I heard something about qt's next movie being a war drama starring Adam Sandler to be shot in France.  Anyone else heard that one?

Article from 2000:

Those fearing for Quentin Tarantino's sanity may well be turning still more uneasy today. The Reservoir Dogs director is hard at work on a script which contains a tailor-made role for gurning American comic Adam Sandler.

Discussing the project at a Miramax Oscar party with a journalist from the Daily Mail, the Reservoir Dogs director described the film as a gung-ho second world war movie in the style of The Dirty Dozen. "I've got a bunch of guys fighting the Nazis, and there's a part for Adam Sandler, and I hope he'll be crazy enough to do it."

From AICN (note: project will be called "Glorious Bastards"):

For the truly cool that walk the Earth, this news will hit you like a pent up orgasm unleashed at super-speed! It looks like Quentin Tarantino is going to be bringing us Bo Svenson in INGLORIOUS BASTARDS... Apparently he's going to be playing a LEAD role, if not the lead role. Now, when I was hanging out in China on the set of KILL BILL, I asked Quentin where the script for INGLORIOUS BASTARDS was in terms of being ready to shoot. Quentin said it was 3/4ths finished. His plan is to finish KILL BILL, show it at Cannes, begin shooting INGLORIOUS BASTARDS that summer (2003), then do the press for the October Release of KILL BILL as he finds himself in Post-Production on INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. Now, we know he wants to cast Adam Sandler in the film... we also know he wants Michael Madsen. I suppose I also find myself wondering if he wants to go with Fred Williamson, since Fred and Bo starred in the original INGLORIOUS BASTARDS back in the seventies - which this isn't a remake of, he just likes the Title... at least that's my understanding. As for WHO IS BO SVENSON? Jesus... You've got to be kidding me. Bo Svenson is the man that took over the role of Buford Pusser and ran with it, becoming the definitive Buford Pusser in the last two WALKING TALL movies. He starred in the frickin' fantastic slasher film BUTCHER BAKER NIGHTMARE MAKER which I feel is the DEAD ALIVE of Eighties Slasher Films. He was amazing in THE GREAT WALDO PEPPER! Bo Svenson is a gigantic figure and to paraphrase the poster for THE FINAL CHAPTER - WALKING TALL --- there is a MAN! He'll be one tough hombre in a Tarantino war film, and I'd pay $8 repeatedly to see him backhand and pistol whip Adam Sandler in INGLORIOUS BASTARDS... I just hope that's in there somewhere!

The film is supposed to be titled 'Inglorious Bastards' and man, I can't wait for this movie. Mr. Blonde himself Michael Madsen and Bo Svenson have signed (so I hear) so it is gonna happen. Rob Lowe is rumoured to be next on the list. QT said Adam Sandler has a 'kickass' role in the script thats 'tailor made' for him. Sandler has said that he wants to continue challenging himself (in between comedies) with directors like Paul Thomas Anderson and James L. Brooks so I cant see him saying no to buddy QT.

A Quentin Tarantino war movie.
With Michael Madsen and Adam Sandler.
Pleeease god let it happen.....

The Vega Brothers: Long ago it was thought the two brother characters who appeared in separate Tarantino flicks would come together in one movie - now could it be finally going ahead? An insider from Dark Horizons wrote: "I auditioned for a role and got chatting with the lovely casting director who indicated the "vega brothers" movie is going ahead. She says it will be huge because its a huge ensemble, and says it's going to have Travolta in it, Madsen, Samuel L. Jackson and all the Tarantino regulars - but a lot of roles available for young women, because it's set in bars and nightclubs, hence, strippers, barmaids, waitress roles will be available. Tarantino wants to do it later this year. I would so love to be a part of this but she said nearly every male role is a 'name'".

Seb at Tarantino.info is quite positive that The Vega Bros. is just a rumor started by fans. I personally hope he's right and he's the most Tarantino educated guy I know but I did read a supposid Madsen interview that did mention it. Hmmm..

I'm gotta say I'm getting annoyed waiting for work to start on 'Bastards'. I've been waiting for this flick for fuckin' AGES. Then I hear that Tarantino wants to (maybe) start work on 'The Vega Brothers' later this year: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't get how two people can sign on to a film (Madsen and Svenson) but nothing actually happen about the project itself.

Hopefully, Tarantino will be in 'direct a war movie' mode soon....

Hollywood funnyman Adam Sandler has evaded the world's media by marrying his girlfriend Jackie Titone in a secret ceremony. The Anger Management star was expected to wed the pretty model later this summer, but they instead exchanged vows in a private but star-studded Malibu, California ceremony Sunday. Adam, 36, and Jackie, 28, walked down the aisle inside a huge marquee in the grounds of an oceanfront mansion while guests including Jack Nicholson, Winona Ryder, Sharon Osbourne, Dustin Hoffman and Quentin Tarantino looked on. The happy couple started dating in 1999 after meeting on the set of comedy film Big Daddy.

they must know each other pretty well, for him to be at sandlers wedding.

San Diego Comic Con: Both Quentin Tarantino and Michael Madsen were on hand to promote "Kill Bill" this weekend and inevitable question of whether the teamup of Madsen and John Travolta's characters from QT's previous films is still going ahead. Tarantino responded: "I might write the Vega Brothers, I don't think that I can really do it as a movie anymore. I think Michael Madseon & John Travolta just got a little too old to do a prequel to a movie they did ten years ago."

too add a little....

Quentin's response to the fan was, "I won't direct it... I might write it, but I won't direct... besides I think both Michael and John (Travolta) are too old now to do a prequel to PULP and RES DOGS." I'm holding back a huge laugh... Madsen is hiding his face so Quentin won't see him before he takes the mic. "What's this about VEGA BROS?"

Pulp Fiction 2: Quentin Tarantino gave an interview to New Zealand's Aotearoa News to promote "Kill Bill" and was asked about the status of the Vega Bros. movie which appeared dead after comments by Michael Madsen in July but may not be after all - "That's something I always planned on doing, but other projects took precedence. Ten years on , John Travolta's getting older, Michael's getting older. I don't think they'd even want to do it. Not that that's the last hope audiences have of seeing more of Vic or Vincent Vega. There's an idea I have a Pulp Fiction follow-up. Sequels generally suck, so it's nothing I want to rush into. But Bottom line the studio wants it, the fans want it. I'm sure I can compromise somewhere. It'd be my way of apologizing for never getting Vega Brothers off the ground I guess. That way, we could get John, we could get Michael, and we could get Sam and Tim...everyone back. It would be interesting to see whatever happened to Jules and his plans to 'walk the earth'. Hey, just having Michael and John in the same frame would be great. They're great. But that said, I got to write such a thing". QT is confirmed next to do the WW2 flick "Inglorious Bastards" and a potential "Kill Bill" prequel.

Man, I hope not.  I don't know if Tarantino remembers this or not, but Vince and Vic are DEAD.  Hehe.  Prequel it is, I guess.  But then you wouldn't get to see what happened when Jules "walked the earth."  You'd see an even badder ass Jules; an even more ruthless thug than he was in Pulp Fiction.

A little disappointed he couldn’t find him a role in “Kill Bill” nor get the planned “Vega Brothers” off the ground, Quentin Tarantino has decided John Travolta will definitely be in his next picture. The renowned writer-director is in talks with Miramax to do an airplane thriller, with Travolta fittingly cast as the film’s pilot. Not unexpectedly, considering Tarantino’s love for the old classics, his film will have an Airport/Towering Inferno-like disaster story intertwined in it – in this case, the ultimate airline disaster. The flick, which Tarantino also hopes to have “Jackie Brown” lead Pam Grier co-starring in, is planned to happen as soon as he finishes work on his World War II pic “Inglorious Bastards”, which he apparently couldn’t find a role for JT in either. It’s in draft stage. And what’s the status of “Vega Brothers”? According to our scooper, it’s dead as a doornail – never to happen.

anybody else kinda hope he doesnt do this?  i'd like to see him move beyond his "homage" pictures.  not that they aren't fucking fantastic or anything, but i dunno, i guess it's just a fear of mine that it's gonna get really old.  but then again, they haven't yet, so we'll see.  but an airplane disaster flick sounds kinda - i dunno...but that's also how i felt when i first heard about kill bill like 2 years ago.  i was like "they're in kung fu training?  what the fuck?", and now i fuckin love it, so i dunno.  im gonna stop rambling.

I don't know if this has anything to do with Pam Grier beeing a stewardest (fuck it, I don't think I know how to spell that) but as soon as I read "airplane disaster film" I thought about Grier. I also think an airplane disaster flick sounds like a really lame idea, but if it's Tarantino behind it... it has to be great.

The ultimate airline disaster movie? Hmm... 9/11 aside, the idea just doesn't really grab me. And the whole prequel/sequel to PF, or the *potential* prequel to KB... No thanks, not really.

I think some more orgininal stuff would be great. The thing about Quentin is that he has made gangster movies cool, heist movies cool, martial arts movies cool. I'd like to see his take on over genres (yeah, I know I'm contradicting myself since airline disater is another genre) - Ingolrious Bastards has been a long time coming, and I hope it gets off the ground soon. I mean, it's been how many years since Jackie Brown? Now QT is back, let's hope he stays here making us lots of new cool movies!

What sort of movies would you all like to see him tackle? I don't know why, but I think a Tarantino pychological thriller would be awesome!!!

I doubt the airline disaster movie rumor is true at all. It would be Tarantino going to back movie movie land and I remember hearing that Kill Bill would be his last hurrah in that realm. Also, the specifics seem too easy in logic to where it is more likely they were made up. All actors mentioned are former Tarantino employees (safe betting) and the casting of Travolta as the pilot, he himself a pilot as well. Naw, not buying this one at all.

