Tarantino wants to do a slavery spaghetti western

Once the Oscar buzz around INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS dies down, Quentin Tarantino will have the task of trying to figure out what genre he wants to reinvent next. He's talked about doing a gangster movie in the “Pretty Boy Floyd” era, and he’s also mentioned, wanting to do a western, though I will maintain that KILL BILL was perhaps the greatest western of the last twenty years or so. It just happened to take place in the east for the most part.

But a western would seem to be what Tarantino is leaning toward, and he spilled his thought process behind how he’d want to do it to the NY Daily News.

"I'd like to do a Western. But rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let's shine that light on ourselves. You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. Or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti Western that takes place during that time. And I would call it 'A Southern.'"

A western that involves slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad? I wonder what badass motherf*cker Tarantino will turn to for the lead role? Whatever, I’m all for it, it sounds just wacky enough for Tarantino to make it worthwhile, and I think we should hold off on KILL BILL 3 for a while now anyway.

Extra Tidbit: I'd actually really like to see him go sci-fi.
