It’s hard to know how much stock to put in the things Quentin Tarantino says, because the dude really really likes to talk. But for what it’s worth, this is what he told the NY Daily News about his next project:
“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.’”
I think I speak for everyone when I say that I would kill to see Samuel L. Jackson as a foul-mouthed, Aldo-Raine-style leader of a slave resistance. “I’m a musket-cloud-layin’ muthaf*cka, muthaf*cka. Every time my hands touch cotton, I’m supafly TNT, I’m the guns of Fort McHenry! Now, what you muthaf*ckas need to ask yourselves is, did I join the underground muthaf*ckin railroad, or dead n*gger storage?”
Yeah… that’d be pretty cool. Pret-teh, pret-teh… cool. *leans back in chair*
