Tarantino To Return To Acting

Quentin Tarantino, who once upon a time starred on Broadway in an ill-advised revival of “Wait Until Dark,” is set to return to acting with a role in Franco Nero’s upcoming western “The Angel, the Brute and the Wise.” Nero, the Italian star of Sergio Corbucci’s classic spaghetti western “Django,” will direct and star in the film. On casting Tarantino, he told Box Office Magazine: “I made him [Tarantino] sign a letter of intent saying that he would do the movie. I am sure that very soon we will do it.” The director also confirmed that “The Angel, the Brute and the Wise” will be a homage to John Huston (who cast him in 1966’s “The Bible”) and Sergio Leone, the godfather of the spaghetti western genre — which Tarantino has adored for years.
