Quentin Tarantino Teases a DJANGO/BASTERDS Trilogy
Quentin Tarantino has done one hell of a job at putting his own unique twist on history in his last two films, Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds. After accepting the BAFTA for Best Original Screenplay earlier tonight, Tarantino teased the possibility of a third film to go along with his “Rewritten History” theme. Tarantino was sure to keep details to a minimum, so there’s no definitive information on what another film could be about. All that can be said is that any time Tarantino gets his hands on something, it’s sure to be unforgettable. Hit the jump to read more.
During the BAFTA Winner’s Press Conference, Tarantino was asked whether or not he was planning on giving audiences another piece of Tarantino-esque history (Quote via Empire Magazine):
“This [rewritten history theme] begs a trilogy, it begs to have a third movie on this theme. I haven’t decided about what yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised…”
It has been rumored for quite some time that Tarantino had been planning a trilogy involving Django and Basterds. I thought that Django was arguably the best film of 2012 – you can read my review here – so naturally any news regarding Tarantino’s next film is exciting for me, as I’m sure it is for many fans.
Tarantino has discussed the possibility of another project, titled Killer Crow, which apparently is an extension of his original Basterds script – for those of you who don’t know, Basterds was almost turned into a miniseries. Killer Crow would center upon a group of black soldiers who go AWOL after the invasion of Normandy. It was also rumored that Tarantino had been planning a third installment in Kill Bill, but that’s very unlikely at this point.
Hopefully more information on this comes out soon! I’ll be sure to stay on top of it.
