Tarantino Plans Third Rewritten History Film After Django, Basterds
Quentin Tarantino has admitted he wants to do a trilogy of films that rechart history based on some great injustices — and after the success of Inglorious Basterds, which was a Nazi revenge flick, and Django Unchained, which tackled the slavery narrative, it seems like a pretty good bet to add to the series.
Tarantino’s rewritten history films have received mostly acclaim but some criticism for the sensitive subject matter as well as how it is handled in the movies — but both Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds ultimately were well-rated and enjoyed by audiences both in and outside the groups represented in the works.
Quentin disclosed his potential third rewritten history film to join Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained speaking to press after a Sunday night BAFTAs win. The filmmaker explains that the two films feel a bit incomplete without a third — but Tarantino didn’t say what historical injustices he’d consider tackling for such a project.
“The director, who won Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained at last night’s BAFTAs in London, told assembled journalists at the award ceremony that the films “beg” to be part of a trilogy, according to Empire.”
The UK’s Guardian quotes Tarantino as musing over the possibility of a third movie, and the Hollywood heavyweight admitted:
“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.”
What historical period do you think Quentin Tarantino should tackle after WWII in Inglorious Bastards and the Civil War in Django Unchained?
