Tarantino hot to remake "Faster Pussy Cat! Kill! Kill!"

Post by roulette67 » Thu Jan 17, 2008 9:33 am

According to Liz Smith gossip queen, Tarantino wants to remake the 1965 Russ Meyer campy soft-porn classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (Three tough busty chicks travel through the desert, stirring up trouble and testosterone along the way.)

Tarantino wants his version to be even raunchier. His first casting choices are Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and Britney Spears.

------------------

Britney Spears!!! please say this is only a rumor. I like the idea of remake, but the casting needs serious rethinking.

It could be fun, but i doubt it will ever happen. By the way, how on earth can any one call that movie soft-porn? I wouldn't even call it erotic.

yeah and we all know how reliable Liz Smith is when it comes to gossip and how much QT likes to talk out his ass when it comes to stuff like this.  He probably just wants to hop in bed with all them and have a foursome.

Tarantino wants to make everything. Most of the time, the press take Tarantino's passing comments about how cool it would be to do this or that, way too literally.

But even if that were going to happen... one thing I will say is, "shouldn't he be getting women with bigger breasts?" We're talking about Russ Meyer here. I mean, Kim Kardashian and Eva Mendes I guess have big breasts by Hollywood standard, but not be Russ Meyer standard.

He already did his Faster Pussycat kill kill homage with Kim, Zoe and Abby. If QT ever cast Britney Spears in a film, I think that would be the day I stop being a QT fan.

This better be bullshit.

I just saw this reported on the TV news and does seem to have some truth behind it. QT is making some weird choices these days so I have no problem believing this. I bet the whole film will focus on each and every girls feet.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if QT cast Britney in one of his movies. I think he has come to a point where his ego is so high that he believes he could directing any one into giving a good performance on screen.

Can you imagine the field day the critics would have if Britney is cast in a movie right now? Everybody just loves to take the piss out of her nowadays. Tarantino's career would be doomed.

QT should just forget about everything and work on the Inglorious Bastards script period. Id rather wait 10 years for that than see him do a Faster Pussycat remake (if this is even true).

IB is the film that could make or break him for definite. On another site, someone said that QT didn't want his filmography to be like other directors' where you can see a noticeable dip in quality during a certain period. That QT wanted his catalogue to be filled with great films. But how with Death Proof, he has fucked all that up. Now, that's very interesting to me. I know QT said that. When he was younger, he would study people filmographies. He could say where a director fell off, where they made some fucked up decisions. He would take it upon him to try and tell these very filmmakers about it. At one stage, he pretended he was writing for a magazine and got interviews with all these filmmakers he loved, like Brian De Palma. QT was always up himself a bit, but it's astonishing how he could talk to his idols and tell them how it is. In fact, when he met Travolta for Pulp Fiction, Travolta declined. He didn't like some of the themes in the film. QT got into QT-serious mode, and layed out Travolta's filmography in front of him. Telling him things like "In the 80's you did this film, when you should have actually done this film". And he went through the whole of Travolta's career telling him exactly what mistakes he made and what he should have done instead. He told him how Pulp Fiction could rectify that. How it would "make" him again. Astonished at just what had taken place, Travolta (despite being kicked in the nuts figuratively), changed his mind, respected QT's straight up honesty and agreed to do Pulp Fiction. And look what happened!!

So with the critical shots taken at him, where a whole lotta people made their dislike for Death Proof known (and shown by the Box Office figures somewhat), I wonder if that has got to QT a bit? Like wheether it has made him think that he may be losing his way a bit. That he shouldn't just say yes to an idea his best friend fed into him.

And so with Inglorious Bastards, he's gotta work much harder than what he did for Kill Bill. He has to put right the wrong that Death Proof did to him. If he is to be liked by the masses again (and right now, the temperature based on the different forums I visit, is that QT has fallen off with Volume 2 and DP being disappointing), he has to re-acquire that sense he has of what will entertain the majority. He had it with RD and PF, but he has to make a compromise somewhere. Death Proof was Quentin Tarantino at his most self-indulgent. Can he really afford to be like this with Inglorious Bastards. It's ok to say "well us fans will love it", but if wants his film to get critical acclaim, he has got to go back to his roots. He can't afford to make a film solely for his proper fanbase.

What's interesting is, Kill Bill brought a whole other fanbase to him. Death Proof on the other hand really seperated the "proper" fans from the "pseudo fans". So depending on how IB turns out, it will either cement his reputation in the hall of fame of directors, or he will lose respect and be seen as just another director who showed promise at first but fell off.

For some reason, and I know I musn't think this just yet, but Inglorious Bastards seems to me to be his "true" masterpiece. Like how you remember a director for one stand out film. Right now, the greatest film I have ever seen is Pulp Fiction. Something just tells me "not for long...."

