1 10 2009

Though in recent years his buddy Robert Rodriguez has taken the crown of promised projects never completed, Quentin Tarantino is in the hall of fame. Be it the Vega Brothers sequel, his proposed spaghetti western project, a Kill Bill anime or his ability to constantly disappoint fans with his DVD releases (it took five years to get Jackie Brown on DVD and we still  haven’t gotten Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair or a Grindhouse box set), Tarantino is the master in his field. This past year alone he has talked about a prequel to Inglourious Basterds as a mini-series a la Band of Brothers, and now he is back to the classics, bringing back the idea of another bride’s tale in Kill Bill Vol. 3.

Hell Yes: Christoph Waltz Cast in The Green Hornet

14 09 2009

Last week, the people behind Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet wrote up a press release that both confirmed rumor and introduced some new characters to the project. At the time, Nicolas Cage was close to reaching a deal as the film’s major villain, but things fell apart somewhere down the line and he was nixed. Now, Nikki Finke over at Deadline Hollywood is reporting that someone very exciting has taken over the role: Christoph Waltz.

Those that have seen Inglourious Basterds know how incredibly gifted Waltz is as an actor, particularly in playing a villain, so much so that he was awarded the Best Actor prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The character, Chudnofsky, according to Variety, is a “gangster villain,” but we can probably expect a few change-ups in the character now that we are not only dealing with someone with an Austrian accent, but also someone with real acting talent.

To protect our journalistic credibility, it should be said that Deadline Hollywood is, thus far, the only source of the story, so further fact checking will soon ensue. Should anything change about this story, we will be the first to let you know.