It is true. Im not saying it'll definatly be made, but Tarantino HAS pitched the idea to Miramax with Travolta in mind. It's no rumor, it's a fact.

EDIT: And I do agree, it does sound kinda lame. Hope it doesn't happen.

In a very recent interview, only a couple of days ago, this is what Madson had to say:

Quote
Has there been Any news on the Vega Brothers Films?

Once upon a time there was going to be a "Vega Brothers" movie and then as time went by Quentin decided that it was impossible. John and I are like 10 years older and so we couldn't really make a prequel.

How could we make a story about two guys who before they are both killed were 10 years older.

So he told a big crowd of people in San Diego that there wasn't going to be a "Vega Brothers" movie, but then he went off to Mexico for a couple of days and he called me right when he came back from there to tell me that he had came up with an idea and a concept that would make the characters work and I can't tell you what it is but I can tell you that it is definitely back on his mind and I do think there is going to be a "Vega Brothers" movie.


I wonder what the idea is.... Maybe they'll use CGI?

not sure if this has been posted already but, i read this in the Maxim Movie magazine or whatever its called the other day at a bookstore (i swear).  QT mentioned between Vol. 2 and Inglorious Bastards he would like to do something smaller in scale and mentioned possibly doing an italian influenced horror film.  sounds cool to me.  if he, spike jonze and another inventive filmmaker or two would take a stab at the genre we could have another horror renaissance on our hands.  we need one badly.

Make that other inventive filmmaker Peter Jackson and you've got a deal.  That and Fincher would be great for a balls-out horror flick.  It's definitely time for some good filmmakers to give the horror genre some long overdue credibility.  Enough remakes of horror classics already.

Bring back the vibe, not the plot.

Most definitely.  Darren Aronofsky as well... unless you count Requiem for a Dream, which I think can qualify as a horror movie.

You know what?  Fuck it.  EVERY director in Hollywood worth a damn should make a horror movie.  With Return of the King primed to be the first straight-up fantasy film to win a Best Picture Oscar, it's time to move onto legitimizing the horror genre.  What was the last horror BP nominee? The Exorcist (as I count Silence of the Lambs as a psychological thriller and not supernatural horror)?

I would love to see QT write and direct a Western for Clint Eastwood to star in.  Westerns would be a perfect fit for QT, and Clint would be the perfect guy to deliver QT's smartass killer lines.

I also think QT should make a guerilla low-budget film about Haiti or Iraq, sort of like Black Hawk Down but in a cinema verite style.  There have been enough WWII movies -- why not do something about terrorism, Rwanda, Haita, the Middle East.  Do something political, like Godard did with Le Petit Soldat and Les Carabiniers.

I know QT has done the homage to Exploitation films in all his movies, but this just makes me think of what if a real cool new exploitation film was made WITHOUT the Irony or Spoofage, nor the melodrama (ala Ghost Dog) and with all the cool camera effects and still have a character we can believe in without having to cram in a "hahaaaaaaaaaa", most likely forced between every line.

I know QT has done the homage to Exploitation films in all his movies, but this just makes me think of what if a real cool new exploitation film was made WITHOUT the Irony or Spoofage, nor the melodrama (ala Ghost Dog) and with all the cool camera effects and still have a character we can believe in without having to cram in a "hahaaaaaaaaaa", most likely forced between every line. Of course, that's not QT's style to make a crappy film for a few cheap laughs, but those who have taken his cue or sorta ruining that which he re-established.

DV cameras were born to create non-ironic exploitation projects. You have my support (not financially of course, but in spirit).

Tarantino, Brosnan Want Royale

Quentin Tarantino told SCI FI Wire that he has talked to Pierce Brosnan about adapting Casino Royale as Brosnan's fifth and final James Bond film. The director noted that his challenge would be to convince producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to diverge from the current formula of expensive action set pieces.

"I don't see that they have anything to lose at all," Tarantino said in an interview while promoting his latest film, Kill Bill, Vol. 2. "They've got this gigantic franchise, they can't do anything wrong with it. Pierce Brosnan's only going to do one more movie for them, if that, so if he stayed on to do one more with me, let's just this one year go my way and do it a little differently. I won't do anything that will ruin the series."

Tarantino hopes that the offer of a low budget and Brosnan's return would convince the producers to approve a one-time-only return to the character-driven spy plots of the first several 007 films. "Wouldn't it be great to have a James Bond movie that didn't cost $115 million and only cost $40 million or something like that?" he asked. "You know it's going to make its money back, and we [would] all do good. Maybe we win the critics this time, then you're back in business the way you were before."

Tarantino felt there was only "a thin chance" that he would win the project, and said he would concede to update the 1952 novel for the present day. "If I owned the material, I would set it in the '60s, but I'm sure I'd have to do it now." Casino Royale was first adapted as a comedy in 1967.

Although I'd be totally shocked if this Bond thing ever happened, it's a fantastic idea.  The franchise really needs a shot of adrenaline, and QT could be just the man to do it.  I really loathe their insistence on getting non-US directors to direct the flicks (Michael Apted?  Roger Spotiswoode?) who are not equipped to handle something so big.  The flicks are truly directed by the 2nd unit directors and that just blows.  The last 2 movies were so tired and by-the-numbers, I don't think I can muster sitting through another of the same (yes, i've seen every one).

Kill Bill Vol. 3?

Source: Empire Movies  

It took Quentin Tarantino about six years after JACKIE BROWN before he could get KILL BILL, VOL. 1 into theaters and in between there were rumors of all kinds of projects (VEGA BROTHERS? INGLORIOUS BASTARDS? FORTY LASHES?) that never came to be. So take this with a grain of salt but... Mr. Tarantino himself spoke to Empire Magazine in Britain and said he wouldn't be opposed to finding a way to continue the KILL BILL legacy. He told the magazine, in an interview to run in next month's issue, that he's considering two different spin-offs for the KILL BILL franchise. "I’ve been thinking about revisiting the story in a couple of ways,” says Tarantino. One would be a prequel to the Bill character, telling how he came to be and the other would follow Nikki, the daughter of Vernita Green who saw her mother get killed. Both had the possibility of being animated a la the O-Ren sequence from KILL BILL, VOL. 1. But there are no set plans for what Tarantino will do next and time will only tell if it's one of these films or any of the films rumored above. Or some other top secret project that we've never even heard of?... KILL BILL, VOL. 2 hits theaters on April 16th.

Tarantino To Make 'Kill Bill' Animation (not a repeat)

Maverick director Quentin Tarantino is planning an animated prequel to his Kill Bill movies - to show the early life of the deadly assassin. The film will be drawn in the Japanese manga style already seen in Kill Bill Volume 1 and will focus on the three men - pimp Estebian Vihaio and martial arts masters Hattori Hanzo and Pei Mai - who turned Bill into a ruthless killer. The Oscar-winning writer and director will write and produce the film. Tarantino has also speculated that he could return to Kill Bill's world in 15 years time to follow the daughter of a character killed in the first film. The popular filmmaker - who took five years off after directing Jackie Brown to return to the screen with the violent revenge saga - is next set to direct a segment of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's comic book adaptation Sin City.

i don't think this Sin City thing is a good idea. but i guess if it means more shit from tarantino to come, who gives a fuck.

This is such a perfect fit in many ways. I've come to the realization that Tarantino will be as mature as 15 year old with the projects he does for the rest of his life so him taking on the biggest and right now, lamest, franchise only makes me happy because he will bring excitement to it. I absolutely love Bond but have puked over his last 3 films and puke everytime Tarantino tries to do something mature and artistic (Jackie Brown). Its even better that Tarantino wants Brosnan because with Brosnan's potential, he's the very best Bond, matching charm and wit with the looks to boot. His Bond movies have just sucked excluding Goldeneye and parts of Tomorrow Never Die. Connery was too stiff and Moore was unappealing physically.

Bond Producers May Make 'Casino Royale' Themselves

On the heels of recent speculation that Quentin Tarantino was considering the possibility of remaking the James Bond thriller Casino Royale with Pierce Brosnan in the starring role, published reports in the U.K. now indicate that Eon Productions, which has produced the Bond films for MGM, has decided to make Casino Royale on its own -- without the involvement of either Tarantino or Brosnan. The original film version of the Bond novel was actually a spoof starring numerous actors playing Bond "in disguise," including David Niven, Peter Sellers, and Woody Allen. However, the actual "Casino Royale is a very interesting choice because it was probably [Bond creator Ian] Fleming's most literary work," Andrew Lycett, Fleming's biographer, told the London Sunday Times.

Tarantino to direct Presley  

Foxnews reports that Tarantino might direct the new videoclip of Lisa-Marie Presley, Elvis' daughter.

[..]Director Quentin Tarantino isn’t just directing the finale of CSI, [...] he also signed on to guide Lisa Marie Presley through her video for her new single.

Tarantino has directed Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, the king of rock 'n' roll, in a version of Don Henley’s old hit, "Dirty Laundry." A sneak audio peek of "Dirty Laundry" can be heard in promos for ABC’s "Desperate Housewives."

Tarantino once told an interviewer that when he met Lisa Marie years ago he was "star struck."

----------------------------------------------------------

Tarantino to co-star in martial arts film?  

A source let us know that Tarantino might be playing a part in a possibly upcoming Martial Arts film called "Shattered Eagle", which could start Andy On and was written by Kris Paulson.

The film might be produced towards the end of the year. Called 'Shattered Eagle', it's something that Joel Silver was interested in at one stage (the deal went sour because of creative differences - he envisioned it more big budget, star-driven, the writer, Kris Paulson, wants to keep it edgy, and as independent as possible) and tells the familiar story of a Hong Kong action star who migrates to Hollywood, only to discover that those he worked for in his home-land aren't happy about the switch - and put a hit out on him.

