The long-awaited Reservoir Dogs video game finally has a release date – 2006. Ha! I’ll believe this game isn’t the vapor ware its been for two years already when I see it on the shelves of Best Buy. Hopefully it does get made, but I wouldn’t get too excited just yet.
I wouldn’t put a ton of stock into this rumor, but with the otherwise complete lack of info about the project, the idea that QT has written parts for Bruce Willis & Sylvester Stallone in Inglorious Bastards is as good as I can do right now. Willis I can understand, but Stallone?
Well, the next James Bond movie is confirmed as Casino Royale, but Tarantino is not going to be involved. Instead, the Bond folks picked Martin Campbell who also directed GoldenEye.
Ultimately, I think this decision was made to keep Bond about Bond, and not run the risk of letting it become a Quentin Tarantino movie about Bond. It likely also relegates the series to just a bunch of ‘more of the same’ movies that will continue the legacy without enhancing it one bit.
