Tarantino Will Not Portray Roger Corman

It was rumored earlier this week that Tarantino may have been cast to protray Roger Corman in a biopic about Corman. Today, that rumor is being denied. And I hope the denial is accurate as Corman deserves a decent biopic, and I fear Tarantino is too big a personality to play this role. If he played the role, too much of the focus on the film would be about Quentin and not about Corman.

‘Quentin is a great filmmaker and a good friend,’ he said of the 50-year-old, ‘However there is absolutely no truth to the stories that he is going to play Roger Corman.’
