Director Quentin Tarantino is already talking about his follow-up to Django Unchained, which could finish the director’s revenge trilogy.
In an interview with The Root, the Oscar winner discussed a subplot for 2009’s Inglourious Basterds that was never made that involved African American soldiers during World War II. He suggested that this could be the launching point for another film, which might be titled Killer Crow.
These soldiers “had been f--ked over by the American military and kind of go apes--t.” He adds, 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.”
He explained that the original idea might have been turned into a TV series, but now he’s toying with the idea of turning it into a movie. “I have most of that written. It's ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.”
The Pulp Fiction director agreed that it would be the last part of a “revenge trilogy,” which would include Basterds and Django. “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.”
However, Cinema Blond notes that Tarantino is notorious for talking about projects that never get off the ground. He’s mentioned a Vega Brothers film and a possible Kill Bill, Vol. 3, neither of which have been made yet. So, while Killer Crow could become his next movie, nothing is confirmed until production starts.
Tarantino fans would also say that he has already made a revenge trilogy. After all, the Kill Bill films center on a quest for revenge.