I always think back to when QT was talking to Charlie Rose and they were discussing when directors start to lose their shit. Its all about when they stop caring. Thats the main word: CARING. When QT stops caring about making the best films ever and being the best in his field, thats when he should quit. I hope hes not at that point yet.

I do think that Death Proof was not really from QTs own heart. He wrote it and he directed it but he probably wouldnt have never made it if Bobbo hadnt rushed into his house and said: "LETS MAKE SOME MOOBYS!!"

Bastards will def be back to the really serious stuff from QTs own heart. Its not gonna be some funky side project he does cuz Bobert showed him some CGI'd Machete footage with scratches and cool titles.

God I hope this is nothing more than QT talking shit. I will watch anything he makes, but god damn! If QT has to make another lightweight/exploitation film than I wish he would just make another gangster flick. Something lean and tight like True Romance. No samurais or zombies. Just a couple of tought guys and hot chicks hurting each other.

It seemed to me like DP had a lot of QT's personal feelings/possible experiences in it.  I can't say I didn't enjoy Death Proof.  I did.  I thought it was kickass.  Nevermind I'm a chick that would LOVE to be in Zoe Bell's role...  I think he did fine with DP

The box office sales only showed the lack of proper advertising.  It's almost like they assumed that there were so many people out there that care about the names Quentin Tarantino, and/or Robert Rodriguez, that they need not bother hyping it.  Had it not been for the internet, I'd have probably never have known it was comming until it was out.

To say that DP was a failure is to say QT's failed as a film-maker.  He didn't!  No.  It's not PF, and it's not RD, but it's still good.  It's still one of the best genre films to come out last year.  It's certainly the best exploitation film in ages.  And that car chase ROCKED!

Now onto what's next.  IG will be not only the BEST war movie ever made... It will be the ONLY one that the mass of this generation is going to see and pay attention to.  He's a fucking genius for revisiting this genre.

And back on topic.  IF he decides to take time off of IG to re-make FPC, I'll watch it, but I won't be happy about it.  However, who's to say it wouldn't be good?

Goddamn!!!  Suddenly DP has went from  QT's best movie ever to he shouldnt have made it. When did the flip flop take place? I dont think the movie is that good, except for the first half and the first car crash (which is AMAZING), but you guys went apeshit over it. Ify, I dont recall if you went apie or not, I guess I could look that up.

QT himself took the grindhouse idea and ran with it. RR was actually shocked when QT started making the rounds telling everyone who would listen that he was making a grindhouse flick with RR. QT seemed very, very excited to be doing this beloved project as he talked so much about wanting to do it, how much he loved doing it and how many times could he mention his film collection? I dont know where this " not really from QTs own heart" horse shit comes from. QT simply made a mistep and didnt give the public what they wanted from him but rather what he wanted to give the public. The public rejected it. So what? The real question is will he give his fans what they want from him or do another side project. Ive been questioning QT every since he was making the circuit prior to DP being released. When he went on TV and talked about how cool American Idol is I almost tore down my giant Pulp Fiction poster! QT is changing and im not sure he knows what cool is anymore. I hope he proves me wrong but if he hires Spears for his next film Im gonna burn my Giant Pulp poster and piss on the ashes!

Speaking about myself, I refrained from posting any opinions about Death Proof during the first months. Thing is that it is very easy to get carried away with the anticipation when your favorite director comes out with a new movie, and that may cloud your judgement. I wanted the movie to sink in after some time so that I would be more objective in my estimation.

I liked Death Proof. I would give it a 7.5/10 rating. But it is probably my least favorite QT film. The main reason for this is because I felt it was quite uneven. There were parts which were purely orgasmic (the crash and the last 20 minutes) and some parts which, I am not ashamed to say, bored me. Which is quite strange because I would have never dreamt I would have been bored by any dialogue written by QT before this movie came out. This is why this is the first and only QT movie till now in which I am tempted to just skip to the good parts instead of sitting through the whole thing.

One must also take into consideration the fact that Grindhouse was firstly concieved as a gimmick. In the sense that QT and RR first thought of this Grindhouse gimmick, THEN tried to come up with their own stories. It is not like they had the stories already written and then decided to incoroprate them into a grindhouse experience. I think that made a difference in the quality of the final product.

Still, I am proud more than ever to be a QT fan. It is quite difficult to find another director whose first five films are of such quality in his filmography. I just hope he doesn't taint it with this Faster Pussycat remake.