They're keen to get Andy On involved, and he's been contacted and hasn't said 'no', yet - and for the role of an American producer that fills the void of a semi-aid to lead character, Fook, they're hoping to land Quentin Tarantino. There's some interest. The role fits him like a glove - smart, funny, a fix-it man.

'Friday' horror draws Tarantino
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Quentin Tarantino is considering writing and directing a new installment in the long-running "Friday the 13th" series. Tarantino is in early talks with New Line Cinema, where he is scheduled to meet with executives this week. The original "Friday," released in 1980 and featuring the hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees, spawned a series of sequels, including the 2003 hit "Freddy vs. Jason," in which Jason squared off against Freddy Krueger from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series. New Line tried to make a sequel to "Freddy vs. Jason" involving the "Evil Dead" character Ash, but a deal with "Dead" rights holder Sam Raimi couldn't be reached. According to those familiar with the discussions, Tarantino is intrigued with the idea of playing with one of the movie's classic horror villains. If the project does develop, it could be the first film Tarantino directs outside Miramax Films. The WMA-repped filmmaker recently signed on to direct the season finale of CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

Two, if it does happen, I imagine every person who defended Tarantino recently may be recalling their opinion a little. I can't imagine how this can draw much excitement. I don't know of another franchise with as little imagination as this one.

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:

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."

  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."

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.

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."

Quentin Tarantino Retires From Acting, Giving Hope To Hyper, Stammering Unknowns
'I lost the bug,' writer/director says.
Source: MTV.com

During a welcome moment of comic relief in "Pulp Fiction," foul-tempered hit man Jules explains the frustrating nature of television pilots to his deadly (and Hollywood-ignorant) colleague Vincent. In "Reservoir Dogs," Mr. Orange holds a script in hand and practices a monologue, pacing around his apartment and standing on a quasi-stage in a desolate ghetto. In "True Romance," Dick Ritchie hopes to finally put his struggling-actor days behind him, auditioning for a bit part in an update of an old William Shatner cop show. To rabid fans of Quentin Tarantino, such autobiographical references to his acting career have marked some of his films' most memorable moments. But Tarantino is going to have to start looking for inspiration elsewhere.

"I just don't feel like acting anymore," the hyperactive Oscar winner said, announcing that he has retired as an actor. "I lost the bug."

Tarantino, who spent his 20s and early 30s attending acting classes while taking on bit parts in shows like "The Golden Girls," has often referred to himself as an actor who just happens to write and direct. Even after he gained his Hollywood stature, he inserted himself into films like "Pulp" and "Four Rooms" while taking on separate acting gigs in films that could be described as the good ("From Dusk Till Dawn"), the bad ("Destiny Turns on the Radio") and the ugly ("Little Nicky"). But now, Tarantino insists, he has closed the curtains on his inner thespian.

"Making a movie is so hard that I don't want to have to be working on a film unless it's my movie," he said. " 'Kill Bill' was really hard — it was really cool and everything, and it was great. But now, if I'm going to be getting call sheets in the mail and getting up at six in the morning and doing all that stuff — it's going to be my movie."

It was on the marathon shoot of the "Bill" movies that Tarantino struck up a conversation with two of his actors, Michael Madsen and Larry Bishop. Bishop, a veteran of B-grade biker movies, mentioned his script for a three-character throwback film called "Hell Ride," and the friends agreed that they would play the deadly riders. Earlier this month, the film received a green light, but Madsen revealed that they would have to re-cast Tarantino's role since his longtime collaborator had given up acting.

"I'm not going to act in it," Tarantino confirmed, "but I'm going to be involved with it, like I am with 'Hostel.' "

That upcoming horror flick has Tarantino serving as producer, a credit he has amassed recently on titles like "Daltry Calhoun" and the upcoming "Killshot." Now he will serve in the same capacity for "Hell Ride."

"It's how I started," Tarantino said of his acting, which has garnered less-than-favorable reviews that came to a boil with a 1998 Broadway revival of "Wait Until Dark" opposite Marisa Tomei. "A lot of directors actually start out as actors as they're first drawing things, and then they figure out what they're doing.

"It seems like half the directors now were on 'Hill Street Blues' one way or another," he laughed, referring to colleagues like Betty Thomas ("Doctor Dolittle") and Charles Haid (TV's "Criminal Minds"), who also lost the acting bug.

For those fans who enjoy looking for Tarantino's Hitchcockian cameos in his own films, the video-store-clerk-turned-Hollywood-heavyweight offers one last cryptic promise. "I might still act in one of my movies — we'll see," he said, refusing to completely let go. "If I do, it's because I think I'm the best guy for it, not just to put myself in."

For upcoming directorial gigs like the thriller "Grind House" and the war flick "Inglorious Bastards," then, Tarantino's fans can continue to watch for the brief, stammering bit parts they expect. The rest of those movies' characters, however, will have to find new things to talk about.

Tarantino and Eastwood do Boetticher documentary 
Source: contactmusic.com

Clint Eastwood and Quentin Tarantino have shared screen time to pay tribute to Budd Boetticher in a new documentary about the 1950s B-movie western director. The two discovered a joint interest in the icon and were happy to come together for the upcoming special "Budd Boetticher: A Man Can DO That".

But Eastwood admits that it was tough talking with Tarantino. He says: "The producers had me there to get Quentin started, and believe me, it doesn't take much. Quentin's interesting - he's followed lots of directors he never knew." In the documentary Tarantino admits that that Michael Madsen's character Bud in "Kill Bill" was a homage to Boetticher.

Info Update on Tarantino and that whole Purple Haze of rumors!
Source: AICN

Hey folks, Harry here. I know you folks have been seeing bullshit rumors about Quentin Tarantino and a Jimi Hendrix Biopic. It's appeared on the New York Post's PAGE SIX, Yahoo and Various Music News sites... and all around the web. Well... tis total bullshit. When Quentin came over to chat tonight - I asked him if he'd heard the rumors about his next film project after he finishes GRINDHOUSE. When I said he was rumored to be making the Purple Haze of Biopics, he just began shaking his head. "Complete Fabrication." "There's not even an iota of truth to it." When I told him it was all over the web, we both began laughing. Total Lie. So what is he working on? Frankly - QT fest isn't about interrogating Quentin, it's about celebrating older films like tonight's triple bill of THE OUTFIT, DION BROTHERS and THE MUTHERS. However, we did learn tonight that Quentin has been working on a book of Film Reviews of 70's Kung Fu Films. He says not to expect it anytime soon, that it's just something he does in his in-between moments and has been working on for quite some time. Other than that, he's gearing up to start shooting his segment of GRINDHOUSE - and for tonight - that's all the news that's fit to print regarding Quentin.

Tarantino to advise Weinstein Asian label
Source: Hollywood Reporter

CANNES -- Bob and Harvey Weinstein unveiled a new label Tuesday called Dragon Dynasty, under which the Weinstein Co. will release Asian films.

Titles will include "Ong Bak 2," "The Protector" (aka "Tom Yum Goong"), "Born to Fight", "SPL," "Seven Swords" and "Dragon Squad." It will also encompass a package of 43 titles, which have been licensed from Fortune Star Entertainment, the distribution division of News Corp.'s STAR Group, which owns the world's largest contemporary Chinese language feature film library.
 
In addition, Dragon will also handle a collection of 50 movies from the Shaw Brothers including John Woo's "The Killer," "Hardboiled," "Bullet in the Head" and "A Better Tomorrow 1 & 2." The Weinsteins originally acquired the Shaw Brothers' collection during their tenure at Miramax Films and brought the titles with them to the Weinstein Co. as part of their settlement agreement with the Walt Disney Studios.

Quentin Tarantino, a longtime champion of Asian cinema, will actively work with the Weinsteins in all aspects of Dragon's brand development.

Brian White, who previously served as brand manger and DVD producer at Contender Entertainment Group, has been named Dragon's director of Asian brand management and post-production. Based in London, he will work closely with Hong Kong-based executive vp of Asian acquisitions and co-production Bey Logan. White, who will also oversee the DVD titles, will report to both Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

The company plans to continue building the library, and will be acquiring titles across all genres of Asian film such as contemporary action, martial arts, epic swordplay and hi-octane thriller. The titles selected for theatrical distribution will be released by the Weinstein Co., and all home video output will be managed by Genius Products. Dragon is planning a number of special edition DVD package, including 2-Disc Platinum Editions of Jet Li's "Fist of Legend" and "Tai Chi Master."

TARANTINOWATCH: VIVA THE VEGA BROS?
Source: CHUD

Quentin Tarantino fans are used to waiting around for the director to get moving on some of the projects he’s talked about publicly – we’ve been waiting nigh upon a decade for some forward motion on Inglorious Bastards, his proposed WWII epic. One of the projects that I think most of us have given up on long ago was the sequel to Pulp Fiction focusing on the Vic and Vincent Vega, played by John Travolta and Michael Madsen. It turns out that Madsen himself hasn’t given up hope, and he tells me that QT has approached him with a story concept that could make a movie happen.

Last week I got on the phone with Madsen to talk about the 15th anniversary DVD of Reservoir Dogs (which is coming a year early) and the new Reservoir Dogs video game, and I took the chance to grill him on various upcoming projects. He brought up the Vega Bros movie, something I would never have even thought to ask about.

Madsen: I’d like to do The Vega Brothers. I hope that one comes together some day.

Q: Hasn’t Quentin said that wouldn’t happen?

