mod edit: Tarantino seems to pop up a lot on our geek cultural landscape so here's a place to talk about it.

WTF?!?!

Tarantino's Next Project Will Be.....

Liz Smith reports that exploitation cinema's biggest champion Quentin Tarentino is keen on remaking Russ Meyer's cult campy soft-porn 1965 classic "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!".

The original followed three thrill-seeking strippers who come upon a couple in the desert. Killing the boyfriend, they take the girl hostage and hide out on a secluded ranch owned by a wheelchair-bound redneck farmer and his two dim-witted sons. Trying to locate the man's hidden fortune, they seduce the sons to learn of the secret - soon all hell breaks loose.

Tarantino wants his version to be even raunchier, and his first choices are Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and none other than Britney Spears for the roles.

Well, he has officially achieved his goal of 'Raunchier'.

But not the kind of funny you feel good about 10 minutes after laughing so hard you blow a blood vessel in your eye, giving you severe 'cookie-monster-eye'.

That movie is this kind of funny:

/see what I mean? If you are laughing now (I am), come back and take a look in 10 minutes; you will want to cry.

Isn't this like his 20th movie that is supposed to be allegedly his "next" film? All the power to him if he wants to go through with it but honestly... someone needs to just strap him to a director's chair and get him directing his next film already.

Personally, I think we all need to get over the fact that Pulp Fiction II is never going to happen, and that Quentin's going to make the movies HE wants to make no matter what the fuck we all think about it. Cries of 'Quentin's next project is...' happen far too often. I don't take any of them seriously until my ass is sitting in a seat waiting for the previews to hurry up and end so I can watch what he's actually done.

I'm still laughing...but I feel really really bad about it. Someone posted a similar pic around these parts a couple months back, I started cracking up, my roommate asked me what I was laughing about and I showed her....

.....she still doesn't think it's funny.

But I digress. I mean, laughing at Britney Spears has become a national pastime. It's a little different than the little guy up there.

I think this could be cool...maybe Tarantino needs to get all this shit out of his system before he can do Inglorious Bastards.

C'mon - Grindhouse was his first box office flop. Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and both Kill Bill movies made plenty of money on very low budgets. Death Proof is doing just fine on DVD, as well. It's funny how often people forget the guy's only made 5 movies.

I predicted in 1997 that the last image of Britney Spears that the public ever sees is her, smiling through tears, as a single, solitary cum-drop slowly crawls from the corner of her mouth.

Every day brings that image closer to fruition.

Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill 1 & 2, Death Proof. Not to mention "slumming" for shows like ER and Alias (which was fucking AWESOME, by the way).

Personally, I wish he'd just do a fucking porno. It would be an interesting trip into the brain of the man. But if he wants to go this way with it...

You can't bash the guy for making his pet projects happen. Think about it, if you were able to make a somewhat studio film, and gain INSANE amounts of praise for it, writing your own ticket through Hollywood... what personal, close to your heart dream project would YOU make? I'm willing to bet at least a few people in here would come up with something obscure like this.

I get what you're saying about him not having to satisfy anybody's creative urges but his own, but I do wish he'd take on something that didn't seem like a Tarantino film. I'm curious to see what he'd come up with working outside his comfort zone.

That's a pretty big 'if' there. Is what you're actually saying that you want him to fail? If it is, just come on out and say it. Like Fawst said up there, the guy's made some of the most iconic and resonant movies of his generation, yet he gets more shit than anyone when it comes to what his next project is going to be. I think people want him to fail more than what he ever actually will.

This may be just me, but I think he's improved as a filmmaker with every movie he's made. I can re-watch Jackie Brown a hell of a lot more than I can re-watch Pulp Fiction. Kill Bill is one of my favorite action movies ever. Death Proof is fluff, yes, but it's well-made fluff. I think it only really failed at the box office because of the package it came in. Hell, most people didn't even know to stick around for it after Planet Terror.

He's self-indulgent, to be sure, but for the most part he's still interesting to watch. I didn't like DEATH PROOF as much as others (the car chase was great, Stuntman Mike was great, the dialogue felt forced as hell though) and I can see that QT has a tendency to fall in love with his own words. Kevin Smith has the same problem.

QT should probably adapt another work, to put his writing and directing back in synch.

Yes, it's strange how his "ouevre" seems to be devolving almost, in aspiration, if not strictly in quality.

And I say that as something of an apologist, I guess.

I'll still chime in and see what's what, as long as the man's got something he feels the need to burn on to celluloid.

I just hope he really, REALLY feels the need to make this, as it feels a little :roll: -worthy, at this stage.

