Coens to make spaghetti western?

from imdb:

Coen Brothers to Make Spaghetti Western
Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen are set to make their goriest film ever - a Spaghetti Western featuring scenes of primitive torture methods. The brothers, whose notoriously gory new film No Country for Old Men has been tipped for Oscar glory, are desperate to make a film about the days of cowboys and Indians battling it out in the Wild West of America. But - as Joel warns - it won't be one for the faint-hearted. He says, "We've written a western with a lot of violence in it. There's scalping and hanging ... it's good. Indians torturing people with ants, cutting their eyelids off." Ethan adds, "It's a proper western, a real western, set in the 1870s. It's got a scene that no one will ever forget because of one particular chicken."

I hope this happens. Though looking at their imdb page, the earliest this would come out would be 2010. But I think it'll be worth the wait.

Despite the headline, I see nothing about that film that would qualify it as a "spaghetti" western. But it's hard to expect anything of substance from an imdb "reporter".

I don't care what they want to call it, that description sounds fucking badass. Period.

The Coen's are known for telling inside jokes, so I wouldn't take what they say as gospel. The description sounds like a typical Coen's joke to me... even if they are actually making a western.

I don't get the reference to a spaghetti western though.