Madsen: Well, first he said he would do it, then he said he wasn’t going to do it. Then he called me and said, ‘You know, I’ve figured out a way to do it. It can’t be a prequel because you and John don’t look the same. It wouldn’t make sense as a sequel because you’re both dead.’ And he gave me an idea that would be really outrageous – that John and I would be the twin brothers of Vic and Vincent. We come from Amsterdam to LA to avenge the deaths of our brothers. I think that’s pretty interesting. For me, I’d love to do it.

Will it happen? Tarantino talks a lot – the guy can’t keep his ideas to himself. But not all of those ideas ever go anywhere. Although who knows – maybe QT will want to resuscitate John Travolta’s career a SECOND time.

Tarantino to Star in Miike's Sukiyaki Western

Screen Daily reports that director Takashi Miike has started shooting Sukiyaki Western: Django.

The site says that although the film is set during the Genpei clan wars of the 12th century, it is being billed as Japan's first true western. The title pays homage to the spaghetti western (or "macaroni western" as they're referred to in Japan) character Franco Nero made famous in the 1960s.

The film is being shot entirely in English, spoken by a cast of well-known Japanese talent that includes Hideaki Ito, Koichi Sato, Kaori Momoi, Yusuke Iseya and Masanobu Ando. The actors took intensive English courses for two months to prepare.

Director Quentin Tarantino is also set to play a role in the film. Sukiyaki Western: Django wraps shooting at the end of November.

The Inglorious Bastard comments are significant. I never heard he was modeling it after the Spaghetti Western. That genre is popular to many people, but overpraised to me. You grow up watching A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but you come love films like The Wild Bunch, Red River and One Eyed Jacks. Everything about the Spaghetti Western strikes me as adolescent. It shouldn't be surprising that Tarantino is still hung up on his childhood and potentially destroying his last hope for a good film because of it.

Weinsteins investing in Asian films
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Setting their sights on Asia, Bob and Harvey Weinstein are setting up a $285 million fund, with the help of Goldman Sachs, to invest in movies with Asian themes and elements.

The fund, first reported Thursday by Bloomberg News, will be used to finance the production, acquisition and marketing of about 31 Asian films to be distributed by the Weinstein Co. over six years. The offering summary said the target is 21 theatrically released films and 10 direct-to-video titles.

With Goldman Sachs serving as the private placement agent, the fund is to be capitalized with $200 million of senior debt, $45 million of mezzanine debt and $40 million of equity, including a $15 million contribution from the Weinstein Co. and $25 million from third-party investors.

The movies will have strong Asian themes, use Asian talent, will be produced or filmed in Asia or will have major story lines that take place in Asia.

Titles that the fund is expected to handle include Wong Kar Wai's "My Blueberry Nights," the opening-night film at the Festival de Cannes, and a remake of the Hong Kong martial arts movie "Come Drink With Me," directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Goldman Sachs also played a role in raising the $490 million in equity and $500 million in debt that the Weinsteins used to establish their company in 2005.

Tarantino wraps scenes in Miike's Sukiyaki Western
Source: Screen Daily

Quentin Tarantino has completed his scenes in Takashi Miike's Sukiyaki Western: Django.

The rest of the film had already been completed, with scenes between Tarantino and actress Kaori Momoi remaining to be shot until 7am yesterday (June 11).

At a press conference attended by 600 members of the media yesterday evening, seven minutes of footage from the film was shown with the entire cast on hand to answer questions and speak about the difficulties of shooting the entire film in English.

"I'm good at English!" joked Tarantino. Commenting on filming, Tarantino explained: "Just as my film sets aren't your typical Hollywood set, Miike's aren't your typical Japanese film set."

Though referencing the Genji-Heike clan wars from Japanese history, Sukiyaki Western: Django is being billed as Japan 's first true western. The title pays homage to the spaghetti western (or "macaroni western" as they're referred to in Japan) character Franco Nero made famous in the 1960s.

The film stars Hideaki Ito (the Umizaru films), Koichi Sato (Suite Dreams), Kaori Momoi (Love And Honor, Memoirs Of A Geisha), Yusuke Iseya (Tekkon Kinkreet, Casshern) and Masanobu Ando (Nightmare Detective, Big Bang Love)

Shot in Yamagata Prefecture, the $6.5m (Y800m) production is the prolific helmer's most expensive to date. The production consortium includes Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ), Sedic International, Geneon Entertainment, Dentsu, TV Asahi and Shogakukan.

SPEJ releases Sukiyaki Western: Django this September through Shochiku cinemas. Japan 's Broadmedia releases Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez' Grindhouse in early fall.

Quentin Tarantino’s Porno Movie?
Source: /Film

Quentin Tarantino has taken on the Martial Arts Revenge, Blaxploitation and Grindhouse genres, and he now wants to make a call back to the 1970’s European nudie films. Tarantino told the Daily Telegraph that he wants to make:

“… a cool sex movie that would take place in Stockholm, with a couple of Americans visiting a couple of Swedish friends… just going out drinking, having a good time, hooking up. If I actually do an erotic movie, I’m going to have to reveal what I find sexy, what turns me on… It’s got to be kind of kinky, because that’s what’s cinematic, that’s what’s fun. Everything else is just - shagging.”

Oh jeeez. We already know that Tarantino has a foot fetish. I’m pretty sure I don’t want to know about Tarantino’s kinks and what he “finds sexy.” Please Quentin, don’t make a sex movie! Fear not, this all seems like meaningless talk. And even if it wasn’t, Tarantino has talked about a bunch of projects that he has never followed through with (his WWII-movie: Inglorious Bastards, for example). And while we’re on the subject, why can’t Tarantino just make another Tarantino movie again? I’d give 2 Kill Bills and 1 Grindhouse for one more Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction.

Oh man, I can't stop laughing. I hope he does make it just because it will show how narrow his interests have become. I mean, come on, he's relating his kinky interests to being cinematic. He's insane.

I say there is a decent chance he will make it because he does go to Sweden and other countries up there a lot to just party. The film will be easy for him to write and easy to get greenlit.

Ten Directors Who Could Make an Even Unsexier Sex Movie Than Quentin Tarantino
Source: NYmag.com

In "Page Six" today, Quentin Tarantino says he'd like to make "a cool sex movie that would take place in Stockholm, with a couple of Americans visiting a couple of Swedish friends … just going out drinking, having a good time, hooking up." Obviously said film would be completely disgusting, but it could actually be worse, believe it or not. We thought about it all morning and came up with a list of directors that could, if commanded, make an even unsexier movie about sex.
 
10. Oliver Stone
"It would take place in Vietnam, with a couple of American GIs visiting their friends . . . just going out drinking, committing atrocities, hooking up."

9. Larry David
"It would take place in Los Angeles. It would be me, visiting my wife. We would not have sex."

8. Paul Greengrass
"It would take place in London, Vienna, Prague, Bangkok, Sydney, and New York, with an international spy searching for the truth of his existence. In between waterboardings, he hooks up with his CIA handler."

7. Noah Baumbach
"It would take place in Brooklyn, with a couple visiting another couple at their apartment. They would argue, and the husband (Jeff Daniels) would sleep with his best friend's wife (Jennifer Jason Leigh). They would feel horrible about it."

6. M. Night Shyamalan
"It would take place in Philadelphia, with a guy having sex with a bunch of women, but in the end, you would find out that the main character has been hallucinating it all, and actually he's just been masturbating."

5. Wes Anderson
"It would take place in an impeccably designed Parisian apartment on the Île de la Cité, with three brothers visiting their estranged architect father. What is this sex of which you speak?"

4. Woody Allen
"It would take place in New York, with a guy reliving the women he's loved over his life, in homage to Fellini's 8 1/2. I would play the man and would have sweaty sex with Scarlett Johansson, Beyoncé Knowles, Lauren Conrad, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Emily Blunt."

3. Paul Haggis
"It would take place in Los Angeles, with a white cop visiting the home of the black woman whose son he accidentally killed. Forced to confront his own racism, he insults her with a slur, collapses weeping into her arms, then tenderly kisses her brow."

2. Mel Gibson
"It would take place in ancient Egypt, be performed completely in hieroglyphics, and consist of 117 minutes of a slave being beaten to death."

1. Stanley Kubrick
"It would take place in New York, star Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and be called Eyes Wide Shut."

Will Quentin Tarantino Tackle A (Spaghetti) Western Next?
Source: ThePlaylist

So much for all that "Inglourious Basterds," prequel/sequel talk which you kind of knew wasn't going to happen regardless.

What's next for director Quentin Tarantino? Well, the guy is certainly a genre-hopper. "Well I still want to do a Western, I haven't done a Western yet. I keep flirting about with it, but I haven't done it yet," Tarantino said to Empire on the red carpet promoting "Inglourious Basterds," that premiered in the U.K. this week.

This makes total sense, really, Tarantino has basically made an homage to all his favorite kinds of films thoughtout his career: a kung-fu movie (the "Kill Bill" films), a blaxploitation flick ("Jackie Brown"), a a grindhouse B-movie/slasher film ("Death Proof"), a crime gangster picture and one with the strands of the French New Wave ("Resevoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction") and a war adventure-epic ("Basterds").

Though there are shades of a Spaghetti Western in "Kill Bill 2," and "Inglourious Basterds," he's never really shot a a full-on Italiano-like guns n' grit movie and lord knows Tarantino loves him some Ennio Morricone, Sergio Leone, Sergio Corbucci, etc. etc., the list goes on, the man is a spaghetti Western encylopedia (like he is about many genres).

Now he also loves John Wayne films too and he didn't say qualify his Western quote with "spaghetti," but if we were betting people, which we are, we'd put our money down that there would be many shade of the Italy-set sub-genre.

It seems that Empire asked Tarantino about alleged projects like a remake of "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" and another remake of the martial-arts flick "Come Drink With Me," but Tarantino response seems to suggest he doesn't even have a basic idea or concept for the Western yet. It's just something he'd love to try. "Well I won't be able to do anything in ten months from now, because I don't even know what the next movie's gonna be."

