Tarantino Tells BAFTA He’d Like To Make A 30’s Set Gangster Film – UPDATE

Quentin Tarantino tonight presented Django Unchained at BAFTA in London tonight, the film’s first screening in the UK. It was very well received indeed.

After the movie, he stayed to take part in a Q&A and that, as you might imagine, was also a real crowd pleaser, full of rapid-fire cinematic allusions and imagery.

The big headline quote, however, came when he teased where his ambitions lie at the moment. I imagine he’ll be grilled about this comment for weeks, if not months, now.

Because, up there on stage, Tarantino suggested that he’d like to tackle a 1930’s-set gangster story. A genre he’s an expert on, no doubt. I certainly think I’d like to see him portray the depression.*

As to when he might do this… well, there are tweets out there from other attendees saying he wants to do it “next” but Tarantino certainly didn’t say this on stage tonight. It was a future project, but where in the future? He wasn’t even hinting.

UPDATE: Here’s an exact quote:

I could conceive maybe someday doing a 30’s gangster picture, or something like that. I could think of doing another western, actually.

Tarantino does seem to have picked up the pace a little recently. There’s a lot of films rattling around in that head of his, I’m sure, and only so long before the possibility of shooting on his beloved analog, photochemical filmstock becomes prohibitively expensive.

*Maybe it won’t be set in America. One of the better recent gangster films was Let the Bullets Fly, set in 1920’s Sichuan. It won’t have escaped Tarantino’s notice.
