Hollywood filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is desperate to make a movie in England so that he can work with British actors like Sir Anthony Hopkins and Kate Winslet.
The Pulp Fiction director admits several of his favourite actors hail from Britain and dreams of recruiting them to shoot a film on British soil, reports imdb.com.
"I love England. It would be a wonderful life experience to have an excuse to work here for six or nine months...
"I am a huge fan of Simon Pegg, so I would definitely love to work with him. I also think Kate Winslet is one of the best actresses that ever lived, so I would be honoured to work with her. I am also a huge admirer of Anthony Hopkins. I would also love to work with Michael Caine. I can see them appearing in my movies, it just has to be right," he said.
Tarantino says he already has a potential project in mind - an adaptation of thriller writer Len Deighton's spy novels.
"One of the things I enjoy musing about doing is the trilogy of Len Deighton books, Berlin Game, Mexico Set and London Match. The story takes place in the Cold War and follows a spy named Bernard Samson. What is attractive is the really great characters and the wonderful opportunities of British and German casting," he said.