So a Western next? More 'Inglourious' films? Tarantino works at his own pace without rushing things. We bet you won't hear anything concrete for a while other than hopes and ideas and we're not convinced 'Basterds' is going to do well enough at the box-office to beget sequels or prequels. Time will tell, but obviously August 21 is not looking entirely hopeful as of today.

Tarantino Wants To Adapt Len Deighton, Work With Simon Pegg, Kate Winslett and Michael Caine
Source: Slashfilm

The Inglourious Basterds publicity continues apace with Quentin Tarantino now speaking to members of the UK press. With a sweet appreciation of Brit cinema culture, Tarantino decided to tell us which actors of ours he likes, and just what UK-set film project he’d like to tackle.

Here are the key quotes from Yahoo’s coverage:

    I am a huge fan of Simon Pegg, so I would definitely love to work with him. I also think Kate Winslet is one of the best actresses that ever lived, so I would be honoured to work with her. I am also a huge admirer of Anthony Hopkins. I would also love to work with Michael Caine. I can see them appearing in my movies, it just has to be right.

    I love England. It would be a wonderful life experience to have an excuse to work here for six or nine months. One of the things I am musing about doing is the trilogy of Len Deighton books, Berlin Game, Mexico Set and London Match. The story takes place in the Cold War and follows a spy name Bernard Samson. What is attractive is the really great characters and the wonderful opportunities of British and German casting.

Opportunities also presented in Basterds, of course. Christoph Waltz has proven to be the big revelation here though the cast is full of wonderful players.

We all know that Tarantino muses a huge heap of projects, possibly even a new one every day. Taking on Deighton, however, would give him a crack at the Bond that he was previously denied. I can see it happening one day. Just like Inglourious Basterds seemed to be a forever ellusive vaporflick for over a decade before finally coalescing in relatively snappy fashion, I’m sure some of his other conjectures will one day come to pass.

Perhaps my favourite as-yet unproduced Tarantino projects would be the remake of Come Drink With Me and his horror film featuring a vengeful ghost from the slave plantations, particularly the latter. Indeed, any Tarantino-powered horror film would grab my attention right away.

Ian Holm played Bernard Samson in the TV adaptation of the Game, Set and Match series. Shame to see him left out of Tarantino’s love list… but then, he could have gone on for hours, I’m sure. Who else do you think he should have included?

Next Tarantino Movie An Homage To Beloved Tarantino Movies Of Director's Youth
Source: The Onion

MADRID—While attending a European press junket Monday for his film Inglourious Basterds, director Quentin Tarantino announced that his next project, Jack Rabbit Slim, will go into production this fall, and will be an homage to his favorite director and screenwriter of all time: Quentin Tarantino.
Enlarge Image Tarantino

"I've been a Tarantino fan for as long as I can remember," said Tarantino, who repeatedly referred to his hero as "The Master." "Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown—those movies were basically my film school. I mean, the ability to take a genre or a subgenre, embrace it to its core, and then blow it up and make it your own is something that has to be admired."

"We're talking about the quintessential writer-director of our time," Tarantino added.

A self-described "Tarantino geek," Tarantino said Jack Rabbit Slim was conceived as a tribute to his idol, and is deeply influenced by Tarantino's blaxsploitation movies of the late 1990s, Tarantino's classic multi-volume kung fu pictures, and the grindhouse films of the late 2000s that Tarantino made famous.

Tarantino has already cast the once-popular actor Eric Roberts to play Slim, in a role director believes will resurrect Roberts' career.

The film will reportedly feature elements and techniques lifted directly from Tarantino's past works, including numerous point-of-view shots from car trunks, and references to Tarantino's favorite cult films, My Best Friend's Birthday and From Dusk Till Dawn.

Stills from four of the films that inspired the director to emulate Tarantino's style.

In one sequence Tarantino called "distinctly Tarantino-esque," Slim delivers an unexpectedly poetic monologue on cheeseburgers while dancing to an Ennio Morricone instrumental with a drug-addled Uma Thurman. And in the film's stunning climax, Slim remembers his training with a martial arts expert in China and then exacts revenge on the film's antagonists: a Nazi colonel, a Hollywood stuntman, and a Los Angeles syndicate of 88 yakuza warriors.

As an homage to Tarantino, Tarantino said he also plans to give the famed director a minor role in the film.

"If nothing else, I hope Jack Rabbit Slim makes moviegoers want to go back and explore the complete filmography of this great, great American artist," Tarantino said. "I really can't think of another living director who has made as large a contribution to the evolution of world cinema, and I feel it is my duty as a filmmaker to remind people of that."

Added Tarantino, "God, I love Quentin Tarantino."

The filmmaker, who became more and more excited when talking about the films of Quentin Tarantino, admitted that he has an autographed Reservoir Dogs poster signed by the director hanging in his living room. He also bragged about owning the syringe that John Travolta used to give Uma Thurman an adrenaline shot in Pulp Fiction.

"The actual one," Tarantino stressed.

Tarantino went on to say he was pleased to see that, almost 20 years into his career, director Quentin Tarantino was still going strong with his latest film, Inglourious Basterds, which Tarantino felt was one of the legendary filmmaker's "very best."

"If Jack Rabbit Slim is even a third as good as Basterds, I might just make a movie so good that Tarantino himself will give it a standing ovation," Tarantino said. "You know what, I bet he will."

Abandoned Tarantino Babies? The Little Quentin Movies That Never Happened
Source: The Playlist

Though nearly ever filmmaker has a laundry list of movies-that-never-happened under their belt, it's Quentin Tarantino who seems to spend as much time (who are we kidding, more time) discussing and building up a list of movies-that-will-never-happen as he does actually making movies.

Last week, while discussing the "Kill Bill" sequels-that-may-never happen, Variety decided to make a list of some of the abandoned Tarantino babies. While the article briefly touches on various aspects of the laundry list of forgotten projects, we've made a more complete rundown of some of the Tarantino films that never were (and will probably never be):

“Double V Vega” aka “Vega Brothers” — The long-in-gestation prequel to both “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction,” would have followed the exploits of Vic (Michael Madsen) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) during the latter’s time in Amsterdam. Tarantino held a torch for this project for years—even during press for “Kill Bill,” he claimed it was still very much a possibility. In a 2007 interview with "Opie & Anthony," he said he briefly considered making it a sequel (?!), “I actually came up with a way I could have done it, even being older and dead where they all had older brothers and both of their brothers got together because the two guys died. And they wanted revenge or something like that. But now, [the actors] are too old for that.” He concluded by finally admitting “it’s kind of unlikely now.”

“40 Lashes Less One” & More Elmore Leonard — After the success of “Pulp Fiction,” Tarantino reportedly asked the Weinsteins to buy the rights to several novels by the “filet of the crime genre,” Elmore Leonard for potential future projects: "Rum Punch" (made into “Jackie Brown”), "Killshot" (made into a terrible direct-to-video movie this year, with QT’s “executive producer” credit removed), "Bandits," "Freaky Deaky" and one of Leonard’s westerns, the 1972 novel, "40 Lashes Less One." The book concerns two prisoners — an Apache and a black former soldier — who, while on death row, are given a chance to be set free if they can hunt down and kill the five worst outlaws in the west (shades of “Kill Bill”). In 2000, some news outlets reported Tarantino was clandestinely making the film in Mexico, and in May 2001, a vague post on QT’s former writing partner Roger Avary’s blog led people to think the film would be playing at Cannes. However, Cannes came and there was no sign of any Tarantino film. Soon the call came from his people to confirm that there was no such film in the works. In 2007, the man himself said he now owns the rights, had completed 20 pages of a script, and “still might do it sometime.” Of this list, it’s the most likely to happen — but still highly unlikely, especially after Tarantino's recent claim on Charlie Rose that he will never direct another adaptation having felt in retrospect, slightly emotionally removed from "Jackie Brown" because it was not his own original work. It's similar to "Kill Bill" territory, but dunno, if he tackled this in say, 10 years? We wouldn't complain.

James Bond Project (“Casino Royale”) — Back before Americans knew the name Daniel Craig, Tarantino (as he has been reminding us lately) had the idea to go back and do a “small-scale, plot-driven” take on the only Ian Fleming novel that hadn’t been properly adapted into a James Bond feature — “Casino Royale.” The biggest difference between his take and the final Martin Campbell version was casting: QT was dead-set on keeping Pierce Brosnan as Bond. Tarantino hasn't kept a straight story about why the film never happened: in 2005, he claimed it was because of the producers dumping Brosnan, but in 2007, he claimed producers were "'afraid [Tarantino was] going to make it too good and f**k the rest of the series.' " He also basically has said that the producers stole his idea to retell, "Casino Royale." Suffice to say there was some bad blood here and his chance at Bond has probably come and gone.

“The Psychic” (Lucio Fulci remake) — A remake of the ‘70s Italian psychological horror film about a clairvoyant woman, inspired by visions, who smashes open a section of wall in her husband's home and finds a skeleton behind it...was an idea QT bandied about with "Jackie Brown" star Bridget Fonda. In an interview with AICN back in 2000, Tarantino talked about the project’s status, “It’s a project in the murky future. I don’t even own the rights to that stuff. It’s one of those things where it’s like if somebody buys the rights to make it, I won’t make it. They can totally fuck it up. If it’s meant to happen, it’ll happen.” Since it’s been almost ten years, we’re going to assume it wasn’t meant to happen.

