Giant Lie?? British Paper Reports Tarantino Is After Britney Spears For FASTER PUSSYCAT Remake!!

Published at: Aug. 7, 2008, 1:38 a.m. CST by hercules

I am – Hercules!!
This sounds like complete complete utter bullshit to me, but the rumor has been swirling so furiously it has taken hold of mainstream media. Some British newspapers cannot be trusted, and the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph is claiming that Quentin Tarantino is wooing Britney Spears to star as a deadly lesbian stripper in a remake of “Faster Pussycat Kill Kill.” "Quentin is convinced Britney will be brilliant. She's delighted," says an unnamed source who apparently knows the minds of both Tarantino and Spears. Read the Telegraph’s “scoop” here. Will Tarantino bother to confirm or deny? Stay tuned.

    The Only Way This Film Would Be interesting

    by Media Messiah

    If Tarantino remakes Faster Pussycat as a full penetration porn movie, which he, Tarantino, has been threatening to direct for now. I don't call Britney Spears playing a murdering stripper of interest--maybe when she was clean cut and had a good reputation, that would have surprised everyone, but now, it's like so what. We've seen Britney do the stripper thing on stage and in videos, and kiss Madonna on stage thus the stripper lesbian thing and any surprise, is gone.

  • Aug. 6, 2008, 11:57 p.m. CST

    Get the facts right.

    by V'Shael

    That's like saying All American Newspapers can't be trusted. Bit of a generalisation, isn't it? <p> The Telegraph is a bit of right-wing news paper. Think Fox News in terms of reliability. <p> It's not a tabloid like The Sun, in terms of definite unreliability though.

Yeah way to have some credibility . for the record I would love to see QT do something with spears, that would actually be interesting , and more in the spirit of the type films he himself would liked to have watched . does anyone really want to watch a war film staring eli roth and one of the guys from the office ?

    Um, generalize much?

    by oxfordruse

    There is nothing wrong with The Daily Telegraph in terms of reliability. It is a respected broadsheet newspaper alongside The Times and The Financial Times. It is politically conservative (not, as someone else says, comparable to the right-wing nutjob channel that is Fox News at *ALL* - hell, it's The Times that Rupert Murdoch owns) but that doesn't apply here because this is showbusiness news.

    WTF HAPPENED TO TERA PATRICK?

    by Zeke25:17

    She pretty much woulda been perfect for this thing; and the one reason most guys woulda plunked down ten bucks to see the movie. Plus she fits QTs fetish like a dickskin condom: long legs and great feet. Britney Waste of Space Spears? Are you fucking KIDDING me? If true, this confirms that Tarantino has lost what little remains of his mind.

  • Aug. 7, 2008, 2:05 a.m. CST

    And wildly off topic, regarding Brett Favre:

Hey--you RETIRED. You QUIT. And I never forgave Junior Seau for that little switcheroo of his, either. Make up your concusssion-addled mind, fellas, hah?...And Lordofhell, it's the Tura Santana role that BRITNEY supposedly is getting, and that Tera Patrick was SUPPOSED to get! Not to sound like too much of a fanboy here, but I'd drink a glass of Tera's bathwater any damn day of the week! Does anyone honestly even LIKE Brit anymore?

    by supertoyslast

    Tabloids just make things up or put 2&2 together and get 5. It's also really irritating when they "report" film news from 3 months ago just to fill some space. Broadsheets are better, but they tend not to treat news about films and TV shows as "real news" so rarely check their facts properly and often make really basic mistakes. <p>This kind of stuff is only reported in broadsheets in an effort to be popular. It's embarrassing how often broadsheets have tabloid-type stories and pictures on their front pages.

    If there was do talent in the first place its no wonder why she crashed and burned. This isn't like Mickey Rourke or John Travolta, real talent tarnished by bad decisions. So even if this were true Tarantino isn't doing anyone any favors. How about considering a real actress instead? You know, a professinoal.
