Quentin Tarantino Planning Django Unchained And inglourious Basterds Spin-Off, Killer Crow

It’s safe to say Quentin Tarantino isn’t a fan of John Ford, and it all seems to hinge on just one of his film making decisions. An acting one, in fact. The decision to play a Klansman in DW Griffith’s hideously racist Birth of a Nation.

I recommend listening to the new podcast with Tarantino at The Root (via Movieline) where he discusses his feelings towards Ford at length.

Amongst the other topics up for discussion are a proposed third part to a trilogy Tarantino says was started by Inglourious Basterds and continued with Django Unchained. This fits my news mandate, so I’ll pass on the details here.

I don’t know exactly when I’m going to do it, but there’s something about this that would suggest a trilogy.  [The next part would follow] a bunch of black troops, and they had been f–ked over by the American military and kind of go apeshit… [The] black troops… kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland.

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… [It would be set] in ’44. It would be after Normandy.

Tarantino has promised any number of spin-offs and side projects over the years from The Vega Brothers to Kill Bill Part 3, and as yet, not a single one has materialised. Indeed, he’s not yet delivered Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair as a wide release and that’s all but finished.

It seems we’re at the mercy of his passions, and the projects that get done are the ones that fire him up the most. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
