Tarantino targets new genre
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
Sergio Leone, prepare for your tribute...
Quentin Tarantino, master of the genre tribute, is eyeing a new format: the spaghetti western. Perhaps influenced by his role in Sukiyaki Western Django in 2007, Empire reports that Tarantino's next film will be a "pure spaghetti western".
Actor Franco Nero, star of the original 1966 Django, revealed in an interview with the Italian site MoviePlayer.it that he may be in a movie tribute to Sergio Leone called The Angel, The Bad and The Wise and that it "contains humor, action and a great plot." (Ain't It Cool said later that the title was completely off.)
He went on to say that Quentin Tarantino, Treat Williams and Keith Carradine were all involved with the potential project, and that the movie would be filmed outside of Italy due in part to Italian film restrictions. Ain't It Cool News said that the filming would take place in Italy or Spain, later this year, and added the news that Christoph Waltz will be in a starring role. Waltz, who most recently worked with Tarantino on Inglorious Basterds, ended up winning 27 awards for his portrayal of the Nazi, including Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and an Oscar, all for best supporting actor. What could this team accomplish in a new setting?
