Quentin Tarantino May Be Prepping a Spaghetti Western

If it wasn't already clear by the way he's employed Ennio Morricone music in several of his films, Quentin Tarantino loves himself some spaghetti westerns. Now, though, it appears he'll be mounting one himself: Actor Franco Nero revealed that he'll be costarring in Quentin Tarantino's next film, said to be a tribute to Sergio Leone, and AICN confirmed the rumor and added Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds breakout Christoph Waltz to the cast. The site says it'll shoot later this year in Italy and Spain, and as the In Memoriam tribute at last night's Oscars reminded us, this will be Tarantino's first project without longtime editor and collaborator Sally Menke, who died last year.
