One of the sentiments that has been repeated when talking about the recent allegations against Harvey Weinstein has been, “Well gosh, I had no idea.” The women who have come forward with their stories definitely knew about the alleged creepiness that was going on. Well, so did Harvey’s good buddy Quentin Tarantino. Quentin saw something, and he didn’t say something, and he’s really sorry about that.
Note to Hollywood: don’t stick up for Harvey Weinstein because karma is going to come down and rightfully snatch your weave. Just ask Oliver Stone! Continue reading
On Wednesday we learned that Quentin Tarantino was putting the finishing touches on a script about the Manson Family murders, and that filming of said movie could possibly begin a year from now. We also learned that some of the actors approached about the film included Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, and Margot Robbie. One source claimed that Quentin was eyeing Margot for the role of Manson Family victim Sharon Tate.
Of course, everything is still speculative. But TMZ recently got Sharon Tate’s sister’s thoughts on the matter, and she has some casting ideas of her own. Specifically, that Jennifer Lawrence shouldn’t play Sharon.
Quentin Tarantino said last year that he was going to retire after making his tenth movie. He’s got two more movies to make to meet that goal of 10. At the time of his announcement, it was rumored he wanted to make an Australia Bonnie & Clyde-type film. No word on if he’s still interested in bank-robbing kangaroos (I’m assuming), but we do know that his next film is rumored to be about the 1969 Manson Murders.
All of you gold-diggers who had recently gotten yourselves foot Botox, toe-plumping fillers, and changed all of your shoes to open-toe sandals in hopes of landing a certain foot fetishist big-name director can cease and desist. Quentin Tarantino is engaged! The Hateful Eight creator is going to marry Israeli singer Daniela Pick. She must have some truly beautiful feet if Quentin put a (toe) ring on it.
Daniela confirmed the good news to the Ynet news site (via the Times of Israel), saying that they’re “very happy and excited.”
“Quentin is in charge of all the planning. He even wants me to stand on my hands at the altar so he can say his vows to my feet! Tee hee!” Ok, she didn’t say that, but I think we know what’s up in Quentin’s House of Peds. The only thing Quentin likes more than feet is using the n-word far too many times in his scripts.
Quentin and his betrothed met in Israel in 2009 when he was there promoting Inglorious Basterds. Quentin’s been a frequent visitor to the country and was honored at the 33rd Jerusalem Film Festival last July.
That’s Quentin and Daniela at the premiere for Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled last month up top. Please note that her foot is prominently displayed. Quentin looks very proud to be associated with such a foot. He wants her to show that foot off to all of the assuredly jealous people that won’t be cuddling up to that foot every night like he will be. None of you better come NEAR this foot! He’s marrying that foot, goddamnit!
Sad news for people who really like watching revenge-themed movies filled with 1/3 of Hollywood’s fake blood supply while simultaneously wondering “God damn, why are all the music cues so fucking loud?” Quentin Tarantino revealed yesterday while speaking at the Adobe MAX creativity conference (via The Hollywood Reporter) that he’s got two more films in him before he retires to the verandah with a newspaper, a warm mug of Lemon Zinger, and several pairs of clean sexy feet to snuggle into. Quentin was asked by Adobe CMO Ann Lewnes about a rumor that he’s done making movies after his 10th. Quentin upgraded that rumor to “truth” and confirmed that his 10th film will be his last.
“Yeah. Two more. And then drop the mic, boom. Tell everybody, ‘Match that shit.‘”
It happens around the 23:17 mark, or just start at the beginning if you want to spend a lot of time with his receding hairline mullet.
Quentin’s 8th film was The Hateful Eight, a movie that gave me dental nightmares for weeks. His next film will be a sort of Australian Bonnie & Clyde. QT didn’t give any information about his last film. I have a feeling it won’t be one single film. Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 2 are two movies, but Quentin considers them as one film on his list of stuff he’s done. Nobody gets a movie making boner more than Quentin Tarantino; he’s basically a college film nerd with money and Brad Pitt’s email address. So I can see his “final” 10th film being a 10-film revenge series that takes him 10 years to make. Although I’m sure Samuel L. Jackson would appreciate the guaranteed job security.
