10 Weirdest Movies Quentin Tarantino Actually Wanted To Make

7. A Family Film For Kids

Tarantino is the last director that comes to mind when you hear the phrase "fun for the whole family", even causing a moral outrage in 2003 when he told kids the following message:

"If you are a 12-year-old girl or boy, you must go and see 'Kill Bill,' and you will have a damn good time. Boys will have a great time, girls will have a dose of girl power. If you are a cool parent out there, go take your kids to the movie."

But surprisingly enough, Tarantino later expressed interest in making a kids' film that would be decidedly outrage-free. According to a 2011 interview, "I've actually always wanted to come up with a story that I wanted to do as a kid's movie... I remember from working at Video Archives that if a kid likes a movie, like say Mighty Ducks, they see that movie 20 times, 30 times. They know the names of all the kids in The Mighty Ducks and it's like, that's an audience member I want on my side! I just have to come up with the right storyline."

It remains to be seen if Tarantino would be able to successfully convert his hyper-violent exploitation style into something more family-friendly, but considering the list of his favourite films of 2010 includes Toy Story 3, Tangled and How to Train Your Dragon, he clearly still holds an interest in the genre. And hey, if Robert Rodriguez can do it, then why can't he?
