Helen Mirren To Be A Medieval Queen In Tarantino's Next?

With Kill Bill Vol. 3, an Inglourious Basterds prequel, and a secret project he has yet to divulge details about, it would seem that Quentin Tarantino has plenty of options for his next feature. This should surprise no one. After all, the man is one of the most creative in the business, not to mention a notorious motormouth - give him a microphone and he would probably tell you about an idea he had when he was six and sitting on his porch in Knoxville. Needless to say, you have to take all of his "ideas" with a grain of salt, and if you add in the solid credibility of The Sun, there is a high chance that you are crossing the border of Nonsenseville into Bullshit Town.

Said respected news establishment is reporting that Helen Mirren has been approached by the director to play a queen (what a creative choice) in a Medieval period piece. According to an unnamed source, the character "will feature his trademarks - bloody violence and foul language." This sounds super legitimate.

In the years that I have spent reading news about the film industry, I have seen The Sun get exactly one story right: Quentin Jackson's casting in The A-Team. The other 99.9% of their stories are incredible leaps such as Eddie Murphy playing The Riddler and Megan Fox as Catwoman in the next Batman film. So does this mean that this story could possibly be true? No. There is no fucking way this is true. Please move on with your day.
