Tarantino To Tackle Slavery Next?

A glimmer of what Tarantino thinks might be next for him: a spaghetti western set during the time of slavery and the underground railroad. He’s calling it ‘a southern’.

I’d like to do a Western. But 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.’”

Some more very cool custom Inglourious Basterds poster art, this time at Juxtapox Magazine. [thanks to Pete for the link]
And its all for charity benefitting the victims of the earthquake in Haiti:

Upper Playground teamed up with Quentin Tarantino and SA Studios to release the “Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds” to benefit the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. On February 18th, 2010 from 6 – 9pm, the world will get to preview and purchase the “Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds” at The Upper Playground Art Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles.

Its a shame that this is an in-person event only. They could have sold a bunch of these unsigned over the net for $5 or $10 each.
Also, be sure to check out Pete’s painting of Quentin that manages to work in references to several QT films.
