Tarantino Making His Western At Last?
Christoph Waltz rumoured to feature...

Intriguing and potentially exciting news for all of us rooting for Quentin Tarantino to step back behind the camera: rumours are building that he’s planning to fulfil a long-harboured ambition and get a pure spaghetti Western up and running, with Inglourious Basterds MVP Christoph Waltz in a prime role.

Actor Franco Nero talked to Italian site Movieplayer about future plans and he spilled some of what he apparently knows: “The film will be called The Angel, The Bad And The Wise and is a tribute to Sergio Leone. It’s a movie that contains humour, 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, 15 people in all.”

Ain’t It Cool did a little digging and found that the title isn’t correct (chances are it could be a working name QT has been toying with), Nero left out the little detail that Waltz is likely to join the cast, plus word that the movie could should later this year in Italy and Spain.

Of course, nothing is set yet and Tarantino has made no official announcement, so treat it as strict speculation until we hear more. Expect this one to keep developing, though, and if it turns out to be even a little bit true, this could be something to really look forward to.

Oh, and in more solid QT news, the full, uncut, footage-added version of Kill Bill, The Whole Bloody Affair, will be playing in Los Angeles this month at the New Beverly theatre as part of his latest programming session there. Which makes us hopeful that it might finally find its way to shiny disc or Blu-Ray before the year is out. Fingers (and swords) crossed…

RE: That's A Bingo!!!
L: eruptus Über-bingo. I'd love to see a QT western, instead of another kung-fu film. (wasn't there a rumour that he was doing a Kill Bill sequel at one point?)  t's more then a rumour. 2014 is the expected date. It's purposely set out so it's 10 years after Volume 2. More

It's a genre that QT is quite passionate about, so I'm quite keen to see how this will turn out More
