Is Quentin Tarantino currently working on a spaghetti western? Plus: The Whole Bloody Affair

02.28.2011

Usually it's a game of "What will Quentin Tarantino take on next?". It looks like now we might have our answer.

The news started from Italian film site, Movieplayer. In an article actor Franco Nero (CAMELOT, CARS 2) reveals that he is working with Tarantino on a "spaghetti western". This is what he had to say (with translation from The Playlist):

“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.”

When this first came about, no one really knew what Tarantino's involvement would be. Then Ain't It Cool News came in with some of their own info:

"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)."

"As for Franco Nero, Keith Carradine and Treat Williams, this is the first I've heard of their involvement, but I'm inclined to believe they're in the mix since I've heard the plan is to shoot the film in Italy and Spain later this year. I've been pressing for confirmation since this morning, but have thus far received no responses to my emails. It's probably too on the nose for Tarantino to cast Waltz as a German quick-draw artist ala Gerard Herter in Sergio Sollima's THE BIG GUNDOWN, right? More updates as they (hopefully) come in..."

BONUS: Dave Davis called to my attention that Mr. Beaks (who knows QT) said this, "Lionsgate recently acquired a good chunk of Miramax's catalogue for DVD/Blu/OnDemand/etc. distribution. I wouldn't be surprised if this unveiling of THE WHOLE BLOODY AFFAIR is priming the pump for a late 2011 home video release."

Thoughts on all this delightful news?

Extra Tidbit: Tarantino played Piringo in SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO. How many people liked it? I really enjoyed it.

This is definitely cool news. I learned a while ago to never have doubts when you first hear what QT's next film will be. I always end up liking it no matter what. . .

They'd have to shoot in Spain although Leone did film OUATITW in Arizona. But Spain is where they should go for the real vibe.

I had read awhile ago that he had a Western idea and I'm so glad to see that's his next project. Excited to hear about Whole Bloody Affair as well.

This is good news. Also, Franco Nero is awesome. I loved him in Camelot, and he was one of the few good things in Die Hard 2.

I would fuckin love a Quentin Tarantino spaghetti western.. Kill Bill 2 was kind of a western and it´s completely awesome. Carradine ftw.

*Shrill Girlish Squeal*

Please let this be true, and please let it come swiftly. AND CHRISTOPH FUCKING WALTZ. YES. Only thing I forgot is the fact that the amazing Sally Menke passed recently (was unfortunately reminded when I saw the Oscars), and I wonder how QT's finished product will look and feel. But still. SQUEAL.

im all for westerns, minus long drawn out scenes like in inglorious basterds, but i don't see the point in a spaghetti western. i mean, doing it just for the hell of it?! as a tribute?! come on man, just film it in the west man. where was There Will Be Blood filmed? or No Country For Old Men? yeah. its better this way folks. make the movie a tribute to the man with no name but this would be ridiculous

Been waiting to hear some news on QT's next project. I'm sure it will kick ass.

On the Whole Bloody Affair, what you have posted is no news at all. Its just someone who thinks it may get released late this year. Unless its from QT's mouth, I'm discarding that piece of news (even though you cant really believe what Tarantino says anyway)

Wasn't Kill Bill vol. 2 a tribute/modern spaghetti western??? I'm with everyone else. The Whole Bloody Affair is about as mythical as bigfoot or the Lock Ness Monster. I'm over it.

"The Whole Bloody Affair"... please.

I'll never believe it until it's in my hand and I can open it and see the disc. Been burned enough on this.

So....another 10 year wait for a movie that's rumored to happen, that winds up being underwhelming, overhyped, and in desperate need of an editor that knows how to edit?

Thank god.

I have been waiting patiently for years for the whole bloody affair set. Its so hard not to buy kill bill 1 and 2 on blu ray. It was like the long ass wait for grindhouse to be released as it was in theaters.

I've been waiting for The Whole Bloody Affair for so long. I have restrained myself from buying either volume of Kill Bill for all these years now, and it's starting to get to me.

EXACTLY what I was going to say. I've heard we could see it on BluRay by next year. Of course I think I also heard that like 20 years ago. . . .

whens this guy going to make a movie that doesnt pay tribute to movies he liked 40 years ago, then get called godlike by a bunch of nerds that are still hanging on to the hope that the movie will be as good as reservoir dogs and pulp fiction, yet just becomes a snorefest with overly long unrealistic, boring dialogue about strudel or unpopular b-side songs on a jukebox.

It's fine that you don't have a long attention span, or one at all, slimbo. We understand.

what´s the problem about him doing tribute films??? the man does great work, that´s all we can ever ask from a movie director, and he always delivers, so, give it a chance before starting to knock it down, the movie´s not even made yet...

OMFGLMFAOWSMFP!!!!! A new Quentin Tarantino movie!!!! YES!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!

I love him, I do, but I hope they at least market this thing CORRECTLY and not try and trick people into seeing it by labeling it as something it isn't.

And before I get flamed, I'm not saying Basterds wasn't a good movie. It was a very good movie. Better and more original than most shit that gets pumped out of hollywood, but it wasn't what I was expecting it to be and that caused me to be slightly disappointed.

I haven't been this excited about a rumor possibly being true since I heard "Tarantino to make a WWII film?"
