Quentin Tarantino Says 'Inglourious Basterds' & 'Django Unchained' Could Be First Two Parts Of A Loose Trilogy

We're still a couple of months away from the film's release, but a recent spate of trailers have seen even those of us who were previously a little lukewarm on "Django Unchained" get a little excited. We're not 100% sold yet, but there's a swaggering confidence to what we've seen so far that makes us hopeful that we could be seeing vintage Tarantino from his racially-charged Western come Christmas Day.

We're still a couple of months away from the film's release, but a recent spate of trailers have seen even those of us who were previously a little lukewarm on "Django Unchained" get a little excited. We're not 100% sold yet, but there's a swaggering confidence to what we've seen so far that makes us hopeful that we could be seeing vintage Tarantino from his racially-charged Western come Christmas Day.

As ever, there's not been a lot of word from the director as to what might come next, but a recent interview has suggested that the director's recent output, including his last film "Django Unchained," might be of a part of a bigger whole. After being named the the director of their lifetime in the 200th issue of the UK's Total Film, Tarantino spoke to the magazine, and suggested that "Inglourious Basterds" and "Django Unchained" might form the first two parts of a trilogy.

"'Inglourious Basterds' and 'Django Unchained' bespeak a trilogy," the director says. "As different as they are, there is a companion piece quality. There might very well be a third one. I just don’t know what it is yet.” It's not too difficult to see what he's talking about, the two films being violent, stylized period pieces with a subtext of social injustice. And that's not to mention actor Christoph Waltz, who has major roles in both.

So could we see a third Waltz-starring film along similar lines down the line? Tarantino's up front about the possibility, but also that it's just that, a possibility. Could that third part turn out to be the 1930s gangster picture he's mentioned in the past? Or the Len Deighton spy adaptations he was also considering? Or is there another period of history you'd like to see Tarantino tackle in a 'Basterds'/'Django' style? We won't know for some time, but we imagine word will start to sneak out sometime after "Django Unchained" hits theaters on Christmas Day. [Total Film]
