After marrying an Israeli, Quentin Tarantino has suggested he could feature one in one of his coming films.

Speaking at the Rome Film Festival this week, the American director said his future plans include a film criticism book and potential television series, “but first I want to make a comedy.”

Tarantino also gave a few details about an unspecified project he was planning.

“It’s not like my next movie. It’s a piece of something else that I’m thinking about doing — and I’m not going to describe what it is,” he told Italy’s state broadcaster, according to Variety. “But part of this thing, there is supposed to be a Spaghetti Western in it.”

Tarantino said the movie was “going to be really fun” and that he looked forward to filming it.

“I want to shoot it in the Spaghetti Western style where everybody’s speaking a different language,” he said.

He added: “The Mexican Bandido is an Italian. The hero is an American. The bad sheriff is a German. The Mexican saloon girl is Israeli. And everybody is speaking a different language.”

Tarantino, who is married to model and singer Daniella Pick and who in recent years has spent long stretches of time in Israel, did not indicate who he could cast for the part of the Israeli.
