You masterfully summed up this matter in two words: Who cares? QT himself is drifting dangerously close to who-cares territory. He should concentrate on finishing one project before risking ridicule with one even more unpromising.

Shhhhh

If you have any interest (Lord knows, not me) in what it would look like had Britney Spears (circa 2001) done porn, all you have to do is check out some of Ashlynn Brooke's work. She's about as close to Hot Brit as you're going to get.

Maxim de Winter

The other small item of concern is that the originator of the role of Varla, non-actress Tura Satana, was terrifyingly physical, a karate expert who had self-confessedly hunted down and beaten or killed a group of men who assaulted her as a teenager. Britney Spears is, um, not.

man, I wish Faster Pussycat would come out on DVD.

Glenn Kenny

Yeah, Maxim, the idea of her playing Varla is also ludicrous—if she's even vaguely "right" for any role it's Billie, the blonde stripper seen above, played by Lori Williams. Is it too cruel to point out that by now she's far too old to play Sue Bernard's Linda?

Rodrigo: There's a British DVD of the pic out that's not bad looking (it's where I grabbed the screen grab from).

I'm hearing that this story isn't actually true. Which is a relief.

Glenn Kenny

Indeed. You know, I never actually thought it would hold up. But I needed SOMETHING today—this week's been one of those frustrating combos of thin inspiration and a lot of non-blog stuff that I have to do...

John

This rumor has been universally decried as nonsense (thank goodness). AICN--which pretty much has a direct pipeline to Tarantino via his Austin film festivals--even posted a story specifically denying it and pointing out Tarantino is deep within pre-production on Inglorious Bastards. They compared it too someone claiming James Cameron is off shooting Aliens 5 with Sigourney Weaver, despite overwhelming evidence that they are making Avatar.

It seems like a story made up by somebody with a superficial knowledge of both Tarantino's work (like, one veiwing of Kill Bill) and an even more limited idea of exploitation cinema.

Tony Dayoub

Sheesh... thank god.

Now will someone please dispel the nasty rumor that Robert Rodriguez has cast Rose McGowan as the She-Devil Red Sonja?

:)

Dan

I automatically assume any media news reported by the Telegraph is bullshit, but this is even more so than usual. Why would Tarantino even want to ASSOCIATE with Spears, other than trying to bang her? And why would he remake Russ Meyer? I'm sure he's a fan but I doubt he has any tastes for remakes, or sexploitation movies (unless they involve feet).

Herman Scobie

Now that Mel Gibson has decided to resume the Lethal Weapon series, he'll find a part for his pal BS. She doesn't look like a cop or a criminal. Maybe she could play a . . . paparazzo. Or would that be paparazza?

Rodrigo Rothschild

Found it. Thanks Glenn!

cadavra

You mean QT hasn't banged her already?

Dan

Cadavra...who knows? I could care less. Maybe he did bang her and that's how the story got started. But I'm leaning more towards sweaty fanboy fantasy myself.
