Quentin Tarantino is bursting with movie ideas, and over the course of the press tour for “The Hateful Eight,” he hasn’t been shy about sharing them, ranging from a TV adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s “Forty Lashes Less One“ to even a horror flick. And there’s another he’s kicking around that would send him Down Under.
Chatting with “So, Is It Any Good?,” Tarantino revealed, “I do have an idea for an Australian film that would take place in the ’30s. It would be a ‘Bonnie and Clyde‘-ish sort of story set with a couple of outlaws in Australia. We’ll see whatever happens.”
This isn’t actually quite that new. Last month, Tarantino shared the “4 1/2 ideas” he’s got percolating as possibilities as he heads toward a self-imposed retirement from filmmaking after 10 movies. And among them was an idea for a “‘30s gangster movie, like ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ or ‘Dillinger,’ with the tommy guns and that kind of thing. That’s something I haven’t done and that would be cool.”
