Quentin Tarantino Doing a Spaghetti Western with Christoph Waltz?
Now that Inglourious Basterds is two years old, audiences are wondering when writer/director Quentin Tarantino will deliver his next film. While we don't know exactly when his next film will see the light of day, we may very well know what that project is now. MoviePlayer (via The Playlist) discovered last week that Tarantino would be doing a spaghetti western with Franco Nero, Keith Carradine, Treat Williams and a whole bunch of unnamed actors. At the time, the film was said to be titled The Angel, the Bad and the Wise, but since then the title has been debunked and Christoph Waltz will also be taking part in the film.
Since the first bit of news was translated from Italian, some of the misinformation may have been just miscommunication, but Ain't It Cool News has confirmed that Google Translate couldn't have even messed up the title that badly and it's completely off the mark. There's no other information known about the project other than that the film may shoot in Italy or Spain later this year. Otherwise no plot information or anything else is available at this time. In addition, it's not clear whether Tarantino would be directing this project or if he's merely involved as a producer. Either way, this sounds like quite a promising endeavor. What do you think?

i called this a while ago, after i saw inglorious bastards i was like, wow this was a great movie, but i wonder when he will be making a western, i bet thats his next movie, since in every interview he does he speaks for his love of the good, the bad and the ugly and how his favorite director is Sergio Leone, so it was only a matter of time for him to make a western, i really really hope this is true 🙂

I dunno, I'd like to see him try something different. Kill Bill Vol. II was basically a spaghetti Western. but of course, it's Tarantino and Waltz so I'd go see it nomatter what

I'll always be there for a Tarantino film, though it is very sad that this will be the first film he will do without his beloved editor, Sally Menke. She was such a huge part of what made his films great. Rest in peace, Sally.

This sounds promising. Tarantino is one of those directors that despite how crazy he may be, puts a alot of passion into his films and it shows. He never disaapoints me........well he gets a pass for death proof.

Franco Nero in a up to date western? I'd see it Just for that reason alone. even if tarantino wasn't directing

It looks like Western had a comeback this year with True Grit being successful and I'm sure Tarantino being a fan of the genre himself he wanted to do this for a long time and will deliver an other awesome movie!
