tarantino210x300Quentin Tarantino thinks he can turn his hand to anything these days, but unfortunately, we saw Inglourious Basterds and clearly he can’t.

But now he’s gone and told the New York Daily News what he’d like to do for his next project.

The Oscar nominated director claims that, “I’d like to do a Western,” Tarantino told the New York Daily News. 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.”

Interested? Meh. The most we’d expect from a Tarantino western is some good shootouts but that’s about it.

“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’.”

So Tarantino wants to take on ye old slavery times, but will he do a Basterds and rewrite history? Though we might have fallen slightly out of love with him, we’d be excited about this news if we knew the film was going to look like this.

StumbleUpon It!
