In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter legendary director Quentin Tarantino joined a “director’s roundtable” to share stories and discus the future of film. One line in particular stuck out to HBOWatch, though when the director of such cult classics as Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction had this to say about a possible HBO series:
“So if I’m gonna do TV in public, I’d rather just write one of my big scripts and do it as a miniseries for HBO, and then I don’t have the time pressure that I’m always under, and I get to actually use all the script. (…) So if I’m gonna do another big epic thing again, it’ll probably be like a six-hour miniseries or something.”
Epic, sprawling, 6 hour miniseries? You’ve come to the right network, Mr. Tarantino.
This isn’t anything new. Artists of all kinds are in love with HBO for the freedom the network typically gives to creators both financially and intellectually.
We’d love to see Quentin bust out a mini series on HBO’s air. In fact, we’re quite sure HBO is pulling every string it can right now to respond to the award winning director.
We’ll keep you updated with all the latest on this tantalizing prospect.
