Film legend Quentin Tarantino has revealed he would love to make a British spy movie starring British actors.

The Inglourious Basterds director said he's a huge fan of a series of books by thriller writer Len Deighton and would like to make a movie version.

And he admitted he has a wish list of Brit actors he'd love to work with.

Tarantino said: "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 has 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.

"I love England. It would be a wonderful life experience to have an excuse to work here for six or nine months."

He added an extra insight into which books he has his eye on: "One of the things I am 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 name Bernard Samson. What is attractive is the really great characters and the wonderful opportunities of British and German casting."
