Update: A rep for Britney Spears is saying the story is false.
All of Quentin Tarantino‘s future projects will be cast entirely using horror directors and washed up pop singers…
Last night it was announced that Eli Roth was cast in the World War II film Inglorious Basterds, and now the Telegraph reports that Britney Spears will play a killer lesbian stripper Varla in Tarantino’s remake of the 1965 cult film Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
Now I understand Tarantino made a name for himself by casting against traditional standards, sometimes casting the forgotten Hollywood wash-up. Now it looks like he has set his sights outside the realm of acting, toward the music industry. The film tells the story of three thrill-seeking strippers. Spear’s character murders one member of a couple with her bare hands, and later has sex with another girl. The other two stripper leads have not yet been cast. Maybe Tarantino will sign Amy Winehouse… because, why not?
