Quentin Tarantino Next Film Will Tackle The Manson Family Murders
Think it will be bloody ?
Thought Oliver Stone
was making one.
I'm not really surprised.
No thanks. Pass.
It sounds interesting, but I'm wondering how he will be able to manifest his classic style and still make it at least somewhat tasteful. It sounds like it would be kind of difficult when telling the stories of real people.
Just in time to be, then: a "50th anniversary WHITE ALBUM extra"
(but...nobody, other than 'ol Charlie himself, could POSSIBLY outdo Steve Railsback's 1976 performance).
Jeremy Davies was pretty good!
Based on his previous films, I think you and me have a different idea of what the word "tasteful" means.
What I meant, though, is it seems like going a bit too far to put the Tarantino spin on a story like this, whereas he had more freedom to go crazy with imaginary characters.
This doesn't surprise me all his films are strange and bloody... I assume this one will be the same.
Helter Skelter is a great book!
Hopefully they can finally make a great film from it
Is Odenkirk available?
But what part will Samuel L. Jackson play?
"TEX, DID YOU SEE A SIGN IN FRONT OF SPAWN RANCH THAT SAID 'DEAD ****** STORAGE'?"
I don't see how Quentin can tackle this real life horrible event without upsetting many people. Its like Rob Zombie making a film about the Kennedy assassination or something.
Hey remember how he treated Hitler?
Yeah, Hitler was asking for it though.
Me too. A tragic ghastly story like this should not be entertainment.
Not that Charles Manson wasn't, I should add. It just seems harder to inject any fun into this story without stepping on toes.
A Musical ?
Hmm... you might be on to something!
Composer John Adams wrote an Opera about Klinghoffer.
Lotsa Poppa, no doubt.
Karina Longworth did a 12-part (I think) series on her You Must Remember This podcast about Manson, which went into detail about how far-reaching this story was within the Hollywood community. It's conceivable that Tarantino could tackle this story from that angle, rather than the sensationalist one, but I think he'd have to do something more restrained in the mold of Jackie Brown to make it work.