“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” — A feature adaptation of the James Bond-ish ‘60s spy series starring Robert Vaughn was one of a few blockbuster-style projects Tarantino was offered in his three years of downtime following the success of 'Pulp.' While he eventually turned them all down, it sounds like he may have briefly entertained the idea of making “U.N.C.L.E.,” later saying he thought of casting George Clooney in the lead role of Napoleon Solo and himself as Ilya Kuryakin. Instead, he and Clooney teamed up for "From Dusk Til Dawn" and Tarantino made "Jackie Brown" his next project, but clearly the spy genre is one that interests him and is one he may still venture into one day.

“Modesty Blaise” — An adaptation of the comic strip/adventure novel character starring an exceptional young woman with many talents and a criminal past (it's a bit 'Bourne' like, she's an amnesiac), Tarantino has reportedly been interested in bringing “Modesty” to the big screen for some time (John Travolta's character reads it on the toilet right before he gets shot in "Pulp Fiction"). Neil Gaiman at one point was commissioned to write a treatment for the project based on the I, Lucifer novel — whether this was at the instruction of QT or not is unclear. So far, the closest he’s come is sponsoring old friend Scott Speigel’s direct-to-video adaptation 2004’s “Quentin Tarantino Presents: My Name is Modesty.”

“Ultimate Jason Voorhees Movie” — Back in 2005, two years after New Line had a hit with “Freddy Vs. Jason” and failed to get “Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash” off the ground, there were reports that Tarantino was meeting with the studio about writing, directing and possibly starring in what was dubbed “The Ultimate Jason Voorhees Movie.” Though the announcement caused much jeans creaming in the horror fanboy community, the project unsurprisingly never came to fruition—Tarantino made “Grindhouse” instead.

And these are just the ones we consider dead and gone — it seems like every other time Tarantino gives an interview, we hear about a new project he'd like to tackle, whether it be the the 1930s gangster picture, the western, the "southern," Klux Klux Klan revenge tale the Len Deighton British spy novels, the "Basterds" prequels/sequels, or the John Brown slavery biopic. Frankly, if it's between another "Kill Bill" installment (which, frighteningly enough, seems to be where his focus is at the moment) and any of these, we'd go for the latter — especially the British spy novels. Tarantino has shown a real affinity for the British spy genre, both with his Bond bid and the Archie Hicox plotline in "Inglourious Basterds," thought we only really just got a taste. If there's a genre we'd like to see him revive/rip off, it's this one (especially if Simon Pegg is involved). If you're unfamiliar with the British spy genre — which, while it isn't entirely removed from American spy films, has its own unique conventions that make it that much better— Netfllix "The Ipcress File" (another Deighton adaptation), "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold" or "The Small Back Room" and get educated. Either that or something on racism in America as the Klan/Slavery and '40 Lashes' book all seem to center on similar themes that are preoccupying the director; none of which he has yet explored.

Quentin Tarantino Will Reportedly Go Medieval On Helen Mirren
Source: MTVMovies

Calm down. Don't read into that headline too much. The news is actually much tamer than the reference to a classic "Pulp Fiction" quote would have you believe.

Oscar winner Helen Mirren has been approached by "Inlgourious Basterds" director Quentin Tarantino to play a role in his next movie. That's the word from UK tabloid The Sun (via DigitalSpy) who, to be fair, don't have the best track record with these sorts of rumors.

The anonymous source told The Sun that this Tarantino project "will feature his trademarks - bloody violence and foul language," and will be set during England's Middle Ages. The source goes on to say that "Helen has never worked with Tarantino and is interested. If the film goes into production it's likely she will play a part." Not exactly confirmation, but a tantalizing possibility for Tarantino fans.

The "Inglourious Basterds" filmmaker recently told us that he's "one movie away" from the long-rumored "Kill Bill" sequel (which would obviously need a new title). This medieval tale certainly fits the bill of not-a-"Kill Bill"-sequel, so there certainly could be truth to the possibility.

Tarantino is currently busy at Sundance, but MTV has reached out to Mirren's people for comment. Stay tuned to MTV Movies Blog for more info when we have it. For now, just be excited that you Tarantino fans can now pin your hopes some something, even if it is an anonymous rumor.

Would you like to see Tarantino literally go medieval on his next project? What sort of role might be right for Mirren, other than queen?

I suppose he can "literarilly" go medieval.  Except that that's not a real word, as far as I know.

But I did do some research and found, interestingly enough, that there are two definitions of "literally (http://www.merriam-webster.com/netdict/literally)," the second of which means "in effect."  I just found that interesting because I always thought that "literally" meant exact and without exaggeration.  Now I see that it's valid, although generally unnecessary, to say something like, "I was literally about to explode."

Now I can be a jerk to the jerk who likes to correct people on the usage of the word!  I'll say: "No, it's not incorrect; just unnecessary.  Like your face.  Literally."  And then that person may actually explode.

okay. webster's has officially folded to stupid people then. the only reason that definition is there is because the word is being so rampantly misused. there is no way that's always been the definition, and i will never accept it.

Won't happen, but I wouldn't mind this film being made. Historical films of these ilk are always too nice to the sordid details of their time periods - even when they are supposed to be about bloody times. It would be interesting to see a film veer to the left of classical convention the way Roman Polanski did with his Macbeth, by making something bloodier and more outrageous. Tarantino's personal indiscretion's could have more purpose here.

Quentin Tarantino: Brad Pitt does not smoke pot while acting; I don't smoke while directing
Source: NYMag
 
Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt like their reefer -- but Tarantino swears neither was high while shooting "Inglourious Basterds." "Brad doesn't smoke while he's acting," Quentin told us at a Thursday lunch celebrating his film's Oscar nominations. "And I don't smoke while I'm directing." However, he achieved his riotous masterwork, more than a few handicappers think the "Basterds" could ambush the Best Picture chances of "Avatar" and "Hurt Locker." (The flick's SAG win suggests Academy actors will compensate Tarantino for "Pulp Fiction" being robbed of its gold in '95.) Next up for Tarantino? "I'd like to do a Western. But rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let's shine that light on ourselves. You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. Or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti Western that takes place during that time. And I would call it 'A Southern.'"

Quentin Tarantino Keen On Slavery

Tuesday February 16th 2010



Quentin Tarantino tells The NY Daily News that he's interested in doing a Western, albeit set in a different time and place than we are used to seeing on-screen.

Tarantino says "rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let's shine that light on ourselves. You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. Or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure.

No further word on when any such project would go into production.

Michael Madsen Spills on Tarantino's Latest 'Vega Brothers' Idea
Source: Cinematical

Well here's something unexpected. Michael Madsen was recently on the WAAF Boston Hill-Man Morning Show when a caller asked him whether or not Quentin Tarantino's once talked about Reservoir Dogs / Pulp Fiction spin-off film, The Vega Brothers, would ever be happening. Madsen starts by confirming what everyone has assumed for years; both he, who played Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs, and John Travolta, who played Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction, had gotten a little too old to do a prequel film. But, and here's the unexpected part, that's no barrier for Tarantino.

According to Madsen, the eclectic director recently took a trip to Tijuana and at some point he came up with a new idea for The Vega Brothers. I think it's best heard in the words of Madsen, so hop below to watch footage of him spilling the beans, but in short the concept is this: the Vega brothers were actually two sets of identical twins who had no idea the other set existed. However, their paths of revenge for their respective brothers deaths cross and the two will then team up.

"I'd be Vic Vega's twin brother, he'd be Vincent's twin brother and we're both on a flight from Los Angeles, having just been released from prison, and neither one of us know that we're the twin brother of the other one and we're both on our way back to LA to avenge the death of our brothers."

Sound a little crazy? Of course it does, but then again I would expect absolutely nothing less from Quentin Tarantino. Check out the video below and then let us know if you're on board for a Vega Brothers movie no matter what hoops Tarantino jumps through to make it work.

Could Lindsay Lohan benefit from a Tarantino career resurrection?
If there's one thing that Quentin Tarantino can do better than anyone else, it's resuscitate flatlining actors. But even he may have his work cut out with Lindsay Lohan
Source: The Guardian UK

A few years ago, it was fun to peg Lindsay Lohan as the girl from the film about the magical winking car. The assumption was that an actress as hotly tipped as her would go on to win massive acclaim and awards, and reminding her of her days as the star of Herbie: Fully Loaded would be a terrific wheeze.

Things haven't exactly panned out that way, though. Professionally, Lindsay Lohan has lurched from bad to worse, picking up a stroppy letter from a producer here, playing a pair of amnesiac stripper twins there. The few films she's hired for go straight to DVD, and her work is overshadowed by the slow-motion demolition job that is her personal life. The end result is that Herbie: Fully Loaded now possibly represents her best work. That's no fun.

But she could soon emerge from the wilderness. If reports are to be believed, Lohan made such an impression on the set of Machete – the film based on the fake trailer from the start of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's misstep Grindhouse – that Tarantino is currently cooking up a "shocking, hardcore" part for her in a forthcoming project that will instantly propel her back into the big league.

Because that's something that Quentin Tarantino is quite good at. Everybody knows what Pulp Fiction did for John Travolta, dragging him away from Kirstie Alley and the talking babies, and making him a genuine box-office proposition again. Similarly, Jackie Brown brought Pam Grier back into the spotlight, and Kill Bill made David Carradine and, to a lesser extent, Uma Thurman register on the Hollywood radar. If there's one thing that Quentin Tarantino can do better than anyone else, it's resuscitate flatlining actors.

Obviously once they've been resuscitated, they're on their own again, at which point their careers usually flounder. After receiving Tarantino's helping hand, Pam Grier made The Adventures of Pluto Nash; Uma Thurman made the now infamous Motherhood; David Carradine played a horny old triad called Poon Dong in Crank 2, then died; and John Travolta voluntarily chose to star in (deep breath) Battlefield Earth, Ladder 49, Be Cool, Wild Hogs, Hairspray and Old Dogs all in the space of a single decade. And these actors are much more celebrated than Lindsay Lohan – so even if Tarantino does decide to give her a boost, she probably shouldn't start clearing any Oscar spaces on her mantelpiece yet.

