Vega Brothers Lives On

Michael Madsen is still promoting the idea of a Vega Brothers movie. In the video below he says that he and Tarantino talked about it recently in Tijuana and here’s the concept as it currently stands.

“I’d be Vic Vega’s twin brother, he’d be Vincent’s twin brother and we’re both on a flight from Los Angeles, having just been released from prison, and neither one of us know that we’re the twin brother of the other one and we’re both on our way back to LA to avenge the death of our brothers.”


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.’”
