Tarantino Clears Up All the Confusion

by | March 14, 2005 | Comments

It seems that there are more rumours floating around Quentin Tarantino‘s career than one would assume, as FilmFocus learned when they spoke to the director this week.

First up, he confirms in the interview that he was never attached to "Friday the 13th." "There’s no truth whatsoever to that rumour," he told FilmFocus, "I like Jason, but there’s just no truth to the rumour at all."

He also talked of his planned "Casino Royale" project, which is no longer going ahead with Bond producers taking the title for their own and Pierce Brosnan out of the Bond race for good now. Does Tarantino think they have what is takes? "Well, I don’t know," he said, "I mean, if they’re going to do the book, I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t hire me, alright, you know, I like it so much! So if they’re not going to hire me it suggests that they’re just going to use the title and do something else. I wish them all the luck in the world, but we’ll see."

As if that weren’t enough for one roundup, Tarantino told the website that "Inglorious Bastards" would definately be his next project and confirmed that "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair" will be getting a US release in the coming months. "’Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair’ is definitely getting a wide release," he told FilmFocus, "actually, that’ll probably be the first movie that Miramax, under their new company, will be releasing theatrically. It’s the Japanese version, that’s why I call it that, you know, it should probably come out in the next few months. It’s going to be NC-17 in America.

Suprisingly, Tarantino lightheartedly announced plans to retire as soon as he hit fifty-five, claiming that he didn’t want to direct or watch "old-man movies."