On what the "KON scale of Film Making Failure"? You don't enjoy his recent work fine but that isn't some universal standard of success. That also seems to be contradictory....You want something like Pulp or Dogs but you don't want Q to be self indulgent? So you don't think either of those were self indulgent? If anything the closest to not-self indulging in his career was the adaptation of Jackie Brown.

Are you guys actually believing any of this? It's written by Liz Smith, in about five lines, without a single quote or source, in what is essentially a gossip column. She was probably standing in line at Starbucks and overheard two PAs talking.

PA 1: I was talking to Trent yesterday and he said he ran into Quentin Tarantino at a party--

PA 2: Bullshit.

PA 1: Yeah, probably. But he said he overheard him talking about how cool it would be to make a movie with a drugged out crazy Brittney Spears.

PA 2: Pssh. Like what?

PA 1: I don't know. He's into that old shit, like Faster Pussycat Kill Kill Kill.

PA 2: What the fuck is that?

PA 1: Who knows. I see it mentioned on AICN alot when my boss has me plant talkback reviews.

Liz Smith: DINGDINGDING! I just reached my word quota for this weeks column!

Exactly.
As an artist I loathe that fans seem to love the idea that a Director should always be doing different things otherwise they become "self indulgent" and by proxy their work is somehow less worthwhile. "Oh he/she only made that type of movie because they enjoy it"...."How self indulgent of them. They should branch out and make art they don't like otherwise it's just not 'good'". Not everyone can be a Kubrik and cross genres and enjoy it. I prefer to see art the artist enjoyed creating instead of going through the motions simply to satisfy this idea of being a "renaissance man".

Ginger I don't really think this rumor is remotely likely but I think the points brought up in here are worth discussing regardless if this pans out or not.

Tarantino's Next Project Will Be.....

Liz Smith reports that exploitation cinema's biggest champion Quentin Tarentino is keen on remaking Russ Meyer's cult campy soft-porn 1965 classic "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!".

The original followed three thrill-seeking strippers who come upon a couple in the desert. Killing the boyfriend, they take the girl hostage and hide out on a secluded ranch owned by a wheelchair-bound redneck farmer and his two dim-witted sons. Trying to locate the man's hidden fortune, they seduce the sons to learn of the secret - soon all hell breaks loose.

Tarantino wants his version to be even raunchier, and his first choices are Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and none other than Britney Spears for the roles.


Britney Spears... I loved her as a kid, still enjoy some of her music... but all this bad publicity is kinda earned. Oh well.... I'll keep holding out hopes for her and Lohan to become what they can become.

Calling QT self-indulgent is about as played as saying that Crispin Glover should've been The Joker. EVERY big-time director is self-indulgent, and every aspiring director wishes they had made the choices that the big-timers had made so they could afford to be self-indulgent. Do people call out Spielberg for being self-indulgent because he makes a lot of movies about Jewish people?

Or that Jaws is simply Duel in the water with a shark?

true, and even with Kubrick's genre-hopping, there's not a film he's made that isn't, for lack of a better adjective, "Kubrickian".

he simply applied his aesthetic across a broad range of topics.

indeed. Shit, we've got "Movie News" threads based on other QT related rumors...whilst perusing, I found the "Come Drink with Me" thread.

really just split this off so as not to derail the other thread.

and it's a fun discussion, one that came up previously w/r/t Wes Anderson.
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

I had to wiki Kim Kardashian. I still don't really know who she is...

Is she kinda like a minor Paris Hilton?

I wish they would. It would be hilarious to see it pop up in interviews.

"Mr. Spielberg, you've made some wonderful films about the Holocaust and the Jewish community. But I couldn't help but notice that....well, you yourself are actually Jewish."

"Uh.....yeah. Your point?"

"Oh. I don't have one. Just thought I'd point it out. Moving on...."

Jesus Christ, you guys have no sense of humor. I was making a humorous observation about the shitty source. But I can see how that would be missed in my 8-line short play entitled "Waiting for my Mocha Grande."

I enjoyed it but I didn't think I had to type big giant guffaws. I'll make sure to do that in the future.

But to add my 2-cents to the "worth-while" discussion, I don't think QT is self-indulgent. I do, however, think that people expect too much from him. He's directed 4.5 movies and written a few more. All of which have fit directly into his, omg, style. What more do you want from the guy?

But hey, who knows, maybe he really should shake it up a bit. And while he's doing that, maybe Tim Burton could make a movie that isn't spooky. And James Cameron could finally stop using special effects as a crutch. And George Romero could find the courage to direct my script "UNICORNS VS. TEDDY BEARS: HUG-APOLYPSE"

I wasn't saying you had to laugh. I was saying that it was meant as a joke about the story....not a cry of "this topic has no reason for being."
