Quentin Tarantino Talks Up his Inevitably Chatty Slavery Western Movie

16 Comments

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.

    Tarantino can do whatever the hell he wants and i will always be onboard. Personally im annoyed with how you said “Inevitably chatty” as if its a bad thing or something different from Tarantino norm. Im going to say it again, TARANTINO does dialogue people…thats what he prides himself on, and if you actually look at his films, all of them are carried by like 70-80% dialogue. He was never an action guy first, he just benefits from being able to do it superbly,which leads to peoples misconception of Tarantino as an “action and violence” type of director. Basterds was a masterpiece and was the perfect example of who Tarantino is as a film maker. Yet i hear people complain it was too chatty and didn’t have enough action for a war film…Those people obviously don’t know QT as well as they claim to. QT makes films for people who are fans of film…If you know your shit and have your movie game on par, then you know how great the man truely is as a director.

      So which part of my headline is incorrect? You’re basically having a cow over a true statement. Sounds to me like I’m not the one trying to defend my tastes in movies. The man doth protest too much, methinks.

        He’s still mad about the list of dissapointing and Grindhouse being on it. LoL. I understand where he’s coming from though but I know QT’s dialogue isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

    I like Tarantino and understand his films are dialogue driven. You dislike him because you feel they are too “chatty”, otherwise “Inevitably Chatty” wouldn’t have been used to describe a Tarantino film as if it were a hinderance to how great his films are. Seems to me we are BOTH defending our taste’s in the statements we chose to make.

    If you don’t like Tarantino then fine, its your opinion and i respect that. My problem lies with the SO-CALLED Tarantino fans that complain when they feel a movie of his is to “chatty”, if you were a true fan of the man then you would understand thats who he is and wouldn’t be complaining, thats all.

      Dude, it’s just a throwaway attempt at humor in the headlines. Relax. His career, for good or ill, means absolutely nothing to me.

    And didn’t Mario Van Peebles already do a movie along these lines called “The Posse”? It was cheesey but still pretty good. Give it the QT treatment and this could be a seriously badass flick. Sam L is a definite but let’s bring back Ving Rhames too.

      I saw Posse in the theaters. They had Stephen Baldwin as the Token White guy. Hilarious.

        You TOO?!? Yeah that was great. Don’t forget Big Daddy Kane as “Father Time.” “Tick Tock Tick Tock!!!”
