Quentin Tarantino is already planning his next movie, which might be a spin-off to his World War II flick Inglorious Basterds.
During his lengthy interview with writer, critic, and educator Henry Louis Gates Jr., the director said Django Unchained was the second part of a trilogy based on events in American history. According to Worst Previews, Tarantino said the third installment will likely be an Inglourious Basterds spin-off.
The acclaimed filmmaker explained:
“My original idea for ‘Inglourious Basterds’ 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. They had been f**ked over by the American military and kind of go [crazy]. The way Lt. Aldo Raines 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.”
Indiewire reports that Quentin Tarantino plans to name the movie Killer Crow. The film will be set in 1944 after the Normandy invasion. Rumor has it Brad Pitt and the Basterds may return for the outing.
“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. That would be the third of the trilogy. It would be [connected to] ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ too, because ‘Inglourious Basterds’ are in it, but it is about the soldiers. It would be called ‘Killer Crow’ or something like that.”
If you’re looking forward to Quentin Tarantino’s World War II flick, then you may have to wait a while. According to MTV News, the director’s next project is supposedly a 1930s gangster film in the same vein as Pretty Boy Floyd. As fans of the filmmaker well know, determining where he’s headed next is always hard to pin down.
