With the cordite aftertaste of Inglourious Basterds still in our mouths, we have started to wonder what Quentin Tarantino's going to do next. With rumours that he's planning a "Southern", a Western set in America's Deep South, or a remake of the Shaw Brothers' Come Drink With Me, what can Tarantino tell us about his own plans? Well, it seems that anyone telling you that they know what he's got coming up is on shaky ground, because he hasn't started work on it yet.
I can't talk about it, he said. I can't tell you, I've got to start writing it first. However, he did suggest that is a grain of truth in rumours that the film after the next one will be the third volume of The Bride's adventures. [After Kill Bill Vol 2] I said I would do Kill Bill 3 ten years from now, he grinned. And we're not there yet!
That will, of course, come in 2014, so he's got five years to fill between now and then - and judging by his history, whatever has been rumoured will either turn up in ten years time or not at all. For more from QT, check out our Damon Wise's report from his most recent outing to London here.
