Quentin Tarantino: Kill Bill 3 could be the next movie and wants to do comedy
Quentin Tarantino says he has “no idea” what his next film will be. Could it be “Kill Bill 3”?
“Why not?” The director said when he insisted on this burning issue on Tuesday at the Rome Film Festival, where he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Italian horror maestro Dario Argento.
But Tarantino has other plans on the horizon as well. They understand a movie review book and maybe a TV series, as Tarantino told talk show host Fabio Fazio of Italian state television channel RAI on Sunday before adding: “But first, I want to do a comedy. “
Comedy seems to be on Tarantino’s mind. During an on-stage conversation with Rome festival leader Antonio Monda, he described an unspecified project that sounded very funny.
“It’s not like my next movie. It’s a piece of something else that I think I’m doing – and I’m not going to describe what it is, ”Tarantino said. “But part of this thing, there’s supposed to be a spaghetti western in it.
“I can’t wait to shoot this [thing] because it’s gonna be really fun. Because I want to shoot it in the Spaghetti Western style where everyone speaks a different language, ”he continued before bursting into laughter.
“The Mexican Bandido is an Italian; the hero is American; the bad sheriff is a German; the Mexican saloon girl is Israeli. And everyone speaks a different language. And you [the actors] just know: OK, when he’s done talking, I can talk, ”Tarantino laughed again.
During a broad talk about his 32-year career so far, in which he has shot nine films, Tarantino said the first film he remembers seeing was British spy film “Deadlier Than the Male”, directed by Ralph Thomas, starring Richard Johnson as James Bond.
“It’s as far back as my memory of a movie goes; I was literally about 5 years old, ”he said. “I remember that scene with Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina. They kidnap this guy, and they kind of keep him prisoner. I remember watching it when I was 5 and being a little blown away by the sexual politics of it. I didn’t understand that at 5 years old.
Years passed and Tarantino kept remembering this movie, but had no idea of the title. Then, in the late 1990s, when he started his personal film collection, he bought “Deadlier Than the Male”, not knowing that was it.
“And so I test it after I buy it. And then all of a sudden, halfway through, this scene happens and I’m like, “Oh my God! This is the fucking movie! This is the first fucking movie I ever saw! “, did he declare.
Asked by Monda about when and how he decided to become a director, Tarantino said it took him eight years. break through and revealed that he had fully realized his vocation by taking acting classes.
“I realized that not only did I like the movies more than the other kids in the class,” he said. “But I cared about them, when I think they only cared about themselves. And the reason is, I loved movies too much to be an actor. ”
“I didn’t just want to appear there: I wanted the movie to be my movie,” he said.
Towards the end of the talk, Tarantino paid tribute to the late great composer Ennio Morricone and recounted how his Oscar-winning soundtrack “The Hateful Eight” was born.
After worshiping Morricone for years and using tracks he composed for other films, when Tarantino wrote “Hateful Eight,” he thought, “This one should have an original score,” he said and held out his hand to the maestro.
But when they met in Rome, there had been some confusion. “Hateful Eight” had already been shot, though Morricone believed the cameras hadn’t shot on it yet. And he was booked for other work.
Tarantino said he was disappointed but would find another way. But then he asked Morricone about the “little theme in his head” that Morricone had previously mentioned. And Morricone went to work and the next day told him that he could give him three different arrangements of the theme he had been thinking of, as well as a lot of unused tracks from the soundtrack he had written for the 1982 John Carpenter film. “The Thing”.
“I think I can give you 20-25 minutes of original music that you can maybe expand to 40 minutes, depending on the arrangement,” Tarantino recalls, telling him Morricone.
“Then you can use unused tracks for ‘The Thing’ and you get a full original score,” he said. “He was a real giant.”
