Last month, Quentin Tarantino revealed that back in the early 90s he came close to directing a Luke Cage film, but it seems that the Marvel property isn’t the only comic book project that Tarantino has mulled over in the past, with the filmmaker telling IndieWire that he also considered helming a movie based upon DC’s Sgt. Rock.
“There is a script – I’m not going to do it – that I always really liked a lot by David Webb Peoples, who wrote the Unforgiven and Blade Runner.,” states Tarantino. “He wrote a movie version of Sgt. Rock that I always thought was really terrific. I don’t think I’m ever going to end up doing it but I really did like that script and it’s one of the few times I’ve considered doing another script.”
Sgt. Rock was created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert and made his first appearance in Our Army at War #83 back in 1959.
