Quentin Tarantino considering making a kids movie or mini-series

The sky’s the limit for Quentin Tarantino, and he’s ready to start experimenting. Though he’s said in the past that he’d prefer to only make a total of 10 movies and that an “Inglourious Basterds” spinoff called “Killer Crow” could be one of them, he’s now added a kids movie and mini-series to the list of projects he’d like to tackle.

“I just haven’t come up with a good [kids movie] story yet or something like that, but I could be interested in that,” Tarantino told Craig Ferguson. “I did a movie and one of the assistant editors on the film had worked on ‘Mighty Ducks 2’ or something and they were talking about when they would do the screenings for ‘Mighty Ducks’ and they would bring the kids in, and they were talking about the fact that the kids that they brought in were so into the first ‘Mighty Ducks’ that when they went to see ‘2,’ they were rabid with excitement. I kind of like the idea of an audience being rabid with excitement.”

Tarantino went on to say that he was really impressed with the miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys” this year and that he’s always thought about doing a miniseries. In fact, he went on to say that he had originally conceptualized “Inglourious Basterds” as a miniseries, but then Luc Besson convinced him to make it as a movie. That hasn’t stopped him from toying with the idea though, and it could be something Tarantino returns to.

“I would totally do something like that. I write these big long scripts and I usually have to cut them down to make them the right size length,” he said. “I could totally see myself writing a cool novelistic life story not having the restriction of a two-and-a-half hour time limit.”

In a separate interview with Charlie Rose, Tarantino admitted he’d also like to bring Johnny Depp into one of his projects in the future.

”We would love to work together. We’ve talked about it for years. Not that we get together and talk about it for years, but from time to time,” he said. ”We’re obviously fans of each other. It just needs to be the right character. I just need to write the right character that I think Johnny would be the right guy to do it with. And if he agrees, then we’ll do it. And then it’ll be magical.”

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
