Oscar-winning Kill Bill and Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino has his sights set on London for a new project. 

“I love London and I really want to film there,” he revealed at the 20th anniversary screening of his world famous gangster movie Pulp Fiction at the Cannes Film Festival this week.

Taratino is known for pastiching movie genres; in Kill Bill he parodies the Japanese kung fu genre, in Death Proof he celebrates grindhouse cinema, and in Django Unchained the western. And now it seems he could be considering 70s London as his next target.

"I'm really obsessed with 1970’s London,” Tarantino told The Telegraph. "Perhaps I could do a comedy there."

Tarantino is currently involved with a TV series version of his vampire movie From Dusk Till Dawn, a collaboration with director Robert Rodriguez. The series premiered in March on Netflix and follows the psychotic Gecko brothers (originally played by George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino) who rob a bank and are on the run to Mexico – where they get held up, due to some really weird supernatural stuff.
