Feud Watch: Tarantino vs. Weinstein!

If sources are to be believed, the famously unbreakable bond between Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein might be close to the breaking point. 

Weinstein is pushing Tarantino to cut a whopping 40 minutes out of his new film Inglourious Basterds, which currently sits at a running time of 2 hours 40 minutes. It doesn't help matters that The Weinstein Company is on the brink of collapse and badly needs movies that can be played many times a day.

Sharon Waxman, guru of the movie business, says this about Tarantino's predicament:

The company needs a big hit, and soon. Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds premiered to mixed reviews at the Cannes Festival. Weinstein and coproducer Universal are both trying to convince Tarantino to cut it by 40 minutes. (It’s now 2’40”, and considered too long a sit, especially for American audiences.)

But Tarantino isn't exactly the kind of guy who likes to be pushed around, especially when it comes to his movies. The Hollywood Reporter quotes Tarantino as saying:

It's a no-f***ing-around kind of pacing. That doesn't mean it's a big action movie. It just means there's a good, steady pacing. I don't luxuriate in every scene. But it's got the mix of dialogue with the action. It's probably the closest thing I've ever done to Pulp Fiction.

Well, I guess that's that. Time for Tarantino to walk away from Weinstein and his caustic ways. He built the house of Weinstein and he might just be the man to tear it all down. Is anyone really sad about that?
