As fast as one film gets announced for Quentin Tarantino to make, another announcement comes along having him direct another film. At times it seems unlikely a week goes by without his name attached to another new project. Case in point today where the news is leaking he is going to remake the Russ Meyer film Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
And not only will he remake it, he will also put Britney Spears in the Varla roled (originally played by Tura Satana). So you can rest assured the media will now certainly have fun with the headlines like the Telegraph did: “Britney Spears to play lesbian killer in Quentin Tarantino film” (read article).
Chalk this up to crazy rumor as everything I’m hearing places Tarantino deep into pre-production for Inglorious Bastards. If a Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! happens, more than likely it would be Tarantino in a producing role. With the huge scope and production of Inglorious Bastards looming it would be hard to see Tarantino mess with any other projects, though stranger things have happened and there is always the possibility he changed his mind. However, we have been here 88,000,000 trillion times with reports attaching him to a project, which often gets shot down as a a complete false rumor or one of the 800 films he wants to make or remake at some point later in his life.
