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

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist November 27, 2013 at 9:02AM

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 Wolf" 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.

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.
