A fistful of links and Johnny Hallyday

Life keeps me busy, but here’s a little rundown in case you missed out on a few stories. We’ll also do a few cool things pretty soon that involve giving away some DVDs and all that, so make sure you check back daily. Also don’t forget to dive into our Archive or/and Community and exchange ideas with fans from all over the globe!

MTV has an interview with Quentin Tarantino looking back on this great year, with Basterds, American Idol and more. He also mentions that something Kill Bill will not be next. Read it here. Meanwhile, The Envelope thinks Basterds will win the Oscar. What do you think? comment below! Here is a story about what’s next for Christoph Waltz, who played Landa in Inglourious Basterds, the role that already got him the golden palm in Cannes. Click here for a little profile and interview at the awards insider. IFC.com has a nice article called “Bad boys grow up”, also including a part on Tarantino. Read it here. Oh and here’s a picture of QT at some GQ awards. I was wondering how long it took some news outlets to come up with a story about Roger Avary’s twittering from jail, but here’s one. And what would the internet be without the latest rumor of a forgotten celebrity claiming to be in a future Tarantino movie? Well it’s Johnny Hallyday’s turn to claim that Quentin is writing a part for him? True or (pulp) Fiction? Read here and here.

    I hope Johnny is not a part of any QT movie. He's traumatized too many innocent ears with his awful songs for too many decades, and as anyone who saw Vengeance can attest, he sucks as an actor as well

    With the hassel the DGA has given Tarantino for directing tv shows while not being a member of the Guild, I don't think there's much of a chance of him winning such an award there.
