Ok, so I posted this on the browncoats website. But might as well hit it here. I want to start a petition to Joss Whedon to ask him to request Tarentino take his place as director of possibly serenity and definitley the sequels which are to spawn from this firefly venture into moviedom. Just think, Pulp fiction meeting our favorite little ship. Add Sammy L. Jackson as the new crew member, possibly as a brother to Mal. That would be hot as crap,and you know it. JOIN THE CAUSE!!!!

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I replied to your thread on the Big Damn Board, and will do so likewise here.

If Tarantino gets anywhere near Serenity, I will walk away from the show and never look back. He is quite possibly the most overrated director ever!

Good gravey! Is this guy serious? A petition? For the love of steak, why?

I would be interested to know if QT is a fan of the show however. A list of celebrity fans would be cool.

Oh, you know I've always wanted to see that one but missed it in theaters and the Blockbuster copy has been checked out for two years straight. I hear the scene where she starts a gang war between the Department of Surveyors and the DMV employees features some of Tarentino's best writing! Oh, and the Aardvark mud-wrestling/gunfight scene! I love the bit of that they show in the preview!

Seriously though. Is this real or is this guy just trolling? I dont want that loudmouth pop-culture junkie anywhere my gorram ship or my gorram crew!

Robert Rodriguez on the other hand... with a Joss Whedon script? That could have potential.

My days of taking you seriously are comin' to a middle. As much as I love T's work this is Joss's baby and it is through J's hard work and dedication that this movie is going to happen. I want to see J's vision flying on the big screen.
This may sound stupid but it would be like taking something like ....oh I don't know .. lets say Battlestar Galactica and relaunching it.
We'll get rid of most of the female cast, make a couple of the cooler male characters women, and lets take any notion of family togetherness and make everybody mad. Why not just let T do his own sci-fi movie if thats what he wants to do. That would rock. Lets stop taking in these crappy remakes of old 70's televion and movies and demand better quality from Hollywood. Originality and quallity that someone like Joss has shown in abundance. OOps I started to rant again didn't I. Not that I didn't like the BG revision miniseries. As much as I didn't want to it was good. If they were going to change so much why not change the name as well.

People! Please, please!

Tarantino is Not going to direct serenity, or come anywhere near it. The thread creator said he wanted to start a petition, nothing more. While he's fully entitled to do so, don't lose any sleep.

A) Directors of movies do not switch off based on internet petitions

B) This is Joss's baby. He would give himself a malt vinegar enema before relinquishing it.

C) Tarantino wouldn't touch it anyway. Not his style at all.

That said, why all the Tarantino trashing? Whenever someone insults Firefly with no proper backing, fans pile on (As they should) like frenzied (Though polite and articulate) animals. You don't have to be a fan of QT's style to appreciate a talented director, or at least not trash him with unsubstantiated claims and insults. Yeah, expressing an opinion goes hand-in-hand with explaining why you're not supporting a petition, I just don't like to see good material not given a fair chance. Isn't that why we all hate Fox?

Why would you ever want to change the flavour of the series? That's the whole point!

Joss is over half way through filming Serenity, so Tarantino can't do it. Joss is going to want to do the next two and there's no-one but you wants a replacement. Sorry to say it but you've just got to give up on an awful, awful idea.

Here's the thing: I like Tarantino. I think Kill Bill as a whole is a fantastic film, and I'll happily shell out the dough to see Inglorious Bastards when it comes around.

BUT

I cannot even fathom what's going through the head of the guy who suggested this. Tarantino isn't a genius, he's a movie lover who makes good movies. Joss Whedon, is a full fledged genius and/or artist. That's all there is to say.

I just caught this. That means this has to be a joke, right? Please?

On a side note, the idea of Rodriguez with a Whedon script is fascinating, although I respect Rodriguez more for his methods than his results. He'd certainly approve of the Serenity filming's breakneck pace, although it'd probably be too slow.

Please note, I'm not suggesting that Rodriguez go anywhere near Firefly, but something else written by Whedon, and not torn up by studio execs like certain movies that shall remain nameless but whose initials are Alien: Resurrection.

Are you serious? Did you See Kill Bill voume one or two of crap? I mean seriously.

The direction of that movie was total shite. After seeing KB V1 I had NO interest in seeing V2. None. The only thing that was even a little cool about V1 was some of the Omaghes.. THAT WAS IT. THE MAN HAS NOTHING WORTHWHILE THAT IS ORIGIONAL TO HIS VERY BEING!!!

He is so caught up in idolic fandom of himself that he can't realise he needs to be origionally creative.

Jackie Brown was mediocre. With all the star power in it how could it be? Go figure.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 was total crap. Bad dialogue, cartoon in the middle, Thurman looked liked a recovering crack addict. The best thing about the "movie" was the soundtrack.

I like Tarantino as he should be:Screenwriter!! Leave the directing to someone else.

I, for one, am completely against the idea of moving this thread into Troll Country (you hear that, Haken??). I say this not because I don't think that SumoSamurai's idea is totally assinine (which I do, 'cause it is), but because the replies are the funniest damned posts I've read since the "Top Ten Things I Learned from Firefly" thread months back. Seriously, we are some damned funny people! I mean, "Le Protein Bar", "Ethel the Aardvark Goes Quantity Surveying"--this stuff is comedy gold! If Samurai can get us to be this damned funny, I say he can post all the ridiculous suggestions he wants.

I politely disagree with the idea that Tarantino should hop aboard the Serenity movie boat. I really cannot see anyone but Joss directing the movies. Surprisingly enough, my feelings have nothing to do with the fact that I'm not the biggest Tarantino fan, but more to do with the fact that I can't see him doing Joss's chosen work
