Quentin Tarantino Almost Directed Green Lantern!
All he had to do was say Yes!
This is a audio conversation from MTV with Quentin Tarantino:
"I was offered the 'Green Lantern,' " Tarantino told MTV News. "Not since it's been a script, but just like, 'Hey we own the 'Green Lantern.' Would you like it?'"
Awww man! That would have been the bees knees. Come on! Who wouldn't want to see The Bear Jew vs The Green Lantern? Who would win you ask? Tied at the end of regulation, Bear Jew, in overtime, by 1.
Quentin Tarantino is an avid comic book fan, he admitted that in his 20's all he wanted to see was Comic Book Movies! Hell I'm in my 30's and that's all I still want to see. Quentin goes on to say:
"So there's a little part of me that's like, 'Wow, if I was in my 20's, this would be the genre I'd want to specialize in," he said. "But they weren't making them then, or at least not the right ones. But there also is an aspect where I've kind of outgrown that a little bit."
Would Quentin ever direct an upcoming Comic Book Movie? To which he replied:
"It wouldn't be an existing comic book character," he said. "I'm a writer. I'd want to use my imagination and not have to fight with geeks' memories of how this character should be and, 'Oh, I cast an actor as opposed to a bodybuilder' or it's not as good as the way [DC Comics artist] Neal Adams drew him.' If I were to do something like that, I would want the fun of coming up with the superhero myself."
I could only imagine what kind of super hero Quentin could come up with. Man when your Quentin Tarantino the sky's the limit. When your Jman the limit's the sky.
