Quentin Tarantino's next Few films until he retires

Jack Lineman

Well Tarantino always dose a lot of taking about future films that he might make and he usually gets to some of them made. He has said several times in the last few years that when he turns 60 he will stop directing films and write novels and books about film. SO here is a list of films that he has been taking about making durring the last 3-4 years.

  • A Gangster Film
  • John Brown Biopic (STARING HIMSELF)
  • Bernard Samson Film (BASED ON NOVELS “Berlin Game”, “Mexico Set” & “London Match” BY Len Deigton)
  • Forty Lashes Less One (BASED ON THE NOVEL BY Elmore Lenonard)
  • Harvey Weinstein Documentary
  • Inglourious Basterds Prequel (THE ONLY ONE I HOPE HE DOSE NOT MAKE BECAUSE Basterds IS MY FAVORITE FILM THAT HE HAS MADE)
  • Kill Bill 3
  • Romantic Comedy
  • Young Elvis Getting the Courage to walk into Sun Records
There has also been some rumors the last few days about Tarantino Making Dracula film but they are probably false. SO What do you guys out there think about these ideas?

I’d like to see his take on the rom-com genre. Mix Pulp Fiction and How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, with Hugh Grant and Katherine Heigl starring.

Please, do you mean to suggest this topic only merits one thread, Nathan? Do you?

Out of those the most interesting ones to me are Kill Bill Vol. 3, John Brown Biopic and Gangster film.

I personally wanna see Tarantino finally do a full on western, he’s always tipped his hat to them but I think him making an actual one would be great. I also wanna see what he could do with the Sci-fi genre.

Though honestly I wan’t him to just get started on anything right now.

I want to see him do his slavery exploitation picture, so Spike Lee’s head will explode Scanners Style.

He is supposedly calling it A Southern.

If it gets made, I would bet even David Duke would find the film racist

@Grawford: This topic doesn’t even warrant a single thread.

Anyway, I think Tarantino would BOMB a western. Even though he’s made a career out of alluding to them, I just don’t think he can pull off a straight-forward “western” period film. Though, I’d check out Kill Bill Vol. 3 surely, perhaps he can redeem himself. John Brown would be an interesting topic and I think QT might actually be the right fit for directing it (NOT starring in it? wtf?), could be a very bizarre success.

I think Quentin could make an incredible western.

I hope he manages to make as many movies as he can before he hits 60, 13 years left.

A satire on himself.

I would absolutely love to see him to a 20s gangster movie, a western, and a noir.

Also Malik, that would be great, but I doubt he would do it. Too much ego.

@ Den: How do did you come across the fact he would call it “A Southern”?

Can he just go ahead and retire now?

How about a movie with long scenes of unrealistic dialog, tons of references to other films, intense bursts of violence and a non-linear timeline? Yeah that would be cool.

Only kidding, I’m sick to death of him. I wouldn’t mind a film where he tried to get rid of the gimmicks and just make something real, so a rom-com or an Elvis film would be okay. But for God’s sake, no more exploitation pictures.

QT has stated that film makers don’t make good films after a certain age and should retire before they dry up. I don’t necessarily agree with that statement but Inglorious Basterds certainly lends credence to his argument.

I think Tarantino should make a silent film. I don’t think he could handle it.

“dread central is claiming he is looking at European castles for a Dracula film”
Dracula and the Vampire genre got plenty of beatings over the years, don’t think that QT can do any new harm.

I thought I’d heard he was doing a remake of ‘Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!’ starring pornstar Tera Patrick…? or that he was considering doing a straight-up porn film…?

off topic, but oh well hate this topic,

George Hamilton has said he is trying to get a sequel to Love at First Bite funded, am I the only one besides George that wants one.

I don’t care about any of the projects mentioned the most important part of this information is the word “Tarantino” coupled with “retires”.

The only thing that could make this news more joyous would be if he were 59.

Malik

Don’t watch his movies if you don’t like him?

