Quentin Tarantino's Next is a Western About Slavery

Posted: March 1st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Quentin TarantinoSubmit Comment
Just yesterday we heard a rumor that Quentin Tarantino may be working on his next feature film, a Western that may re-team the director with his Oscar-winning star of "Inglourious Basterds" Christoph Waltz.

Deadline has now confirmed the rumor, adding that Tarantino has already completed the script. Unlike "Basterds" and "Kill Bill," which took a long time to come together, this one just flowed out of him. The plan is to deliver something to The Weinstein Company within two months and then immediately begin working toward a production start.

Looking back at old Tarantino quotes, there's a good chance that his new film will revolve around slavery. "I'd like to do a Western. But rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times," he said a year ago. "Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti Western that takes place during that time. And I would call it A Southern."

The year before that, Tarantino told Charlie Rose that he wants to make a biopic about revolutionary abolitionist John Brown. "He's my favorite American who ever lived," he said. "He basically single-handedly started the road to end slavery and the fact that he killed people to do it. He decided, 'If we start spilling white blood, then they're going to start getting the idea.'"

I'm glad to know that Tarantino's understanding of American history is about as short as his ability to make a film as good as Pulp Fiction. At least then you can say he fails on demand.

Yes! I was fearing that he would be taking his time before making another film. I'm pretty sure he'll make yet another awesome film.

I hope this is next in line for him. Two things we all know, QT loves Spaghetti Westerns and he loves black people (or at least Sam Jackson). The Texas angle could work well for this typy of film. Texas slaves were some of the last to hear about their emmancipation. This might be a great time to set the film, you wouldn't have to go far for conflict. I just hope its better than Posse.

I think Tarantino's lack of historical information was fully revealed with Inglorious Basterds, but I guess in regards to the man proving his complete incompetence when it comes to something he's an overachiever.

So in Basterds and Kill Bill he devoted time, energy, and effort but this new movie project he just half-assed did. As it's pretty obvious to him that he could put anything up on the silver screen and a healthy portion of critics would think that it was utterly brilliant.

"It's sh*t, but it takes place in the Tarantinoverse, therefore it is brilliant film making."

Nope it's sh*t.

My suggestion to Quentin is to take it easy on the nose candy, take two script doctors, and develop a new fetish that doesn't have anything to do with Uma Thurman's very fugly feet.

@johnzee: so you're looking for historical facts, right? Why don't you read some books if that's what you really want? QT obviously doesn't work for the History channel man.
JohnZee writes:
on March 2nd, 2011 at 2:06:06 AM

Nope not looking for historical facts Coldplayesence, just pointing out that Tarantino has an absolute disregard and ignorance towards historical facts.

But it is nice to notice that you picked out my comment about his historical ignorance and decided to go on a big mighty rant against me yet these similar words come from another comment maker on here:

"I'm glad to know that Tarantino's understanding of American history is about as short as his ability to make a film as good as Pulp Fiction." <--- Minkowski

Yeah I agree with Mink for the first time in a loong time on here, but yet you are only hostile towards MY opinion.

So I guess you've got a mighty hard-on of hate against some comment makers, but not against others. Even when they are saying very similar things.

Well I can certainly see you wanting to selectively pick your battles and arguments. So I won't begrudge you hesitating to get into a debate/argument against me and Mink. So you not noticing Mink's comment that was the FIRST comment on this thread is easily and completely understandable.

@Johnzee: Well played, but here's the thing, I have yet see a comment by minkowski where he actually likes something so what's the point if I go and make him waste his and my time?
In the other hand, I don't know your history and I thought that one of us should tell you the truth: Quentin Tarantino doesn't make doc*mentaries. You're pointing out that he doesn't use accurate historical facts, well thats for a reason and if you or anyboydy else you want to get in to your arguments are looking for some history 101, get a book and get them because QT is not giving any. And to make it clear, world war II was not exactly like Curtiz, Spielberg and Bay described it in their films; why? Because they were movies! just that, they had scripts and they took their liberties with history and even if you don't want, QT has the right to do it too.

You're not being honest with yourself. You don't engage me, not because I 'hate everything', which is demonstrably untrue, but because you're apathetic and because I present more of challenge than you're willing to engage on the comments section of a movie site, and that's a shame because it gets really boring here. Esepcially for me.
coldplayesence writes:

@minkowski: I'm missing a "to" but what I meant if you didn't get it was "I have yet to see...", so I didn't say you hate everything, you're transgressing my words, so how can I start a pointless internet argument if you're not gonna be fare? That's the kind of things that set me apart from those long and repetitive post where people just insult each others, missing the whole point of the news above. So I could've go and tease you but what would be the point in that since in the first comment I'm seeing you do not care? I know that "ranting", like he said, now and then is kind of fun but is it really necessary? I don't think so because your opinion is that Quentin is wrong, YOUR opinion and I can't do anything else there. In the other hand, he took Inglourious Basterds and Kill Bill as history lessons and I just felt like telling him that QT didn't meant to make doc*mentaries. I thought that the real "challenge" was there, maybe I was wrong and should've started a nonsensical and uncalled for rant against you. But I think I did the right thing.

@JohnZee - you can't be ignorant of something and disregard it.. If you're disregarding something you inherently need to know what it is - otherwise you're not disregarding it - you're just ignorant of it.

I think the fact that it concluded by burning down a cinema, not to mention the over the top killing of Hitler should have spelled it out pretty clearly that he disregarded history for Inglourious Basterds. He was pointing a big flaming sign at it and saying "Look here! This is a film and I'm burning down history with it!"

I don't know enough about John Brown (or Tarintino's take on him) to comment on what's historically accurate there.

@Scott: Not sure of your interpretation of a terrorist. No, let me re-phrase. Not sure of your interpretation of good and evil, but IMHO those pesky little black-hating, black buying degenerates of the slave era weren't much better.

Guess we should just have kept them people on chains huh, because obviously a man who keeps a person against his will on a leash, calls him his pet, makes him do his bidding, makes that man suffer (God that feels like such an understatement), is no different than a guy who goes and blows up some people. They both killed people fyi.

If a person is a terrorist because he blows some people up then why the f*ck can't a person who makes people walk to death, starve to death, work to death be a terrorist. Jesus.
minkowski writes:

I think most people's understanding of slavery comes from TV and films where it is made more into propaganda than history, because every time someone mentions slavery, it's almost always painted in tones of Roots, and that sh*t is just histrionic.

But regardless of the evil of slavery, what John Brown did was wrong. Period. He could have achieved his goals without murder, but he chose the most violent solution possible, and for that, he paid the price.

"walk to death, starve to death, work to death be a terrorist"

That happened rather rarely, really, as slaves weren't chaap; they were relatively expensive property.
