Well this is news i welcome with open arms! It appears Quentin Tarantino may remake the Russ Meyers classic Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! We get the saucy scoop thanks to the professionals at Variety:
WILL IT shock any of you to learn that Quentin Tarantino is hot to remake the 1966 Russ Meyer campy soft-porn classic, “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” (Three tough busty chicks travel through the desert, stirring up trouble and testosterone along the way.) Tarantino wants his version to be even raunchier, natch. His first casting choices are Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and — oh, please! — Britney Spears. What, no Lindsay Lohan? LL loves 1960’s cult-trash. She wants to re-make Ann-Margret’s “Kitten With A Whip.” Lindsay could become Quentin’s new muse. Look what he did for Uma Thurman.
I think this is awesome, after I saw Death Proof I wished the girls were way more “Russ Meyers”. I then started to daydream about a Tarantino remake of a Russ Meyers movie, thought it would be a good fit, and let the idea sleep in my mind. Well good gracious kids, it appears dreams do come true. Now I am not a fan of remakes and generally prefer that the original films be left alone; but a Tarantino remake of this cult classic, could be the best femme fatale onslaught this generation has seen since Kill Bill.
I think Kardashian is an amazing pick, Mendes is a good pick, and Britney is a horrible pick. The Variety journalist (Liz Smith) offers an alternative in Lindsay Lohan and I agree that she would be a better fit than Brit. I must be honest though, if this is going to be an adequate Russ Meyers homage we need massive basketball sized gozangas on one of our heroes. Pamela Anderson or bigger is what I am talking about. Mendes and Kardashian are both packing some serious chesty heat but we need a third that is outlandish in proportions. Mine the world of XXX if you have to, but in a world of super stylized powerful whoreiors, massive breasts are mandatory!
I seriously hope this comes about, and am tickled that Tarantino is the man behind the helm. I just hope Brit is overlooked and a better third is brought on board.
