Quentin Tarantino

Who else but Quentin Tarantino could make both a two-and-a-half hour World War II adventure with minimal action and voluminous dialogue and an ultraviolent epic barn burner of a western in the past four years and reap amazing reviews and blockbuster grosses? The man’s one of the most reliable filmmakers in the world and his detractors are vastly outnumbered by his admirers. It looks like he who is referred to as Q.T. by his friends and soulless sycophants has another movie in the works. Lo and behold – Tarantino might be heading back out West.

Rumors are tearing their way through the industry like an undercooked Royale with Cheese through your digestive system that Tarantino has written the script for his latest feature and is in the process of sending it out to actors he hopes to cast. He announced that he was working on another western during a November appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The title of the screenplay is said to be The Hateful Eight; though that could be a temporary title, with Tarantino it is unlikely to change once it’s typed out and printed on the cover.

Christoph Waltz made a name for himself on the international film scene with back-to-back Oscar-winning roles in the director’s last two films – Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained – so it comes as little surprise that Tarantino has written a part for him in his new script. Even more interesting is the rumor that legendary actor Bruce Dern, an Oscar front-runner for his performance in Alexander Payne’s Nebraska who made a brief appearance in Django, is also said to be on the director’s wishlist.

Waltz is a fine actor, but only Tarantino seems to be able to write the guy a halfway decent part. The two are a great team. Bruce Dern, meanwhile, is one of our finest living actors with a brilliant career in film and television stretching back more than five decades. In the early days of his career, he guest-starred on practically every western series on TV and even got to kill John Wayne on screen in 1970’s The Cowboys. His face alone could tell a million fascinating stories.

The enthusiastic praise he has received thus far for Nebraska has the 77-year-old actor primed for a career comeback. Tarantino is well-known for helping to revive the careers of actors he worships. The collaboration could prove to be quite lucrative for them both if the rumors turn out to be true. Watch this space.
