Bond + Tarantino = :D

Quentin Tarantino has a few great projects up his sleeve after Kill Bill: Volume 2 has come and gone. There's the perpetually in-development war movie, Inglorious Bastards and now there's these rumblings:

First up: A possible Kill Bill anime. From chud.com:

"Yeah, I’ve been thinking about revisiting the story in a couple of ways," said the director. "I’ve been thinking about doing it as an anime feature that would tell the entire origin of Bill." Another possibility, Tarantino said, would be a life story of Nikki, the young girl whose mother was killed by the Bride in Vol 1."

Second up: A proposed remake of Casino Royale. If made, it would Peirce Brosnan's last Bond Film. More from Tarantino via CHUD:

"Wouldn't it be great to have a James Bond movie that didn't cost $115 million and only cost $40 million or something like that?" he asks. "You know it's going to make its money back, and we [would] all do good. Maybe we win the critics this time, then you're back in business the way you were before."

"They've got this gigantic franchise, they can't do anything wrong with it. Pierce Brosnan's only going to do one more movie for them, if that, so if he stayed on to do one more with me, let's just this one year go my way and do it a little differently. I won't do anything that will ruin the series."


Well, I think it's a great idea. Is it likely to happen? Not a chance. Every Bond film up to this point has carried a PG-13 or lower rating. Tarantino probably hasn't even seen a single PG-13 film. Apparently, the folks that hold the rights to Bond aren't too keen on the idea. They prefer to keep their banal franchise stirred, not shaken.

UPDATE: Now there's a Kill Bill 3.
