The Pulp Fiction director admits several of his favourite actors hail from the U.K. and dreams of one day recruiting them to shoot a film on British soil.

He explains, "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.

Tarantino admits 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.".