Pessimism aside, we should celebrate Tarantino's gift for bringing forgotten actors back into the fold. There's a whole world of once-ubiquitous talents who've long since fallen by the wayside out there, and they're all waiting for his call. So who should be next on Tarantino's resurrection list?

Kevin Costner, maybe? Although he's worked solidly across the last few years, the heights of his early-90s heyday have long eluded him. Could a role in a Tarantino film send him back into the A-list? Doubtful – not even Tarantino would want to reignite the egotism that caused Costner to play a piss-drinking aqua-Jesus in Waterworld and then end The Postman with a shot of grateful villagers worshipping at the foot of a statue of himself.

So who else? Chris O'Donnell and Cuba Gooding Jr have never fulfilled their early promise, but they never had the iconic status that Tarantino looks for when he's casting a comeback. Geena Davis would be a good candidate, because she's at least the equal of Kill Bill's Daryl Hannah. A Jon Voight or a Ryan O'Neal may be able to put their increasingly barmy tabloid headlines behind them with a meaty QT part. Or what about Michael Winslow from the Police Academy films? Surely if Tarantino's films could benefit from anything, it's a bug-eyed character who runs around making helicopter noises with his mouth. What? It'd be no sillier than giving Lindsay Lohan another chance. If you can think of anyone better, leave your ideas in the comment section.

that speculation at the end is the most embarrassing part. does he honestly think Chris O Donnell or Cuba Gooding Jr are good actors? tarantino might not always work with the BEST actors but those idiots, especially the latter, hav shown themselves to be as good as their movies.. they've actually gone on to make the films that adequately represent their ability. in fact the whole last paragraph should not even be read by anyone.

agreed.

plus as far as i know, the problem with lindsay lohan is not just that she is a bad actress but also a fucking unreliable trainwreck.

she pissed off everyone at the set of machete to the point where she is almost not in the movie. she did not show up on the dates she was supposed to show, etc. tarantino has worked with some weird people but he is a professional and he is very dedicated and smart. she would have to act very differently for a chance of working with him.

Who Knows What Evil Lurks In The Hearts Of Men: Quentin Tarantino Circling New Version Of 'The Shadow'?

Since the release this time last year of "Inglourious Basterds," Quentin Tarantino has been uncharacteristically quiet; it's not uncommon for him to go years between projects, but normally he spends the intervening time talking incessantly about ideas that we'll never see. There's been discussion of a spaghetti western focusing on slavery, as well as an adaptation of a trilogy of Len Deighton spy novels, and a 1930s gangster movie, and possibly a documentary on patron/friend Harvey Weinstein.

But our good pals at Pajiba have thrown a curveball into the mix, as they're reporting that the motor-mouthed auteur is interested in teaming up with 20th Century Fox to write and direct the new version of pulp hero "The Shadow" that they picked up earlier in the year. The property, which last reached the screen in 1994 with Alec Baldwin in the lead, was being developed by Sam Raimi, a long time fan of the character, who first set it up at Columbia almost four years ago, and rumors earlier in the year suggested, after Fox picked it up in turnaround, that "Twilight: Eclipse" director David Slade would direct, rumors that the helmer vociferously denied over the weekend.

Pajiba say that Tarantino is in discussions with Fox, and may even already be on board, about directing the project, and rewriting the script, by Siavash Farahani. As surprising as this seems, in some ways it's the kind of pulpy project that we can imagine the director getting excited about, and Pajiba, as they point out, have a solid track record with the news from their same source.

At the same time, it does seem remarkably out of character -- after all, Tarantino's never taken on a property that wasn't originated by him, let alone a semi-forgotten, fairly lame pulp hero, with the power to "cloud men's minds," no less, which we imagine makes all the other superheroes make fun of him when his back's turned. As Pajiba themselves say, "maybe he's just added this to the huge pile of future possibilities and has no intention of ever directing," and that seems like the most likely option; Fox have tried their luck, the director's interest has been piqued, but that they're still a way off from any kind of deal, and indeed, that deal may never materialize. But having said that, stranger things have happened...

Quentin Tarantino Reveals Details on Potential New Film KILLER CROW
by Dave Trumbore; Collider

If you’re a fan of director Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist history films Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, you’ll be happy to hear there might be a third film in the series on the horizon. Tentatively titled Killer Crow, the film was inspired by the creative process of making Inglourious Basterds and would take place in a similar timeline: in 1944 after the Invasion of Normandy. It would center on a group of black soldiers who go AWOL. Though it’s only about half-written, Tarantino seems to have a pretty good foundation already.

Here’s what Tarantino revealed about Killer Crow in a recent interview with The Root (via Empire):

“…My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f–ked over by the American military and kind of go apes–t. They basically — the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an “Apache resistance” — [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland.

So that was always going to be part of it. And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It’s ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it…That would be the third of the trilogy. It would be [connected to] Inglourious Basterds, too, because Inglourious Basterds are in it, but it is about the soldiers. It would be called Killer Crow or something like that.”

Quentin Tarantino Reveals His Idea For A Sci-Fi Feature
by Brent McKnight
http://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/scifi/quentin-tarantino-reveals-idea-scifi-feature.html (http://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/scifi/quentin-tarantino-reveals-idea-scifi-feature.html)

Quentin Tarantino is a busy man. Talk of his grim, dirty western, The Hateful Eight, has heated up again, and at San Diego Comic-Con he revealed plans for a crossover Django Unchained/Zorro comic, which could be fun. And while he has an affinity for kung-fu flicks, pop culture, and B-movies of all varieties, he’s never expressed much of an interest science fiction. Sure, he’s mentions genre films in his movies now and again, but he’s never talked much about making one of his own, at least until now.

During the Dynamite Comics panel that went down over the weekend at Comic-Con a fan asked the Pulp Fiction director about the possibility of making the jump from gritty westerns and crime pictures to something a little more otherworldly. Here is his response:

If you had asked me a few years ago I would have said, ‘Nah, not really, I don’t know.’ But I have a little idea right now. It’s a little flower, you know, like a bean sprout, but those tend to grow into stalks. So this is the first time I’ll be able to say ‘maybe.’ It won’t be a spaceship sci-fi, it’ll be earthbound… A series that I would like to put a spin on is the Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. I want to take it from the pod people’s perspective, so you’re actually rooting for the pod people. I don’t think they’re so bad.

This isn’t an imminent thing, so don’t expect to see a Quentin Tarantino-directed sci-fi film in your local theater anytime in the next few years, if this ever actually materializes. Still, the idea is definitely an intriguing one. Like he says, this is the first time the subject has ever really come up, and he’s obviously been giving it at least some thought.

And of course, Tarantino would want to make a pod-people movie from their point of view. This is, after all, a man who has made fans empathize with criminals, murderers, outlaws, and miscreants of all varieties over the years. Hell, when John Travolta blows off Marvin’s head in Samuel L. Jackson’s car in Pulp Fiction, you, like the character, are more concerned that they may get pulled over than with the fact he killed a guy in the back seat.

If nothing else, this would give Tarantino an opportunity to reference all kinds of obscure sci-fi films that can only be found on grainy, bootleg VHS tapes, or something like that. We’re talking visually, with character names, and in dialogue, he could go crazy and take his films in a direction he’s never gone before. Can’t you just picture the sharp, fast-paced conversations full of allusions and oblique mentions of random science fiction movies? That sounds like it could be a fun time to us. This was even on our Christmas wish-list last year.

Are you interested in seeing Tarantino maybe, possibly, some day far down the road, make a sci-fi film?

He must be OBSESSED with Australia. Mad Max, BMX Bandits, Wolf Creek. He used Zoe Bell in 4 of his films ( wait, she's a kiwi. ) He recruited Jon Jarratt to play one of the aussie bastards at the end of Django, played an australian himself entirely unconvincingly but OWNED it so hard we had to hand it to him. This guy has been all over the world, and I think what he sees in Australia is a kind of vast unmarked territory. We've talked on this board for years about how not much good cinema has come out of the country in general.  I think he's so fascinated with the environment and culture of the place, but above all the PEOPLE, and the history which seems to mirror America's in so many ways but I certainly don't know shit about...

That was my favourite film years ago as a young lad. Couldn't believe something that good came out of Australia.
Watched it again a couple of years ago, wasn't as good as I remembered but still a pretty impressive piece of Australian filmmaking. This kinda was John Hillcoat's first attempt a McCarthy (he couldn't get the rights to Blood Meridian). Anyway, Andrew Dominik deserves BM more than Hillcoat (though Hillcoat's face very slightly reminds me of The Judge).

Quentin Tarantino Talks Up His 1970 Project At Lumičre Festival
via Deadline

Quentin Tarantino took a deep dive into 1970 during a masterclass at the Lumičre Festival here in Lyon this evening. The filmmaker said he’s been researching for four years that particular year and how it marked a turning point for American and international cinema. What he’s going to do with the research for now remains unclear. “Am I going to write a book? Maybe. Is it going to be a six-part podcast? Maybe. A feature documentary? Maybe. I’m figuring it out,” he said, calling it a “work in progress” before taking the packed house through what he’s discovered so far. Lyon is the first place he’s publicly testing that out, he said.

Tarantino was greeted with a standing ovation by about 2000 people at the Auditorium of Lyon tonight as he mounted the stage. He was joined by Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux who also runs this event where Tarantino was memorably and emotionally honored in 2013.

