TEXAS – Quentin Tarantino has decided to show his support for his girlfriend Lianne ‘Spiderbaby’ MacDougall – who is currently embroiled in a plagiarism row – by announcing his next feature film will be taken from a script she wrote. It will be the first time Tarantino has directed a film scripted by someone other than himself. ‘It’s really exciting,’ said the Motormouth genius behind Four Rooms.
I couldn’t believe that this was her first script. It was so mature and compelling. It tells the story of a trouble alcoholic commercial airline pilot who during an accident manages an almost miraculous crash landing. But when crash investigators start digging into what happened, Whip (that’s the name of the pilot) is going to have to confront his own demons and faces a stark choice.
When asked how far along production was, Tarantino had this to say:
Early days yet. We’re just discussing casting. I was like this is a part Denzel Washinggton could play with his eyes closed and Spiderbaby was like ‘Nooooo’. I don’t know why she was so agitated, but anyway, I’ll get Sam Jackson to do it instead.
Flight from an original screenplay by Lianne Spiderbaby MacDougall will start filming late in the Fall.
