Remember when Quentin Tarantino was in talks with New Line Cinema to director the “Ultimate” Friday the 13th? That’s something that’s always bugged me – the “what if?” Tarantino had taken on the Jason Voorhees mythology?
Here we are years later, and Tarantino has directed more than a handful of new films, all of which were laced in gore. He even dabbled in the genre with the 2007 Grindhouse, directing the intense killer stuntman segment “Death Proof”.
Still, every time he announces a new Western, I wish he’d surprise us all and do a straight horror film. The good news is that it’s not of the cards, yet.
“I’ve done what I wanted to do by the time I was this age. Today, I’m further down the road,” Tarantino tells The Independent. “There are no genres I absolutely want to do any more, like ticking boxes: ‘This, done’. I don’t think about Kill Bill 3 that much, as… we already visited them,” he added.
“If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu’s movies, maybe. Or a horror movie, perhaps.”
Just the fact that it crossed his mind in the heat of the moment tells us that Tarantino has been thinking about it enough that it came off the tip of his tongue. That’s crazy exciting.
What sub genre would you like to see him direct?