Now in its eighth edition, this is a festival close to Tarantino’s heart. It’s largely a retrospective with hundreds of restored films, thematic strands and uncovered gems. This year, the filmmaker has curated a group of 14 films from 1970 which he’s been presenting throughout the week. They range from Arthur Hiller’s Love Story to Dario Argento’s The Bird With The Crystal Plumage; Claude Chabrol’s The Butcher; Billy Wilder’s The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes; Bob Rafelson’s Five Easy Pieces; Jack Nicholson’s Drive, He Said; Russ Meyer’s Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls; and Robert Altman’s MASH.

The latter film was being screened following the masterclass during which Tarantino admitted to not having had a great relationship with the late Altman. “He didn’t like me and I didn’t like him,” but Tarantino loves the film. When MASH won the Palme d’Or in Cannes, Tarantino said it was the first and only time the festival officially recognized that it divided the jury — “a good portion” wanted Stuart Hagmann’s romantic drama The Strawberry Statement to win. Frémaux remarked that was the only time that’s happened in Cannes because the rules have been changed so that such an acknowledgement won’t be made public again.

Tarantino was also not a fan of the multi-Emmy-winning TV series based on MASH which for a time dwarfed the movie. But he was heartened to say, “I do believe the film is coming back and taking its place as the true MASH.”

This was a film, he said, that Fox “wasn’t paying any attention to” in 1970 which was also the year of Tora! Tora! Tora! and Patton. “They had two bigger fish to fry, then out comes MASH. Even though it takes place in Korea, it was the first movie to truly deal with the dilemma of Vietnam. But it was also a service comedy like no other. It’s awash in blood and deals with the meat grinder aspect of war. The characters only choice of dealing with the dehumanization that war is to have a stoned mentality and get drunk. The movie could not have been made any year but that year.”

Asked why he has chosen to focus on 1970, Tarantino cited the 2009 book by Mark Harris, Pictures Of A Revolution: Five Movies And The Birth Of The New Hollywood. The book chronicles the “real emergence of the New Hollywood,” Tarantino explained, and noted that “By the end of 1967, new Hollywood had won, only they didn’t know it yet. And Old Hollywood was over by 67 even though they didn’t know it yet.” He called Pictures Of A Revolution “the best cinema book written this decade.”

By 1970, Tarantino said, “New Hollywood was the Hollywood and anything that even smacked of Old Hollywood was dead on arrival.” The filmmaker said he became interested in when the revolution was won and, “not coincidentally, I was alive in 1970 and very conscious at 7 years old when my parents were taking me to all types of movies.” Now researching that year, he said, “the more I started going to the library and looking up newspaper articles of what it was like, I realized New Hollywood had won the revolution but whether it would survive wasn’t clear. Cinema had changed so drastically that Hollywood had alienated the family audience.”

And, although they were big fans, “the hippie audience wasn’t really moviegoers. Society demanded (the Hollywood new wave) but that doesn’t mean that they supported it as a business model and it made me realize that New Hollywood cinema from 1970-76 at the very least was actually more fragile than I thought it was. That experiment could have died in 1970.” He cited films like those that he’s showing here along with Carnal Knowledge, The Godfather, The Exorcist and Chinatown. But if MASH or Five Easy Pieces hadn’t worked in 1970, “It’s doubtful there would have been a Godfather or an Exorcist.”

But, he hasn’t set out to make a Top 10 list. “Oddly enough, it was the films on the lower end of the Top 30 or 40, which, while they weren’t as good, in a weird way were more interesting to me… I’m always going to come at it from a critical or cinephile perspective but I wanted to put that in the minor and make it more as a historian or a sociologist.”

As part of his research, Tarantino says he’s been watching prints, DVDs, old videos and cable as well as reading reviews from the day. “That’s how I found the think pieces of the time. ‘What’s wrong with movies?’ ‘Movies have become scary,’ ‘Can Hollywood survive’.” It was a time “like a werewolf where the skeleton changes in An American Werewolf In London,” he said to laughter.

Patterns have emerged during the research. “There were a lot of promises made of possibilities of a new cinema. It was almost like, could Hollywood handle this kind of freedom? Could the public handle it? The freedom seemed limitless. Directors could adapt any book, could shoot anything. There were no restrictions and that was maybe untenable.”

“If you ask me, the promise was fulfilled,” he continued. But there were casualties. That included the possibility that a new “genuine black cinema” would emerge. He cited Hal Ashby’s The Landlord (written by Bill Gunn), along with Ossie Davis’ directorial debut Cotton Comes To Harlem and Melvin Van Peebles’ Watermelon Man. He also pointed to films such as Paul Bogart’s Halls Of Anger and Brian De Palma’s Hi, Mom! which were making an impact.

But “Blaxploitation” ended up taking the place of this promise, said Tarantino. Despite being a fan of that genre, he said, “Now I see Blaxploitation did derail a real rising voice.”

Same goes for erotic cinema. “There was the promise that eroticism in cinema would be taken out of the raincoat crowd and would achieve mainstream success and play in nice theaters, particularly for couples. We had some wonderful artists at that time like Russ Meyer and Ken Russell. That worked for a little while but ultimately a lot of them went back to porno and sexploitation.”

Some of Tarantino’s other touchstones from 1970, he said, include Leonard Horn’s The Magic Garden Of Stanley Sweetheart starring Don Johnson; James Bridge’s The Baby Maker with Barbara Hershey; Herbert Ross’ The Owl And The Pussycat with Barbra Streisand and George Segal; and Carl Reiner’s Where’s Poppa?

“I remember the experience of being in the movie theater vividly with the more adult movies. I remember the audience reaction. There was naughty blue humor that pushed the boundaries of the time and some of that was going over my head at seven, but I remember the hearing the audiences laugh. They weren’t used to the jokes being this dirty. These were contraband giggles they were having.”

Rather than focus only on Hollywood cinema, Tarantino has expanded the horizon to include international filmmaking from the period. He noted that the era brought Enzo Barboni’s They Call Me Trinity with Terrence Hill and Bud Spencer. That film, he said, changed the spaghetti Western by turning on the laughs. “The comic quality of the movie then affects all other spaghetti westerns after that.” Also in Italy, Dario Argento created the giallo genre of bloody murder mysteries.

In Asian cinema Yu Wang’s Hong Kong action drama The Chinese Boxer “was the first official film that we now think of as a Kung-Fu movie.” In Japan, Baby Cart At The River Styx by Kenji Misumi was “one of the great action movies of all time… Never had an action film been that awash in blood and filmed so beautifully and amazing. The blood in that movie is just a thing of beauty.”

As he wrapped up, Tarantino told the Lyon audience. “If the subject intrigues you and makes you do a dive like I have, I think you find a lot of films that are interesting. Don’t get too hung up in classification of good and bad, because truly interesting is where it’s at… The idea is to go into these films and take it where they’re going and where the directors are taking you.”

Sources say that Tarantino is putting the finishing touches on the script and that Brad Pitt, who worked with the filmmaker on Basterds, and Jennifer Lawrence have been approached. Studios could receive the package after Labor Day, according to one source. The plan is to shoot in 2018, possibly in the summer.

According to a random Facebook headline, he's also courting Margot Robbie for Sharon Tate.

The whole thing is interesting. It being Tarantino, this could go either way. For now, I'm curiously optimistic. I want to see what he does with 1969.

Amazing.

As for thoughts on this, I feel the project is too nascent but have a deep fascination with Manson as Cult Reverberation and era monster. A good write up on this, from BMD's Lindsey Romain:

if he's make this it will surely be a big change in tone from his previously films? he can't make the violence "cool" in this in any way.

i read today that james franco is making a film about charles bukowski too. they are not comparable in any ways ofc, but you're on thin ice when you make films from the POV of disgusting pigs, or if you romanticize anything about these people. need too show respect etc. you can't have charles manson slitting up sharon tate to, i don't know, an kanye west song.

Agreed. I thought that he reached his logical limit stylistically with his last film which was violent, irreverent, nihilistic and all that good stuff.

The obvious joke is that this becomes some sort of alt-history revenge-fetish film where Polanski hunts down the family or something. Which would be pretty lame.

He'll have to switch things up/work really hard to make this bit of potentially transgressive cinema compelling.

I'm not usually one to make an argument for tastefulness or whatever but I would hope that trying something different will bring out something fresh in his writing/directing.

As for Kanye songs, they'll use Monster in the trailer.

Have any of you guys heard Manson's music? It's wistful and Romantic in this creepy (sometimes almost beautiful) outsider music way. I could see it work in a QT film.

I hope it won't be a revenge fantasy again. That's all. I like Django more than Inglourious Basterds, but I enjoy them in a weird way: I can watch the scenes with some kind of pleasure while thinking, after, that they are really stupid...I don't buy at all how "cinema" saves history or whatever the end of Basterds is trying to say. It's only a childish pleasure. Django did it in a honest way. "Yeah, let's watch them die." +Django had some kind of story...

Anyway, I loved The Hateful Eight. It seemed to be some kind of masterwork. The new one will probably be, well, something new. (But we never know with Tarantino: he's a one stop forward/one step back kind of director, isn't he?)

What I find most interesting in Tarantino's retelling of this is the potential for exploring the multiple plotlines leading up to and after the murders. He's always had a knack for playing with the chronology of a story to reveal new details from the different perspectives it's shown. I think that where he could fudge with history a bit is in what these separate chronologies bring to light about the case.

One of Tarantino's favorite topics of Race shows it's face again here, with Manson's preaching of a coming Race war and planning the murder scene to frame the Black Panthers. I wonder how it will reflect the current climate we're in.

I read on the IMDB trivia page that Brad Pitt and DiCaprio is rumored for this. Margot Robbie is also rumored to play Sharon Tate.

God, the more I think about this, the more I want to see it. This seems like something new and refreshing after his last three films.
