I have been a Tarantino fan for years now, but the man has an incredibly bad habit of fucking with his fans. Much like his friend Robert Rodriguez, he seems to suffer from ADHD, one minute saying that he is working on Project A, only to talk to a reporter the next day about Project B. For those that still aren't grasping what I'm talking about, what did you think about the Vega brothers movie? News is still really blowing up about that mini-series that he wants to do with HBO, huh? Are you still saving to buy Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair and the Grindhouse boxset? The flavor of the last month or so has been the future of Kill Bill Vol. 3, which he has said won't happen until around 2014, but now QT has changed gears once again and is talking about a whole new monster.

In an interview with New York Magazine, Tarantino has revealed that while he has already written 40 pages of a prequel to Inglourious Basterds, he has begun work on yet another project, though he refused to divulge any details. What he did say, however, was that the project would be much smaller than his last film and would not be of the same genre.

Well, looks like we should say goodbye to that prequel (let's come to grips with reality, shall we?), but I am more than intrigued by Tarantino's return to the non-epic. It is almost hard to remember at this point, but the man started as an indie darling and cut his teeth with a film that spent more than half its run time in a warehouse. Even Death Proof seemed to aim at something bigger than standard moving going fare. Don't misunderstand - the Kill Bill series and Inglourious Basterds take up 3 spots on my best of the decade, but today's Tarantino could do with a little less Ennio Morricone and a little more Stealers Wheel.
