We told you back in late October about Tarantino talking about a new trilogy of films that kicked off with INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. “I don’t know” he explained, “Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy. 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.” Well, sounds like he is on his way to figuring that third film out according to a new interview he gave The Root. Before you read the quotes though, pop a grain of salt in your mouth. QT has a mind that moves faster than a marathon runner on crack and he is always spitting out ideas and potential projects, so while this sounds cool don’t go falling in love just yet (however hard it may be). Here’s what QT had to say:


“My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f–ked over by the American military and kind of go apes–t. They basically — the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an “Apache resistance” — [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.

So that was always going to be part of it. And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It’s ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it…That would be the third of the trilogy. 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.”


How fucking cool would that be to have The Basterds back in a story but using them as bit players? Anyway, we’ll give you more information as we get it.

    Since this new Tarantino project is part of both INGLORIOUS BASTERDS an DJANGO UNCHAINED,maybe one of the black soldiers is related to Jamie Foxx’s Django(for this to fit in as a trilogy),for let’s see if Tarantino does actually make this one as his next film(or if it goes into the pile of unmade projects that he frequently announces,but are never made[ala Guillermo del Toro]).

    Pulp Fiction is a movie that there is a lot of sequel talk about Vega Bros, Tales from the Wolfe(could be good), Raven McCoy and the Fox Force Five(is Travolta and Madsen are too old to be the Vega Bros Uma would be unrilaistec) But all of these ideas are tired, uninspired, and novel.The only idea that seems like it could work is not a Pulp Fiction sequel but a Jules Winfield movie. You know, walk the earth, meet people get into adventures. You know, like Caine from Kung Fu.It could be a Kung Fu/Django spaghetti western/film noir/blaxploitaion clusterfuck masterpiece. If he could do this movie right there would be no Pulp Fiction. There would be no Kill Bill. No Reservoir Dogs. Only Jules Winfield. It would be his opus.If anybody else thinks this, comment and comment often. Maybe someone high up could hear about this and give the news to QT himself. And maybe he would give the idea a chance.
