Quentin Tarantino is eyeing a romantic comedy for his next film project - because he's convinced he could revolutionise the cheesy genre.
The filmmaker, who was nominated for the Best Director Oscar for Inglourious Basterds, is best known for helming action-packed and violent films including Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs - but he insists he'd love to try his hand at romance.
He tells Film.com, "I'd love to make a romantic comedy and take it out of the ghetto it's been exiled to.
"I have done love stories, they've just been in my other movies. True Romance's title was not ironic. Sure, James Gandolfini almost beats Patricia Arquette to death and she has to blow him away with a shotgun but that doesn't mean it's not romantic. It just has to be done my way and I think people want me to do it my way."
