do that third kill bill installment he talked about doing.  then he'll explode.

Tarantino Says Friday the 13th Reports False
Source: Empire Online March 14, 2005

It was reported widely that "Kill Bill" series helmer Quentin Tarantino would be directing The Ultimate Jason Voorhees Movie, a new "Friday the 13th" movie at New Line Cinema. Tarantino, however, has now set the record straight.

"What's happening with Friday the 13th? Nothing at all! It's a complete lie," he tells Empire Online. "I like Jason and everything, but I've no intention of directing a movie! New Line talked to me about it, but it was a complete fabrication, that article. I would love to do a horror film. I'm just saying it's not going to be Friday The 13th..."

With that cleared up, he says that he's still eyeing Inglorious Bastards, about a platoon of World War II soldiers trapped behind enemy lines.

"My next film is probably going to be Inglorious Bastards, yeah. I've written scenes. I've written a lot of it but now I have to sit down and start putting it together in a script that I can start shooting. And that's a different thing."

yeah, i didnt think so.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

  First up, he confirms in the interview that he was never attached to "Friday the 13th." "There's no truth whatsoever to that rumour," he told FilmFocus, "I like Jason, but there's just no truth to the rumour at all."
   
  He also talked of his planned "Casino Royale" project, which is no longer going ahead with Bond producers taking the title for their own and Pierce Brosnan out of the Bond race for good now. Does Tarantino think they have what is takes? "Well, I don't know," he said, "I mean, if they're going to do the book, I can't imagine why they wouldn't hire me, alright, you know, I like it so much! So if they're not going to hire me it suggests that they're just going to use the title and do something else. I wish them all the luck in the world, but we'll see."
   
  As if that weren't enough for one roundup, Tarantino told the website that "Inglorious Bastards" would definately be his next project and confirmed that "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair" will be getting a US release in the coming months. "'Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair' is definitely getting a wide release," he told FilmFocus, "actually, that'll probably be the first movie that Miramax, under their new company, will be releasing theatrically. It's the Japanese version, that's why I call it that, you know, it should probably come out in the next few months. It's going to be NC-17 in America.
   
  Suprisingly, Tarantino lightheartedly announced plans to retire as soon as he hit fifty-five, claiming that he didn't want to direct or watch "old-man movies."

tarantino splits with film partner

maverick director quentin tarantino has split with his producing partner lawrence bender after a 10-year working relationship. the movie duo first alerted gossips of their separation at the hollywood premiere of sin city - for which tarantino is credited as "special guest director" - when the pulp fiction icon turned up without bender. and a representative for the director has now confirmed tarantino and bender have parted ways, following a decade of highly acclaimed and successful movie collaborations. the spokesperson tells website pagesix.com, "kill bill: vol 2 was their last film together, but they remain friends."

Tarantino Interested in Doing a TV Show
Source: CSIFiles.com May 11, 2005

CSIFiles.com reports that Quentin Tarantino ("Kill Bill" films) agreed to direct the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation season finale in part so he could test the waters for doing a TV show of his own:

Interviewed in next week's edition of TV Guide, Tarantino said, "I'm interested in doing a show of my own. This was testing the water. There are some ideas that I've had for movies that are too long. Most people aren't down with four hour movies. But TV has caught up with my aspirations. You could truly do these stories as a TV show."

Tarantino also talked about the story for the two-hour CSI finale, in which CSI Nick Stokes will be kidnapped and buried alive. "What happens to this CSI team member is going to be horrific. Everyone will put themselves in that character's place and say, 'How would I handle this?' And most will say, 'I couldn't.' The bad guy even buries a gun with this character."
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Honestly, I don't think this is such a bad idea. Unlikely to happen, but not too bad. It would be a format the studios would limit him in doing special effects and make him buckle down and just write for characters. With the Kill Bill blitz and glitz that has dominated talk about him now for years, its a relief to hear he may do this.

Agree, only thing is if he ever does it, he should do it at HBO and not national broadcast tv.

Tarantino on TV

Acclaimed movie maker Quentin Tarantino is transferring his directing talents to TV after discovering the medium had "caught up with his aspirations". The Pulp Fiction director has acquired a taste TV after he recently wrote and directed the season finale of drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Tarantino - who also has an episode of hospital drama ER on his TV resume - is keen to transform some of his longer film ideas into a television drama series. He says, "I'm interested in doing a show of my own. There are some ideas I've had for movies that are too long. Most people aren't down with four-hour movies. But TV has caught up with my aspirations. You could truly do these stories as a TV show."
