Quentin Tarantino is a master at his work. His movies have been good, well not all, of course. Star Trek is one example that one can quote of the great person, but did you know that he also had a failed attempt of trying to adapt Casino Royale in his own way?
It may sound strange, but Tarantino is a victim of his own mind, just like wrestling’s Bray Wyatt. They have so many ideas at one time, that creativity can go in any direction. People tend to take both seriously, but one thing leads to another.
Tarantino was hurt that his Casino Royale attempt was lost and he wanted to create a Len Deighton trilogy, by converting three of his novels to one hour each and make them one of the best things around in the industry. While nothing notable has come out of it as of this writing, it would be interesting to see if this does take shape.
He also expressed interest in making his own rival spy movie, adapting Len Deighton’s Game, Set & Match book trilogy. Prior to that, he sought to do a faithful adaptation of the book Casino Royale, possibly with Uma Thurman as Vesper Lynn. He said:
It would be interesting if I could reduce the three novels to an hour each and make a three-hour movie that would have a big kind of impact, just by responding to the characters, and the wonderful chance of casting actors in it, and the nice environment of the drawing room and the cottages in this part of East Berlin, with the Wall still there and everything.
While no one knows how this would have looked, and personally no one would want to know, Tarantino has a mind where he creates his own stories and presents them in his own fashion. The movies do well and that’s a good part, but would anyone be down for a trilogy?
What do you think of this possibility? Sound off in the comments.
