Well this would be interesting!

Last night, Quentin Tarantino was extremely enthusiastic when he accepted Ennio Morricone‘s Golden Globe for Best Original Score for the composer’s work on The Hateful Eight!

While the Quentin’s latest film has received a lot of praise, the director is already thinking ahead to future possibilities for his western.

After last night’s ceremony, the 52-year-old revealed to The Wrap that he’s looking to adapt his most recent film for the stage. He explained:

“I’ve thought it out completely. I’m just waiting for this [awards] season to be over so I can write it. I gotta put myself there and write it for this.”

On top of writing it, the Django Unchained director also said he would direct the stage version!

More surprisingly, Tarantino went on to dish that Harvey Weinstein originally wanted him to produce the script as a play saying:

“Harvey actually ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ he tried to talk me into doing it as a play first. He said, ├óΓé¼╦£Let’s just say this out loud before we commit to doing the movie.’ And I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£Look, I could. But I like the mystery aspect and the mystery aspect will really only work in the movie. And I have the 70mm and I have the snow. So let me do that.'”

Luckily for us, despite Weinstein wanting the film to originally be a play, and the script leaking online, we got another phenomenal movie from the award winning director!

Now let’s just see if he’s rewarded with an Academy Award nomination when they are announced on Thursday, January 14!
