Helen Mirren to play a cursing queen in Tarantino's next?

01.25.2010

Quentin Tarantino wants Helen Mirren for his next film? I'd be inclined to believe this if it didn't come from The Sun.

Digital Spy reports via The Sun that Mirren has been approached to play a foul-mouthed Medieval queen. Here's what the close source of The Sun said about this mystery film, "It will feature his trademarks - bloody violence and foul language. Helen has never worked with Tarantino and is interested. If the film goes into production it's likely she will play a part." I'll believe it when I see it.

Plus, isn't Tarantino already swamped with projects? Not that I doubt he'd add more. He says he's not too far from doing KILL BILL 3. Then there's the INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS prequel, a FASTER, PUSSYCAT KILL KILL remake still floating around, a Western, and whatever else is stewing around in that crazy brain of his. It's not that this news is impossible, it's just where it's coming from. I'd love to see Mirren as a monarch from the Tarantino perspective, but my heart won't be broken if it never happens.

So, if your buddy comes up to you and says, "I hear Helen Mirren is playing a Queen in the new Tarantino movie." It's a safe bet to just say no.

Extra Tidbit: Fact: Helen Mirren still looks smokin' in a bathing suit.

Great, so you just reported something that you have said yourselves is completley false and without merit.

Thanks?

whatever

i've learned to ignore anything like this, there will always be a bazillion stories about what's next for him, you can forget about a prequal to basterds, no to kb3.. his next flick was supposed to be his british spy movie.. I doubt we'll see more than 2 movies from him in this decade.. but i do hope this is true lol

Tarantino medieval?!!!

I hope for once in their lousy life the Sun is actually right. Tarantino handling battle axes and leaky fortresses and stuff, now that I want to see. Who cares about Faster Pussycats? Why revisit the Basterds?

Cougar!

I couldn't believe how hot she's still looking at her age. Showed it to the missus as an example to follow...

...I'm not the biggest Tarantino fan but he's the equivalent of a rock star filmmaker. He makes good entertainment, and he's a good filmmaker but I just don't think he's a great filmmaker.

I would have to agree even though I have loved a lot of his work. There are too many people out there who idolize him, giving me the impression that he doesn't need to work too hard on story development to get folks on board. Everyone needs a good constructive critic and I think it's time to expect more from Mr. Tarantino...

Heck, you liked more than my friend and I. We walked out during the basement shootout... I rented it and never ended up finishing it... You think you're done with QT? He could come out with Pulp Fiction 2 and I doubt I'd bother with it...

nobody owes you a response. Be happy with the multiple thumbs down. We disagree with you, the critics disagree with you, the box office disagrees with you... i would actually argue that it either wasn't your cup of tea or you just didnt get it.

raines, i agree with you. talks about strudel and whatever else that had nothing to do with the plot was too much. adn the ending was undeniable STUPID. and Death Proof was a major snore fest. Fanboys are just hanging on to the fact that RD, PF, True Romance and The KB's were great. But that doesnt justify the crappy movies. Some people have a hard on for QT and will give his movies 4 stars, even if it is two hours of some guys sitting on a toilet talking about random nothings. and like you

They dont know why they liked it. they just did because it has QT's name on it. despite the fact that it was overly long and had an Itchy and Scratchy ending (look up Hitler, Itchy and Scratchy on youtube) IB wasnt that good, face it.

I like QT as much as the next guy, but sometimes he's all talk. Like that Kill Bill whole bloody affair, still waiting on that QT.

Quentin is an amazing writer/director and I'll always be excited about his next project no matter what it is.

I'd say "Inglorious Basterds" started to go downhill right after the opening scene. The basterds themselves felt like a tacked on excuse for violence, when the more interesting story would have been Shosanna and her hate/fear of Hans Landa. Instead her story ended up feeling flat and underdeveloped.
And a note to Tarantino: You don't need to try to build suspense through long, tense, conversations in every-single-scene.