I hope he makes a companion piece to Inglorious Basterds. I read a draft of Inglorious Basterds which I have if anyone is interested and it a few scenes where not in the final cut which made me sad, because it would of made the film more memorable and better.

I have ranted about this before, so I will copy and paste it from the topic Q.T @ MoMa:

I would kill to read his mini series like script. I wonder what happened to Micahel Madsen’s character of Babe Bunchinski ( Charles Bronson’s real last name homage) and the whole saga with his black soldiers in WWII. I had the opportunity to read his script to Inglorious Basterds the one that leaked online and I read it in 2 hours it was that good. I LOVED in Inglorious Basterds however I wish Quentin would of kept ALL of the things he SHOT in the FINAL CUT! Here are some moments I remember reading in the script that were not present in that movie which made me bummed out for a bit..BUT THAT CAN CHANGE Quentin if you released it on a special edition DVD with a commentary track(with Eli Roth and Enzo G. Castereli =D

Hell it would be cool to see Fred Williamson on the DVD somewhere just for the hell of it, Hes the HAMMER!

- The scene where we meet the Bear Jew, Donnie there was a whole section the script devoted to a full back story on Donnie, the Bear Jew. It would of shown him in his neighborhood of Boston,Mass getting a haircut from his father and then it goes into how the Jews in his hood are grieving and mourning the loss of some lost ones in Europe due to the monster known as Hitler. Donnie get the idea to get a baseball bat, he is a HUGE Red Sox Fan and I believe that is established more in this flashback sequence. He takes the baseball bat and gets in signed by various Jewish folk who have lost someone in his neighborhood, he rings the door of one feisty old Jewish lady and he has an enlightening conversion with her and then boom it cuts the scene of the Eli Roth the Bear Jew emerging from the cave to go to work on the German officer.

There IS A WHOLE SEQUENCE that was written to be shot in ’French New Wave Black and White"
I believe this sequence is the introduction of Shosana to Madame Mimeux, who was cast and played by an Asian actress I wanna say Michelle Yeoh. I believe this was cut out after it was shown in Cannes.

There La Lousie Tavern sequence was much LONGER and some GREAT dialogue and character rants that was servely trimmed for the sake of pacing, according to Q.T. =(

I remember the third basterd sitting at the table during the shootout, i believe his name was Wikci had dialogue and that whole scene within in the La Lousie tavern sequence was longer and better

I remember there was more dialogue at the table where Shosana is taken to meet Gobbels at the returant.
Also there was to be a scene during the initial test screening at Shosana’s theater, having Gobbells comment on the movie being screened and or the theater, i dont really remember the exact dialogue I just remember when I saw the movie I was like the in the script IT WAS LONGER!

The Omar Doom character was not in the script I read.

There was more scenes with Shosana and the projectionist

I hope some of this was shot and what was shot I hope is released in an extended cut of Inglorious Basterds and while I am talking about Inglorious Basterds, I hope it wins the Oscars this year! Not the winning an Oscar really means what it used to..Precious will probably sweep the awards along with Up In The Air, thats the typical crap the Oscar crowds goes for…If not Q.T than Kat Bigelow and if neither of them wins I will be thro with watching the fucking show. Last year show WAS AN EPIC FLOP and downright horrible to watch..all the actors comming out to give an award? What happend to the sharp edgy jokes poking fun at one another and drunken acceptance speeches?

Apparently their was a silent part of the film Tarantino shot but left on the editing floor according to a response I got from this post, the silent part of Inglorious Basterds revolved around Shoshana’s running and escape from Col. Hands Landa in the forest

Odd list, L’il Quentin was on Charlie Rose for a puff piece interview and he was pontificating about how much he hates biopics and there are several in that list.

And if a giant like L’il “N” Bomb himself says they aren’t worth watching then how can it be qestioned.

He also said that wants to make a western movie. I really hope he makes as many movies as possible before he retires.
