With Django Unchained rocking both the box-office and most film critics’ Best of 2012 lists, Quentin Tarantino is eying his next blood-soaked magnum opus, and if he gets his way, it could star Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep.
Tarantino and Johnny Depp have apparently been trying to work together on a film now for ages, and it looks like the writer-director is working on coming up with just the right project. He says of Depp, “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. 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. I haven’t written the perfect character for Johnny Depp as of yet. Maybe someday I will, maybe someday I won’t. We’ll see.”
Tarantino is also looking to cast The Great One, a.k.a Meryl Streep, in one of his upcoming features. “I actually think we’d get along like a house on fire, even though I don’t really know her,” he confesses.
We all feel that way, Quent. We all do.
