Quentin Tarantino

Following a year’s hiatus after creating his Oscar-nominated alternate WWII history tale, Inglourious Basterds, director Quentin Tarantino’s name is hitting headlines again with the announcement of his next film.

According to sources such as Screenrant, the news is that Tarantino is currently hard at work on, well, something. Those tied to the director have claimed that the film will be a spaghetti western.

Uma Thurman in Kill Bill Vol. 1

Now, upon first hearing this I couldn’t help but yawn to myself.  A western? Didn’t the Coen brothers just come out with a western?  But then I stopped myself. It’s Tarantino directing a western. It’s going to be anything but a straightforward exercise in the genre, no matter how successful he would be able to pull that off anyway.

I also had to remind myself of Kill Bill Vol. 2 which was largely an homage to the western genre (as Vol. 1 was an homage to the samurai genre). Realizing he’d been in this territory before, my hopes are back up.

Tarantino is also making headlines with the re-release of his Kill Bill epic titled Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. While the new unrated cut of the entire saga will receive a U.S. release, it will only be screened in the Los Angeles area. Here’s to hoping for an eventual Blu-Ray release.
