According to Empire Online, they recently spoke with Quentin Tarantino and were able to get the straight dope on the rumors that started a week ago about him directing a Friday the 13th movie.
Here’s what Tarantino had to say on the matter “What’s happening with Friday The 13th? Nothing at all! It’s a complete lie. I like Jason and everything, but I’ve no intention of directing a movie! New Line talked to me about it, but it was a complete fabrication, that article. I would love to do a horror film. I’m just saying it’s not going to be Friday The 13th.”
He then went on to mention the project that has really been on his mind. “My next film is probably going to be Inglorious Bastards, yeah. I’ve written scenes. I’ve written a lot of it but now I have to sit down and start putting it together in a script that I can start shooting. And that’s a different thing.”
Set during World War 2, Inglorious Bastards revolves around group of soldiers on their way to be executed, only they get the chance for a reprieval. He describes them as “Not your normal hero types that are thrown into a big deal in World War II.” This is the only information he will release at present.
