The deal fell thru, but Tarantino was in the running to play Brainy Smurf in the planned live action & animated film version.
So far, the ensemble includes Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf, Katy Perry as Smurfette, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf and Kevin James as Hefty Smurf and Alan Cumming (who has prior experience in the wild blue yonder of cinema) as Gutsy Smurf.
This interview with interview with Roger Christian has several nuggets about Tarantino that I hadn’t heard before – including Quentin’s connection with the uber-horrible Battlefield Earth.
So there are a few of these stories going around that Lady Gaga is going to play an assassin in Tarantino’s next movie.
This raises a couple of questions:
- Does this mean QT’s next movie is Kill Bill 3? I can’t see that his ‘Southern’ idea would have assassins in it.
- How drunk was QT when he told Lady Gaga she could be in his next movie?
QT is being sued for $1m for allegedly stealing the idea for Lucy Lui’s character from Dannez Hunter.
Couple of obvious questions:
1. Why wait so long to file the suit?
2. Why only seek $1m.
