Uma Thurman talks about Quentin Tarantino's next project, A Southern
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Some film directors are known for keeping secrets about plot details of their film, new characters or any information period, but none so much as Quentin Tarantino. He’s one of the most secretive directors around although he’s usually keeping his entire project underwraps and doesn’t talk about it…at all. So whenever there is a small scrap of news it’s a huge deal, even if it is a rumor. Have no fear though, this piece of news is not a rumor but appears to be a genuine fact. Uma Thurman said during an interview when asked about a third part in the KILL BILL franchise, “I think he (Tarantino) has a script ready to start of a new film, ‘A Southern’, I think it’s really exciting. It’s another new story and a fresh piece of material that he is channeling at the moment. So I think ‘KILL BILL’ lives down the road.” Since Thurman has long been considered a sort of muse for Tarantino this is really big news. The script is apparently “flowing” from Tarantino right now and it will of course be taking up shop at The Weinstein Company, so we’ll let you know how it progresses.
Back in 2007, Tarantino talked a bit about his film A SOUTHERN and he described it as this, “I want to do movies that deal with America’s horrible past with slavery and stuff but do them like spaghetti westerns, not like big issue movies. I want to do them like they’re genre films, but they deal with everything that America has never dealt with because it’s ashamed of it, and other countries don’t really deal with because they don’t feel they have the right to.” Leave it to Mr. Tarantino to tackle such hot topic subjects like slavery and Nazi’s, not many directors would touch those with a ten foot pole.
