Tarantino Making Untitled Spaghetti Western & Christoph Waltz Has A Role?

AICN is reporting that Quentin Tarantino's next film will be a Spaghetti Western set to shoot sometime this year. They also mention that Christoph Waltz will have a role in the film. Zero plot information is attached to this story and who Waltz will play. Take this news with grain of salt as this could be from mouth of Tarantino himself but could never end up happening. He's notorious for talking up possible projects but never actually happening. Yet, it's interesting to think this could be the film he makes before jumping into Kill Bill 3.

Tarantino has long talked about his love for Italian director Sergio Leone and being a major influence in his films. Leone directed some of the best westerns ever put on film including Once Upon A Time In The West and The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. They say the project could start shooting sometime this year in Spain and Italy. I could see see Quentin doing a similar way of shooting that he did with Inglourious Basterds. Shooting and editing at the same time to have it ready for a premiere at Cannes next year.  If true this just became my most anticipated film of 2012.
