Acclaimed Italian actor Franco Nero announced on February 25 that he is in the process of joining the production of a spaghetti western attached to Oscar-winning writer-director Quentin Tarantino. In the same interview, he indicated that Keith Carradine and Treat Williams were also involved with the film, which was yet unnamed. Meanwhile, over at Ain't It Cool News, longtime contributor Beaks confirmed that Tarantino is involved, and the film is currently slated to be his next filmmaking project, although neither story confirmed that Tarantino was actually directing. Additionally, Beaks was unable to confirm who else has been cast thus far, but he revealed that Inglourious Basterds costar Christoph Waltz will join the film's ensemble cast.

Tarantino's last project, Inglourious Basterds, was a significant critical and commercial success for the filmmaker, whose previous effort, the collaboration Grindhouse, fared poorly at the box office, and received mixed reviews. Tackling a spaghetti western (or western of any kind) seems par for course for the director, whose indefatigable ability to absorb and digest a wide variety of cinematic influences consistently results in films that are tributes, commentaries and reinventions of their respective genres.