You have a tendency to over-exaggerate. I don't think anybody with the exception of a handful of people on this forum said that Death Proof was QT's best film. If you payed attention to the ratings it got, it got 9/10 or less. Whereas I'm sure these same people gave his previous films 10/10. Nobody here doubts the quality of DP, it's a brilliant film. Personally, I had tears in my eyes after I watched it, because I had the nerve to believe other people's opinion that QT had fallen off, that it was boring, that the dialogue was shit etc. At no point did I ever get bored whilst watching it, and it is one of the best films I have seen since Kill Bill.

What we're trying to say is, in terms of QT's own very high standards, Death Proof just does not cut it. It's obvious that DP is levels below his other films, and that is shown through it's minute aspects, i.e. RD, PF, JB and KB feel like big films. They feel like huge projects and are epic in their own ways. DP however, is relatively small. Everything happens on a micro level. Everything is low key. It FEELS like a small film after you've finished watching it. In that way, I find it hard to compare with QT's other films as it is on a whole other level. It's QT doing things in a non-QT way (in a sense that it's not like how he did things in his previous films), but manages to stay very QT. It's a whole other side to him. It lacks so many things found in his previous 4 masterworks, and re-works other things (like the trunk shot). In essence, everything seemed to be watered down. It seemed like everything was 2nd best, whereas in his other films, everything was first class. For example, the dialogue didn't have as much humour or wit, the characters weren't "larger than life" (meaning they all took a back seat, pardon the pun), the soundtrack was filled with "ok" songs, the black suits were missing and I think that signifies something. It's like he purposefully departed from his other films and wanted us fans to see that. As Pete says, it was experimental. I mean the scene where the motorcyclist has a crash, is unlike anything QT has ever done, yet it feels so QT.

The only thing I don't really like about DP is the idea behind explaining to us (the viewer) of what had just taken place through a character in the film (Earl McGraw). I'm like "why doesn't QT just let us decide ourself what we think his motives were". In fact, I was quite surprised at the inclusion of this scene. It's one of the other ways QT departs from his tradition style of story-telling. He hasn't done it before, in fact he's made a point at purposefully letting us decide what we think happened after a certain situation. I never liked this device in Psycho (how Bates' intentions and motives are layed out in front of you via a character that explains everything) and that's exactly the effect QT was going for, but it just didn't appeal to me. On a smaller scale, imagine if QT told us what happened to Lee, would it be more or less thought-worthy?

With regards to my perception of it prior to it being released, well I was always sceptical. Not about the quality, but the type of film it is. I don't much like the horror genre. But of course it was never quite going to be a horror film. Horror and musical, never have liked them. So for me, it wasn't that appealing. The only appeal was that it was written and directed by Quentin Tarantino! Thankfully, I loved the film, but it comes bottom on my "best QT films" list.

Ive been questioning QT every since he was making the circuit prior to DP being released. When he went on TV and talked about how cool American Idol is I almost tore down my giant Pulp Fiction poster! QT is changing and im not sure he knows what cool is anymore. I hope he proves me wrong but if he hires Spears for his next film Im gonna burn my Giant Pulp poster and piss on the ashes!
The thing with QT is, he doesn't go with everybody else. He has his own tastes and opinions and isn't scared to convey them. I watched an interview with him on MTV2 with Zane Lowe. QT was choosing tracks for them to play. Right at the end, he said he liked Maroon 5 and you could see Zane's heart break. He was so disappointed with QT, and let him know that too. It took him a while to get over it, and asked QT to introduce it. QT was surprised they were gonna play it. Then there was a message on screen saying "you didn't think we were actually going to play Maroon 5 did you?" I thought it was funny. The thing with QT is, he likes almost everything, and tends not to like some people, most people think are great. I don't see how what QT likes has any bearing whatsoever on his films. I would never do some stupid shit like "oh my God, QT likes American Idol? That's it, I hate Pulp Fiction now, I'm going to tear my poster down, burn it and piss on it afterwards". That to me is like the definition of stupidity and exaggeration. Why should what he did 14 years AFTER Pulp Fiction, change my perception of it? It's stupid shit like this that annoys the hell out of me. Like people have a right to dictate what QT should and shouldn't like. When my idols (Tarantino David Gilmour) say they like something that I don't, I don't throw a strop. I accept it, afterall - to each his own! Until I hear QT himself say he's thinking about hiring Spears as an actress, I'll reserve my judgement till then.

He was so disappointed with QT, and let him know that too. It took him a while to get over it, and asked QT to introduce it. QT was surprised they were gonna play it. Then there was a message on screen saying "you didn't think we were actually going to play Maroon 5 did you?" I thought it was funny.
I watch MTV2 all the time, especially Gonzo, best channel to stay tuned with the best of brit indie rock. And I also watched this interview, I was disappointed too when he said he likes Maroon 5 but in a way, sometimes he can have bad tastes, so I was in the end more amused to know he likes the band. Plus I totally loved the message about not playing the vid, ahah, time for revenge !
