Tarantino May Bring Elmore Leonard's ‘Forty Lashes’ to TV

Tarantino May Bring Elmore Leonard's ‘Forty Lashes’ to TV

The story centers on Harold Jackson and Raymond San Carlos, a black man and an Apache half-breed who are facing life sentences at Yuma Prison. They are given a shot at redemption as they are tasked with teaming up to track down and hunt Arizona's five most wanted criminals. The director first hinted at turning this story into a feature adaptation back in 2000, and in 2007 he revealed in an interview that he had written about 20 pages of a feature screenplay adaptation, but we haven't heard anything else about the project until now.

If Forty Lashes Less One does head to the small screen, it will mark one of the director's few forays into television. He previously directed an episode of ER, wrote and directed a two-part episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and he serves as an executive producer on #15SecondScare. While he's not involved in El Rey's From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, he does get credit for co-writing the screenplay for the original film which the show is based on.

Tarantino on Police Boycott: What I Said Was the Truth

Tarantino on Police Boycott: What I Said Was the Truth

After a 10 day silence, Quentin Tarantino has finally responded to the police boycott against him and his movies, including his upcoming Christmas Day release The Hateful Eight. His recent comments at a rally protesting police brutality drew the ire of the NYPD, who initially called the boycott. It was soon joined by various other law enforcement agencies all across the country. The director and cult icon certainly angered cops on both coasts. But he doesn't care. And he refuses to apologize or retract his comments.

So far, law enforcement groups in New York, Los Angeles, Orange County, New Jersey, Chicago and Philadelphia have joined the boycott against Tarantino. Supporters are asked to both ban his films and to refuse to provide security or technical advice for his future projects. Los Angeles Police Dept. Lt. Craig Lally, who is also president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, blames Quentin Tarantino for being insensitive. The filmmaker called specific police officers 'murderers' just four days after a New York police officer was killed in the line of duty in East Harlem. The Dept. Lt. believes that Tarantino's comments are what will be most damaging to The Hateful Eight when it arrives in theaters. The officer explains."There's an underground of people who are very pro-police, and you don't hear about them until they get pissed off. And it's going to be this underground that shuts down the movie, not the cops."
