Quentin Tarantino Says He's Doing A Western Next, But It's Not A 'Django Unchained' Sequel

Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino

Even though he doesn't have a movie to promote, Quentin Tarantino has been out and about this fall. He hit a number of film festivals including Busan, Lumiere and A.F.I., pontificated on a number of movies (naming Israeli thriller "Big Bad Wolves" as one of year's best, criticizing "The Lone Ranger" and dropping his own (early) top ten of 2013) and last night, he went into Thanksgiving with a stop on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" where he was promoting the recently published "Django Unchained" graphic novel. And the ever chatty helmer had some news to share.

While he didn't go into specifics, Tarantino revealed to Leno that his next script is a western, but "it's not a 'Django' sequel." Basically, Tarantino explains that he had such a fun time making his first western with "Django Unchained" that he wants to do it again. "I love westerns so much, after I taught myself to make one, it's like 'Now let me make another one, now I know what I'm doing.' " So what could this project be?

Well, the door is wide open as Tarantino is good at talking a lot but revealing little. "I'd like to do a couple more, dealing with the same issue: but different story, different characters," he said about doing movies in the genre last year. So with that in mind, maybe he's penned his once talked about John Brown slavery biopic about the abolitionist who tried to lead a slave revolt in 1859? Just a wild guess, but like "Django Unchained," that grew out of a few ideas—"the Southern" movie/ "southern," Klux Klux Klan revenge tale—that he cobbled together into something new. And we'd reckon he'll do the same here.

So, something to contemplate for now, but it seems Quentin Tarantino won't be waiting too long to get his next movie mounted. Check out his talk with Jay Leno below.

    Let me guess, with Fred Dryer, Eric Roberts, Dean Cain, Treat Williams, Lee Majors, Don Johnson, Gil Gerard, Mr T, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Boxleitner, Luke Goss, Fiddy Cent, the guys from Dukes of Hazzard, the guys from Chips, ect, ect, ect, ect, ad nauseum.
    Please God, no.....unless, Bill Shatner - the one true God - is in it also.
    And The Hoff.

    Big mistake, in my opinion. If you look back at his filmography, he has never repeated himself. Reservoir Dogs its THE cult movie, Pulp Fiction is Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown is an underrated masterpiece with Jackson, DeNiro, Grier, the good guy and Keaton at his best, Kill Bill 1 is a masterpiece of narrative and culture mix, Kill Bill 2 is probably the most overrated of his but has an incredibly ending, and then his KIND of failure was Death Proof, which still didnt know its actual cut and has a great OST.
    After all this, many directors would have started to decay. But the guy goes and makes Inglorius Basterds, who gets better every new viewing. And its probably a masterpiece. And then he FAILS the greatest cool way with Django, which is his suicide movie. Despite all, a great film with one bad guy for the ages and a some unforgivable scenes (shame on the ending, with Django dressed as Candie) plus a novel-esque style.
    In my opinion, with his last two movies QT was making a statement of XXth history in his unique way (despite the second one taking place earlier). And I gut there's a third one missing here. Dont know if it is and anti-biopic of the musical industry (the Coens have just made it maybe with his last flick) or a spy movie, or what. But I dwant a third one of that kind as I think a new Western would be repiting himself (something hes not willing to do, according to an interview he gave last year).
    But who knows. Maybe we all have a point of no return.

    Donella, I think you meant the Proposition, which definitely didn't star Russell Crowe.

    Sal, 'Last real Aussie Western was about 25 years ago with Tom Selleck's Quigley Down Under.' See above.

    I liked Guy Pierce and Russell Crowe in The Proposal

    Perhaps an Aussie Western?
    He's a fan of OZ expoitation film and the directors of the day.
    Last real Aussie Western was about 25 years ago with Tom Selleck's Quigley Down Under.
    Red Hill was cool, though.
    Might give Worthington something better to chew on, that what he is doing now.
    He could be a horse or an Indian or a cactus.
    Do they have cactus in Australian deserts?

    This is cool, but I really want to see him make "Killer Crow."
