Quentin Tarantino might be doing a spaghetti western next
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There are precious few genres Quentin Tarantino has yet to honor. It appears he has figured out which classic film genre he meander through next.
AICN has picked up on a story launched by The Playlist that Tarantino’s next directorial effort will be a spaghetti western, and that he’ll reteam with his “Inglourious Basterds” star Christoph Waltz – who won an Oscar when he collaborated with Tarantino – for an as-yet-revealed part.
“I cannot confirm plot details at present (though I think I’ve got the premise),” writes frequents AICN contributor Mr. Beaks.
As per the Playlist’s report, Italian film legend Franco Nero is expected to appear as well.
“The film will be called ‘The Angel, The Bad And The Wise’ and is a tribute to Sergio Leone,” Nero told an Italian reporter. “It’s a movie that contains humor, lots of action, but also a great plot. We have already been signed by a dozen people who will be part of project. Among the filmmakers involved include Quentin Tarantino, Keith Carradine, Treat Williams, fifteen people in all Americans who want to do this movie and so we are trying to produce it outside of Italy.”
Carradine makes sense, as Tarantino often works with the same actors from project to project. Does this mean we might hear of casting news for Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, or the great Michael Madsen?
We’re awaiting official confirmation on this, but Tarantino has been mentioning the idea of doing a western (though he throws a LOT of projects against he wall to see what sticks), do this sounds plausible.
