We just scratched the surface on Quentin Tarantino movies and their shocking facts. Perhaps the first five didn’t exactly “wow” the diehard fans out there. Well, try these next five on for size.
6. QUENTIN TARANTINO HAD A UNIQUE INTRO TO MOVIES
The movie industry is not an easy one to get into. Some writers work years before hitting it big. Tarantino is a bit different, though. His first paid writing gig ever was From Dusk Till Dawn. He got a whopping $1500 for the script which allowed him to sneak a foot in the Hollywood door.
7. TONY SCOTT ALMOST DIRECTED QUENTIN TARANTINO MOVIES
By some lucky fate, Tony Scott chose to direct True Romance over Reservoir Dogs. While the former is still an amazing film, everyone is thankful that Reservoir Dogs got the proper treatment. No offense, Tony Scott.
8. QUENTIN TARANTINO DOESN’T LOVE ALL OF HIS MOVIES
Believe it or not, Tarantino knows a bad film from a good one. Even though Death Proof wasn’t necessarily “bad” even Tarantino admits he over tweaked the movie.
9. SIMON PEGG WAS ALMOST IN QUENTIN TARANTINO MOVIES
We know now Michael Fassbender as the legendary Archie Hicox in Inglorious Basterds. However, Tarantino originally wanted Simon Pegg for the role. Unfortunately for Pegg, he dropped out to shoot a Steven Spielberg film. Apparently, Pegg has some deep regrets about that one.
10. QUENTIN TARANTINO MOVIES MADE DICAPRIO UNCOMFORTABLE
According to Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio was quite uncomfortable during one scene in Django Unchained. In this scene, DiCaprio had to repeat a variety of racial slurs, which he didn’t like. Foxx later stated that Samuel L. Jackson took Leo to the side for a pep-talk. We can only imagine how intense that must have been but apparently, it got the job done and Jackson used his trademark swearing to get the point across.
