    I, along with thousands of other Tarantino fans, were delighted to see him take home his second Academy Award this week. The man is honestly a contender for greatest living filmmaker, and he has been duly recognized.

    However, I am getting just a little weary of his slate of historical revenge films (Ingloriuos Basterds and Django Unchained were masterpieces) and he is completing that trilogy with Killer Crow, about a group of black soldiers wreaking havoc across Europe. Sounds like a Jamie Foxx/Samuel L. Jackson re-team up to me perhaps NOW Jackson can win BSA

    What other projects should Tarantino tackle? He has covered so many genres – action, thriller, gangster, martial arts, western, war etc, so its only a matter of time before he pursues another one.

    Here are my ideas:

    Soldier of Trouble
    A screwball comedy (similar to His Girl Friday and The Philadelphia Story) about a high-ranking officer of the army Lieutenant
    George Q. Moran (Steve Buscemi) returning from war on V-Day to his wife Elaine (Uma Thurman) pregnant – and there are various possibilities to who the father is. Other options include her psychologist, Dr. James Pollsmore (Christoph Waltz), the mayor of the town they live in, Alfie Joffers (Harvey Keitel) and the neighbourhood milkman, Anderson (Samuel L. Jackson). Moran sets out to find the father, and develops friendships with all three men in order to find out the paternity of the father – only for it to be revelaed that he himself is the father.

    Imagine how the dialouge would flow between Buscemi and Thurman and Waltz and Keitel and Jackson. If there is anyone I trust to write a loving homage to screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s, its film ultra-nerd Tarantino. He would put a hilarious twist on it though

    Winner for the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, winner of the Golden Globe for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and maybe another Oscar nomination for Waltz?

    Dealers
    A dark crime comedy about a package of drugs being passed around to various people in New York, who each sample the drugs and experience life-changing events.

    • Michael Morrison (Alec Baldwin), an actor on Broadway dealing with a difficult director (Tim Roth), and after sampling the drug, walks onto stage on opening night and setting himself on fire. 
    • A Wall Street trader (Eli Roth) who’s girlfriend breaks up with him after she catches him cheating. He tries to get her back, but she believes he will never be able to stay faithful to her. He then sets on a mission to make sure he always stays faithful – by marrying eight women in Amish country
    • An elderly man (Ian McKellan) who is dying, seeks out his estranged son (Tim Roth), who has recently seen his lead actor commiting suicide on stage.
    • A mafia don (Harvey Keitel) who is informed of his daughter marrying a psychopath in Amish country, and embarks on a journey to get revenge on the man who dared elope with his daughter.

    Ever since I’ve heard about it, I’ve felt that the 1930s Gangster Movie Tarantino has said he’d like to make seems like it could be his Departed: a return to the crime genre that made people fall in love with him in the first place after tackling more Oscar-friendly subjects (WWII, slavery) that proved to be hits at the Oscars. Of all of the talked about or rumoured Tarantino movies, this seems like the most likely to finally win him that Best Director Oscar.  Two writing Oscars or not, Tarantino is still overdue.

    Some Tarantino film alumni I would like to think that it could star (in alphabetical order): Steve Buscemi, Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Robert Forster, Samuel L. Jackson, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Brad Pitt, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Christopher Walken, and Christoph Waltz, as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who had to back out of Django Unchained due to scheduling conflicts), Charlize Theron (who is apparently Tarantino’s neighbour), and even Ben Affleck (a huge Tarantino fan whom QT himself respects as a filmmaker). Some other actors I would love to see Tarantino work with would be Al Pacino and Jack Nicholson, but it might be a bit too cliché getting them to star in gangster movies again. Also, would be great to see Dustin Hoffman or Daniel Day-Lewis working with Tarantino.

    His next project should be about a group of animal activists, hunting and killing down people who kill animals and fur wearers. Like how they did in Inglorious Basterds, where they cut off the scalp of the Nazi’s, they can cut off the skin of the animal cruelty supporters and wear that as a jacket.

    The film can star Christoph Waltz, P!nk,Meryl Streep, Christopher Plummer, and Jennifer Lawrence.

    Whatever it is, I hope he really does get Meryl for it like he said he wanted to.

    Retirement.

    Tarantino used to be one of my favorites, but recently I’ve grown out of him. Django is his biggest hit, and won his 2nd Oscar. I thought Django was a good movie. Did it deserve its awards? Absolutely not. 
    I think Basterds is his best movie. Upon rewatch, Pulp Fiction is overrated. Reservoir Dogs outside of the opening scene crumbles under QT’s narcissism. Kill Bill 1 is a great action movie. Kill Bill 2 is a mess.
    If anything I hope he does something along the lines of Jackie Brown-his most mature outing yet, if he decides to make another movie.

    I’m over QT’s “revenge fantasy plot” films, so I’d like to see some total about-face from him in the future. The 30s ganster caper could be that film, or just a really sick and twisted comedy that only he could come up with. Either of those I’d line up to see opening night.

    Sorry, but no one can suggest ideas to Tarantino. He’s too self-obsessed to let anyone tell him what to do, which has done him good. His next project will be as odd as Django was when it first began as a germ.

    LOLOLOL!!!!! When I heard about this I had no idea it was YOU. You realize, they’d have to go after Jennifer Lawrence, right?

    This entire thread is hilarious but this one takes the cake.
