When I interviewed Quentin Tarantino many years back for Death Proof, his installment of Grindhouse, he was hesitant to call the movie starring Kurt Russell a flat-out horror film. It certainly has elements, but it's not "horror" per se. That said, I'd love to see what Tarantino could do with a horror film and the prospect of seeing him get behind the camera for one is not out of the question.
In an interview about his career with The Independent, Tarantino hinted that we could possibly see one from him.
"I've done what I wanted to do by the time I was this age. Today, I'm further down the road. There are no genres I absolutely want to do any more, like ticking boxes: 'This, done'. I don't think about Kill Bill 3 that much, as… we already visited them," he said. "If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu's movies, maybe. Or a horror movie, perhaps."
That's not a confirmation that one is happening. Nor is it a "I'd never do one." But he's interested, and that's cool with me. It's not the next film he'll do. He's at work on a western, apparently, as he revealed last month.
