Quentin Tarantino Keen On Slavery

Quentin Tarantino tells The NY Daily News that he’s interested in doing a Western, albeit set in a different time and place than we are used to seeing on-screen.

Tarantino says “rather than set it in Texas, have it in slavery times. With that subject that everybody is afraid to deal with. Let’s shine that light on ourselves. You could do a ponderous history lesson of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. Or, you could make a movie that would be exciting. Do it as an adventure. A spaghetti Western that takes place during that time. And I would call it ‘A Southern.'”

No further word on when any such project would go into production.
