When Tim Miller exited Deadpool 2 over creative differences (with Ryan Reynolds, of all people!) we were pretty shocked. The first Deadpool was great, an R-rated, funny, and blood-soaked respite from the formula we’ve come to expect from Marvel, and the prospect of a sequel was equally as exciting. But with Miller’s exit, Deadpool’s future has become a little more uncertain — so uncertain, that fans have set up their own petition to get Quentin Tarantino for the sequel instead.

Quentin Tarantino Is Working on a Mysterious Project About 1970s Cinema

by Erin Whitney October 14, 2016 @ 11:38 AM
In many ways, Quentin Tarantino is a film lover first, a filmmaker second. It’s his deep knowledge of cinema that’s made his films do distinct. Whether you’re a fan of Tarantino’s appropriation or not, you can’t deny how much his profound love of the medium defines his work. But instead of just plucking his favorite bits and pieces to make another genre film, Tarantino’s next project will literally be inspired by film history.

Anyone who made it through the entirety of Luke Cage knows that the Marvel Netflix series paid homage to the character’s 1970s roots where possible, but primarily focused on more topical implications of a bulletproof black superhero. At least some think the character was most effective in the original blaxploitation context, as Quentin Tarantino claims of his prior idea for a Luke Cage movie.

Last we heard, Kevin Smith’s TV take on The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension was still shaping up for an Amazon order, but the Mallrats director is already thinking big. Not only does Smith have hopes for Quentin Tarantino to direct an episode, so too do we know what unused portions of the 1984 film will end up explored.

Hey, kids! Did your parents allow you to go see Quentin Tarantino’s blood-soaked nihilist Western The Hateful Eight in an act of gross negligence?

Quentin Tarantino Reportedly ‘Serious’ About Bringing ‘The Hateful Eight’ to Broadway

So far, audiences haven’t flocked to Quentin Taratino’s latest film, The Hateful Eight, as they have with his last two films. Both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained grossed over $120 million, but The Hateful Eight looks like it will be lucky to get to $50 million. This despite the 70mm roadshow version that encouraged audiences to see the film in theaters. A large part of the disappointing box-office take so far, is due in no small part to opening up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens, aka the Biggest Movie of All-Time, but Tarantino is not backing off his latest movie, instead doubling down and moving forward with plans to mount a stage production of his latest movie in London and New York.

Quentin Tarantino Wants to Make a 1930s Gangster Movie or a ‘Really, Really Scary Horror Film’

Quentin Tarantino has promised (threatened?) on more than one occasion to end his directing career after 10 films, and with The Hateful Eight appropriately serving as his eighth, that means we may only have two more Tarantino movies in our future. The director has had a few projects kicking around in his head — notably a third Kill Bill installment and the Inglorious Basterds-adjacent Killer Crow — and while nothing has been officially set as his follow-up to The Hateful Eight, he does have a couple of possibilities. Or not — you never know with this guy, you know?
