Tarantino To Make A Trilogy Out Of Basterds & Django?


So, if you’ve been living under a rock you probably haven’t noticed that Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film Django Unchained saw release on Christmas Day. Sean and I both reviewed it and absolutely loved it. It’s my absolute favorite film of 2012 to be exact.

If you haven’t seen it yet you probably should and quickly, so we can continue discussing it and other Tarantino projects without spoiling things.

One bit of interesting news regarding the film (and also his previous film Inglourious Basterds) came out of Tarantino’s mouth when he was doing some press for Django:

“My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f–ked over by the American military and kind of go apes–t. They basically — the way Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an ‘Apache resistance’ — [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland.

So that was always going to be part of it. And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It’s ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.”

This would propose a trilogy of films, with Killer Crow being the third finale that would tie-in more so with Basterds than Django.

I’d love it, because knowing that he already wrote most of it would mean a shorter turnaround between shooting and releasing it. I’ve learned to become patient with Tarantino, because it’s always worth the wait, but just the thought of seeing something from him within the next year or two gives me chills.

Have you seen Django yet? Ready for another Tarantino film?
