Quentin Tarantino Making More Genre Stuff

From Iwatchstuff, "Writer/director Quentin Tarantino, having already unofficially ripped-off countless directors and styles throughout his career, has announced he will officially remake the Honk Kong martial arts film Come Drink With Me. The news comes as no surprise, as it's widely acknowledged Tarantino basically jacks off this kind of campy action/revenge stuff, then tries to incorporate it into a wordy film with some washed-up actors.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Tarantino added that he's still going to make his World War II film, Inglorious Bastards, for which he'll be ripping off The Dirty Dozen, then move on to imitate some kind of spaghetti western but set in the slavery-ridden south, allowing the director to possibly throw in some cool blaxploitation shit, too (maybe Pam Grier as a sexy, badass slave escaping her rapist captors, like The Big Bird Cage with more social commentary).

With these three projects on the table, and Tarantino often taking years between movies, it may be as long as a decade before we hear another announcement for a new film, but I'm willing to speculate whatever it is will be something imitating some other stuff from the '60s or '70s, possibly involving kung fu or badass babes, and star.... Patrick Swayze? Maybe Billy Dee Williams? Something like that. And, despite myself, I'll still think it's kind of awesome."

All of that is good news except how Tarantino is going to look years hence when he does his unrequested cameos.
