There's an old saying that tells you to wish in one hand and shit in another and see which fills up first. If Kevin Smith has any intention on doing so as it pertains to who he hopes to land in the director's chair for episodes of the BUCKAROO BANZAI TV series he's behind, then I get the feeling he'll be holding a lot of poop in the foreseeable future. 

“I wanna get the people who loved it as much as me, so people like Richard Kelly, Edgar Wright, I’m gonna reach out to Quentin Tarantino, see if they’ll direct an episode. ‘Here’s a chunk of change, a 50-page script, eight days… go make your section.’ That’d be fun. It also means I won’t take all the heat myself. ‘Quentin was here, he didn’t f*ck it up!’”

That's what he told ComingSoon.net up in Montreal at this year's Fantasia International Film Festival. Now you tell me how many of those do you realistically see coming abord to handle an episode of the series. if it's more than zero, please elaborate further. 

Also, it speaks to the lackadaisical approach Smith has to even something like this where there really is no true structure to how the series will operate. No discipline. Here's some money. Here's your time frame. Go crazy. That's the direction being given in order to bring this whole thing together. I can't be the only one sniffing disaster at the moment, right?

Kevin is friends with a lot of these guys, and a lot of these guys love old schlocky movies like Buckaroo Bonzai. It's not that unlikely, honestly.

Secondly, holy crap, someone on staff has a real hate-boner for Kevin's Smith. The loathing is dripping off every word. Take a breather, find some journalistic neutrality, have a Manhattan, something.

Tarantino sounds like a long shot, but I could possibly see it happening. Buckaroo Banzai definitely seems like one of those weird old movies that have always informed his film-making, and he's said multiple times he's considered doing some TV work. Maybe this would be like getting his feet wet before moving onto an HBO miniseries or something?

He could probably get Richard Kelly.

That guy ain't doing anything.
Hack-Paul Feig would probably do one. Realistically I'm seeing the regular directors of The Flash or Once Upon A Time doing it, and not much else, he'll just talk them up big.
