Quentin Tarantino Could Do a 1930s Gangster Film Next  image
World War II Nazi movies. Spaghetti westerns. Martial-arts vengeance epics. Botched-robbery thrillers. Quentin Tarantino has mastered the art of genre exploitation. And according to a comment he made on stage at BAFTA in London, he might be zeroing in on his next area of expertise.

BleedingCool has the quote from Tarantino, who was addressing the crowd following a screening of his latest picture, Django Unchained, a slave-opera starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Leonardo DiCaprio. And while Tarantino has been talking about possibly retiring in the near future, hell likely squeeze in a few more projects, and one might be a 1930s gangster picture.
I could conceive maybe someday doing a 30′s gangster picture, or something like that, Tarantino said. I could think of doing another Western, actually.

Thats hardly confirmation of a major announcement about QTs next project. In fact, it sounds like Tarantino rattling off the idea that just happens to cross his rapidly churning mind. But because Tarantino routinely cherry picks from proven genres and hes a self-professed expert on Hollywoods past formulas the idea of him applying his trademark touches to a gangster picture is pretty appealing.

Gangster films, in general, celebrate violence. Theyre often stories of retribution, which Tarantino adores. And its far more believable that Tarantino would try a gangster film over a horror or romantic-comedy. (Then again, I kind of want to see him attempt a Nora Ephron-type movie with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones. That would be a challenge!) So its up to you to decide. Is this Tarantino just brainstorming out loud? Or could be be working himself up for a gangster film in the near future?
