Something tells me we’ll see Rambo lift up the head of a vanquished Predator before we see the following. Still, it’s perfect midnight fodder. Variety is reporting via legendary gossip columnist Liz Smith that Quentin Tarantino wants to remake Russ Meyers’ 1965 exploitation flick Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! with Britney Spears, Eva Mendes and Kim Kardashian. And, to add another lascivious layer of his homemade icing, QT wants to make his version “even raunchier.”
In the original film, the three female leads were strippers racing through the desert in various hot rods including a Porsche, who come upon a vulnerable couple. They kidnap the girl after doing away with her mate with a karate kick to the back, and later come upon an old handicapped redneck with two idiot sons and a rumored secret stash of cash. They sit down for a fried chicken dinner with the gals in bikinis before all hell breaks loose.
This sounds like Death Proof by way of TMZ or E! And frankly, it’s just frightening. And I love how Mendes is thrown into such a loose and sloppy equation like her career is no big whoop.
