    well at the risk of being crude and an ass............................
    IF QT directed it all I can see in my head is a movie that will be revered as gone with the wind for no reason other than that he made one truly good movie ( reservoir dogs), Also Jason will probably say his first words which will undoubtably be some thing about eating pussy and fuck fuck fuck.

    Sorry QT isn't the god that everyone thinks he is

    MHO of course

    QT is god! :)

    I'd watch this if he ever did it. Gonna be interesting what kinda soundtrack Tarantino would use for a Friday flick.

    I'm willing to put money on that a QT-helmed Friday will, simply put, indeed rule.

    I would watch it because it's a Friday movie. Maybe QT would do a good job, maybe he won't. It really doesn't matter who directs the movie in the end. As long as Jason is in it, doing what Jason does (and doesn't say anything), then I'm on board for another Friday movie. a return to Crystal Lake would be nice though.

    There is hardly anything they could do to make me not watch a Friday movie. Hell, I liked Jason X. Hiring Tarantino is like the best case scenario. Hell yeah I would watch this. All over it. That would be me.

    I'll watch any Jason outing no matter who's behind or in front of the camera.
    That being said, I would love to see what QT could do with one, and would be a little extra hyped for the opening.
    Wouldn't mind seeing Zito get another crack either.

    I like Tarantino but my God leave Friday the 13th alone already and let it die.

    Pretty much my opinion....I would love to see him do a horror film, but not if it means he's going to be handcuffed to a franchise, especially this one. I'd rather see him do a zombie flick or some kind of Fulci-esque homage. Maybe he should remake NEW YORK RIPPER....

    I'd watch it ONLY if Tarantino directed, as I've never been a fan of the series.

    I'd rather see him do something else.

    Yeah, and I'm sure that Jason, under QT's pen, would just HAVE to say his favorite word: Nigger. Can't you just see it now?...
     
  13. QT and Friday The 13th are two things that should NOT go together, despite what anyone says. They really need to retire this franchise, but since most of the people at studios have their heads up their asses, we'll have to go through another one. If they are going to do one, then let someone other then QT direct it. But make it the final Friday The 13th movie!

    I agree that Friday the 13th should just go back to Camp Crystal Lake but I like all of them so it doesn't matter to me.

    I'll be honest, I hated Jason Vs. Freddy, and I completely gave up on the Jason franchise after watching "Jason goes to space" or whatever that was. But I am extremely curious to see what Tarantino would bring to this stupid franchise. And I think a lot of other people that aren't horror movie fans would watch it simply because Tarantino is directing, so it could work as a positive for all the HARDCORE Jason fans. (If it makes a lot of money, we WILL DEFINITELY see more Jason movies in the future.)
     
  17. Latest news, Tarantino is not doing a Friday the 13th movie. If Tarantino ever done a Horror movie, i think a zombie movie with gangsters would be cool like a cross between Dawn of the Dead and Reservoir Dogs

    I love his movies- they are always a fun and graphic ride - I think he would be great for this type of thing- but those that dont like him now im sure would find a reason to not like the movie- dont hate just cuz he makes millions now- i dont feel he has ever sold out in his movie making- he will long be known as a true hollywood original as far as hollywood directors go :fire: ....

    QT is a huge film buff and historian. He would not turn Friday into a martial arts flick.
    QT would take us back to camp, where Jason belongs in the great outdoors. And Sam Jackson would be the local town looney warning the kids to stay away.

    No seriously, I think QT would bring back the 70's feel of the original.

    you do realize that you don't have to watch the movies if you don't like them? I hope they keep making Friday movies forever!
    now that this QT rumour has been laid to rest, I hope they still make another Friday. maybe with a real horror director...and not some MTV-style, quick-cut, hack.
