It would certainly shake, if not stir, the James Bond franchise to its core.

What if Quentin Tarantino were to direct the next 007 movie? That's exactly the question that came up at a 25-year anniversary screening of "Reservoir Dogs" this weekend. And it turns out, his friends all want him to do it.

"What fun that would be and we would all be lining up for that one," Tim Roth, who played Mr Orange in the cult classic, told an audience in Los Angeles, adding that it would not only be the "goriest" movie of Bond's 55-year history, but, "it would also probably be the wittiest."

Asked if he would sign up for a villain's role in a film under Tarantino, he said: "Oh yeah, I would love to do that."

Michael Madsen, who worked with Tarantino on "Kill Bill" in 2003 and appeared in the 2004's "Die Another Day," chipped in: 'He would be good. I have got to make friends with Daniel Craig so I can get in it.'

Django Unchained star Walter Goggins wanted the world to know what he thought Tarantino would offer a Bond movie: "So often Quentin is not given credit for how important he is visually as a filmmaker. He invented his own language. No one writes like he does. It is always magic."

They made the comments during a 25th anniversary screening of his iconic 1991 crime caper at the Sundance Next Fest in Los Angeles, where the director scooped an Institute Vanguard Leadership Award.

Tarantino himself remained tight lipped on all things Bond, but also appeared flustered when asked about his next movie – reported to be about the Charles Manson murders that shook the world in 1969.

"It's being misrepresented as a Manson film – that is all I can say," he told the New York Daily News.
