It’s relatively common knowledge that Quentin Tarantino got his start as a writer before he became the auteur that we all know and love today, writing True Romance before his breakthrough debut as a writer and director with Reservoir Dogs. But there was something else that Tarantino almost wrote that would have changed the completion of a certain horror franchise.
Quentin Tarantino almost wrote Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers. Miramax offered Tarantino the writing gig but he declined. But he did for a second ponder the big question that was on everyone’s lips; Who Was the Man In Black?
When asked about it, he had this to say:
“Yeah, yeah, well, way before I’d ever done anything… it would have been if I had done it — I never got hired — but it would have been my job to figure out who the guy in the boots is,” he added; “And so the only thing that I had in my mind — I still hadn’t figured out who that dude was — was like the first 20 minutes would have been the Lee Van Cleef dude and Michael Myers on the highway, on the road, and they stop at coffee shops and shit and wherever Michael Myers stops, he kills everybody. So, they’re like leaving a trail of bodies on Route 66.”
