Western Next For Tarantino
He reveals at premiere of Basterds

24 July 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips  

submit to reddit

He has covered gangsters, martial arts and the WWII historical epic, but it seems that Quentin Tarantino has an itch to retreat from Europe and go back to the old country, by making a Western.

The animated director excitedly made his way down the red carpet at the London premiere for his latest Inglourious Basterds, stopping to tell us: "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."

Despite having projects as diverse as martial-arts remake Come Drink With Me (not to be confused with cult cookery show Come Dine With Me) and a re-imagining of Russ Meyer's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! on the roster, it looks like they could all be pushed to one side if QT can hone the cowboy idea into a script, which he hasn't just yet: "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."

Also in attendance were stars of the film Diane Kruger (looking sultry in a Balmain mini-dress), Cristoph Waltz and Michael Fassbender, as well as R&B super-starlet Rihanna who arrived with acid blonde alt-popster Mr Hudson and sporting a quiff to make Morrissey weep.

Check out all the photos from the premiere below.

Sukiyaki Western Django?
I know, he was an "actor" in it which in itself is an extremely bad idea. Hopefully it's nothing like that. I fell asleep 10min into it. Reminded me of a David Lynch Twin Peaks episode. More

RE: Western Next For Tarantino
Everyone needs to settle down a bit here. So the man hasn't made every film he has talked about making. Doesn't mean he has to. He's only mistake was making his ideas public knowledge. More

Who the Fck cares?
So his motivation changes... he also talked about making inglorious for like 10 years before it came out. And with the exception of death proof all of his movies have been tops, so I would prefer he make his western and make it brilliant rather than pander to his fans like fox studios making a comic book movie.

QT
He needs to calm the fuck down. I love him to bits. He's a funny man and a good writer but he needs to calm himself. He needs to get The Vega Brothers done. Then the sequal to Kill Bill with the little black girl after the Bride not the mention Pei Mei's own movie. Then this western. More

Needs to go back and sort a few things first
What about the full version of Kill Bill he's been promising since he made it? Then there's Grindhouse.... As well as every prequel/sequel to every film he's made? Love his films but he's full of crap! More

Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it.
Remember right after Kill Bill when he was going to make another Kung Fu film that'd look like the Pai Mei scenes of Vol. 2 throughout? Then his next film was Death Proof... More
