The fabulous Quentin Tarantino has been a cult-classic favorite filmmaker for decades. He's only recently crossed over to "mainstream" appreciation however, with his Academy Award winning picture "Django Unchained" last year. He has remained true to his vision and his undeniable brilliance and quirkiness throughout and now we have a bit of insight into what his next project might be.
While appearing on the Jay Leno show, when asked about his next project he said, "I haven't told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre. It's a western. It's not a Django (Unchained) sequel, but it's another Western, and the thing is, I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like 'OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I'm doing.'"
When asked about the filmmaking process, Tarantino stated the following:
"In the last five years, it's sort of developed into something else. Before, what I would do is, normally if I had to write during the day, I'd go to a restaurant or go to a bar and write in public, get the juices flowing that way, but then at home, I'd write all night long. That kind of changed around the time of Inglourious Basterds. I just started writing at home, like let's say 10 in the morning, and I'd write until 5 or 6 or 7, whenever the muses leave you. That would be the work that I did for that day, then afterwards, I would go into my pool. I keep my pool warm, I heat my pool a lot. I do swim in my pool, but in this case, I soak, and what I'm doing is, if I just finished a scene, then I'm thinking about how I can make it better, or what happens next. I just sit there and think about it and all these ideas come to me and I kind of work it out a little bit. Then I get out of the pool and make notes, but I don't do them. I go out or I watch TV, but that's my work for the next day."
Known for his amazing and eccentric characters, witty dialogue and beautiful shots, surely no one questions this filmmaker's vision anymore.
