Tarantino, Muppets, & the Wizard of Oz

In another stroke of Hollywood moviemaking genius, Quentin Tarantino (the director behind "Pulp Fiction" and "Kill Bill"), will play himself in a Muppets version of "The Wizard of Oz".

R&B singer Ashanti (whoever that is) plays Dorothy, who is wisked to Oz in a tornado. There, she meets the Munchkins (played by the Muppet rats), the Scarecrow (Kermit the Frog), the Tin Man (Gonzo) and the Lion (Fozzie). The group's quest to get the Wicked Witch (Miss Piggy) culminates with a fight scene between Dorothy and the witch.

The film cuts to Tarantino pitching to Kermit how the scene should be done.

Quentin Tarantino. In a Muppet movie. Giving feedback on a fight scene.

Maybe he'll recommend they have swords hack off the puppets' heads, and along with them the puppeteers' hands in a shower of blood. Wouldn't that be funny for the parents who bring the kids to the movie??
