Could Quentin Tarantino End Up Shooting a Western Next?
Everything regarding Quentin Tarantino is a bit hazy right now, as he's just finishing up Inglourious Basterds and still only talking about working on that and even prequels and sequels from that same movie. But that doesn't mean Empire can't ask him about what he might be up to next as he was walking the red carpet at the London premiere of Basterds. "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," he told them. Not so fast, though. "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."
In regards to upcoming projects, not only has Tarantino entertained the idea of actually making a prequel to Inglourious Basterds (that would include the infamous baseball bat signing scene involving Sgt. Donny Donowitz), but he's got a few other projects in the works, and none of them are really westerns. Two of his rumored next projects are remakes: one is the martial arts movie Come Drink With Me and the other is a modern re-imaginaging of Russ Meyer's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. I'd love to see Tarantino dabble in the western genre, especially because he hasn't done one yet (and Sukiyaki Western Django doesn't count).
Of course, who really knows what he'll do next. Like with Inglourious Basterds, it could take him 10 years to put it together. And then he could announce randomly at a press event that it'll be ready in one year's time. I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more from Tarantino in the next few months as he ramps up promotion for the Basterds and the movie finally hit theaters. I think his loyal fans will be very happy to see him appearing often in the headlines once again. If you had it your way, what would you want Tarantino to shoot next?
