Quentin Tarantino Talks Up his Inevitably Chatty Slavery Western Movie

According to Quentin Tarantino, he and his “Inglourious Basterds” star Brad Pitt love their reefer, but they abstain from the plant of life while doing their respective parts on a movie set. Quentin Tarantino talked about his need for the weed, along with his next movie, which he reckons might be a Western, in the latest round of “road to Oscars” type interviews that you’re probably going to be sick of by the time the Oscars finally rolls around. We’re not talking just any Western, of course, but a QT joint, as it were. The Chinned One tells NY Daily News:

“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 goes without saying that if Samuel L. Jackson doesn’t get a part in this sucker, then QT needs to lay off the good stuff.

Samuel L. Jackson in a Tarantino Western about slavery? You bet your motherlovin' ass.
