Quentin Tarantino’s last directorial effort was Inglourious Basterds in 2009 which made $313 million worldwide and was rather awesome. It drew attention to the talent that is Michael Fassbender and introduced the world to Christoph Waltz.
Up until this point we’ve heard no solid news as to what Tarantino’s next movie will be. He’s planning to make Kill Bill: Vol. 3 at some point, but before then the director may be making…a spaghetti western.
“The film will be called ‘The Angel, The Bad And The Wise’ and is a tribute to Sergio Leone. It’s a movie that contains humor, lots of action, but also a great plot,” Nero said (via Movieplayer). “We have already been signed by a dozen people who will be part of project. Among the filmmakers involved include Quentin Tarantino , Keith Carradine, Treat Williams, fifteen people in all Americans who want to do this movie and so we are trying to produce it outside of Italy.”
To see whether any of this was true (or just a dodgy translation) AICN got in touch with one of their sources:
I still don’t have all the pieces of the story (my Tarantino sources have been much more tight-lipped regarding this project than they were on INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), but here are three things I can confirm: 1) Quentin Tarantino’s next film is a spaghetti western, 2) Christoph Waltz is “one of the stars”, and 3) that title is completely wrong (even if it got completely mangled by Google Translate, it’s still not even close). I cannot confirm plot details at present (though I think I’ve got the premise).
Apparently the plan is to shoot the film in Italy and Spain later this year, in which case we should be hearing some news on this project pretty soon. A Tarantino/Waltz spaghetti western reunion would definitely be something worth seeing.
