Quentin Tarantino Says He'd "Like To Do A Couple More" Slavery/Western Films, Talks Up A '30s Gangster Movie Again

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist December 7, 2012 at 5:54PM

Quentin Tarantino isn't always the most reliable person about the films he says he will make, particularly when it comes to would-be sequels. He's talked up a "Vega Brothers" film (which will likely never see the light of day), a "Kill Bill 3" movie (which may or may not happen), and sequels and/or prequels to "Inglourious Basterds" that sounded like fun ideas at the time, but are likely never going to come to pass (remember all these abandoned projects?). But what Tarantino is very good about (and fairly reliable with) is gazing into the future and projecting what kind of genre he's going to tackle next.

Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino isn't always the most reliable person about the films he says he will make, particularly when it comes to would-be sequels. He's talked up a "Vega Brothers" film (which will likely never see the light of day), a "Kill Bill 3" movie (which may or may not happen), and sequels and/or prequels to "Inglourious Basterds" that sounded like fun ideas at the time, but are likely never going to come to pass (remember all these abandoned projects?). But what Tarantino is very good about (and fairly reliable with) is gazing into the future and projecting what kind of genre he's going to tackle next. He talked up a WWII film almost 10 years before "Inglourious Basterds" finally came to pass, and during the press rounds for that picture he kept talking up "the Southern" movie /  "southern," Klux Klux Klan revenge tale he wanted to make which eventually morphed into "Django Unchained."

In the past, Tarantino's talked up making a 1930s gangster picture, a western (which obviously also falls under "Django Unchained"), adapting Len Deighton British spy novels and a potential John Brown slavery biopic. Well, what's old is new once again. During a BAFTA members and critics screening of "Django Unchained" in the U.K. on Thursday, Tarantino said he'd like to do a few more films in the slavery/spaghetti western vein of "Django Unchained."

"I'd like to do a couple more, dealing with the same issue: but different story, different characters," he said. "I could conceive maybe someday doing a '30 gangster picture, or something like that. I could think of doing another western, actually."

And so what have we learned? Sequels? Not Tarantino's strong suit (frankly, we're fine with this). Genre ideas percolating in his mind for several years and up to a decade? Don't count them out. Truthfully, a Tarantino gangster picture set in the 1930s would likely rule. At least more so than another western/slavery film -- we've seen that from him once already now.
