    Hmm... probably.
    Tarantino's Gantz would be an interesting thing to see.

    It's not in the least bit Tarantino's style, he never writes younger characters, hates Supernatural plot lines, and never Directs anything he didn't write himself.
    He also hates using special effects or any kind of digital editing, so most manga would be out of the question for his style. He also has a formula of thirty minutes of dialogue for every ten minutes of action, which would not fit Gantz's plot at all, lol

    I wasn't aware of that... so I guess it really wouldn't do.
    However:

    I think that's a good formula, IMO, it'd work nicely with Gantz, with all the human drama and bla bla bla, it'd make it less of "oh, gantz is all about action" which some people think, though maybe cutting it to 20 minutes of dialogue for 10 of action might be more proper, in Gantz case.
    *sigh*
    Damn Tarantino.

    Well Gantz, thus far has only been about action.
    We are not sticking it out because the writing is good in any way. It just has good elements of a good story. But it isn't written well at all.

    Tarrantino, hypothetically speaking could probably do a few cool, and unexpected things with a story like Gantz. But ultimately, my opinion is that his "way" of doing things would get in the way of it being a good movie. (For reasons already stated)
    Is he really opposed to supernatural movies? From dusk till dawn? Grindhouse? Kill Bill? I know he acted in Dusk.

    Can we not imagine Hollywood making this movie ploz?

    It'd be an adaptation, like he did with Jackie Brown - and as already noted, he's done supernatural in writing From Dusk 'Til Dawn.

    But I agree, Tarantino would not work, he's more deliberate in his pacing. I think Gantz would need more of a visual stylist, like a Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus). It'd definitely need some hardcore groundwork on the script, though.

    Well there was nothing supernatural about Deathproof, and neither Kill Bill. Dusk Till Dawn was his go at poking fun at the entire horror genre, like how the vampires are hopelessly bad in it, and get utterly wasted by two average criminals.

    Well. Tarrantino only lasts as long as the drawn out first quart of the movie. So I wouldn't say they get wasted by two average criminals. Cloonys character had brains. The other was trigger happy. The girl and guy survive, they survive because the sun comes up.
    And define 'supernatural' in a movie sense.

    The cultivation and use of chi? By master Pai Mei?
    I merely brought up kill bill and Grindhouse to show that Tarrantino has been involved in titles with themes similar to Gantz. Or rather with supernatral themes. As loosely based as they may be.

    Ryuhei Kitamura, now that's a better director for the Gantz movie. Undeveloped Characters, Unrefined stories, and a shitty endings.

    Two peas in a pod.

    WTF have you smoked to consider that elements that make it supernatural? and I don't think chi was mentioned in the whole movie,anyway

    Not so much of what I personally have smoked, as opposed to what I have seen and concluded on.

    He was an old Chinese kung fu master. It involved Chi. If not then, what else? Not that they had to explain it.
    Tell you what. Ill hold this sword. Now you jump onto the tip of it and stay balanced. Good luck.
    Do you see what I'm trying to say?

    Admittedly the word Supernatural isnt the best group choice for chi. I was just generalising.

    Ryuhei Kitamura would make an awesome action fest for Gantz, but his films are no-brainers so when things get heavy in Gantz, tech-wise, it'll be lame (hey, like Michael Bay!!).

    I liked Casshern, who did that? I know some people panned it and it wasnt faithful to the anime at all, but he made it kinda less cheesy.

    What about the guy who did the newest Christian Bale Batman films?

    Oh, and if Tarantino did Gantz, there'd be like one hunt in the film because he'd do more off-hunt stuff, and even then - half hour to 10 minutes, times that by 6 and we're talking more than one movie just to cover from the start of the manga to where the Tanaka hunt would begin for the next part.
