While it's still not totally clear how director Quentin Tarantino will follow up his Oscar-nominated Inglourious Basterds, it seems he might be revitalizing the Western genre. The New York Daily News spoke with Tarantino at a recent Oscar luncheon, and he revealed a few details about a new Western project.
"I'd like to do a Western. But rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let's shine that light on ourselves. You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. Or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti Western that takes place during that time. And I would call it 'A Southern.'"
It isn't clear if this is something that Tarantino is currently writing, or it it's just in the idea stages right now. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new details about this Quentin Tarantino Western (or "Southern") as soon as more information comes in.
