Quentin Tarantino plans 'Inglorious Basterds', 'Django Unchained' history trilogy with third film
Director wants to join the films together in a 're-written history' trilogy
Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he plans to join Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained together under a "rewritten history" trilogy by making a third film in the series.
The director, who won Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained at last night's BAFTAs in London, told assembled journalists at the award ceremony that the films "beg" to be part of a trilogy, according to Empire.
This (rewritten history theme) begs a trilogy, it begs to have a third movie on this theme. I haven’t decided about what yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised…
Django Unchained, Tarantino's first since 2009's World War II movie Inglourious Basterds, is a Western set in the American South during the 1800s.
The film stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a freed slave who teams up with a bounty hunter, played by Christoph Waltz, in a bid to hunt down Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and free his enslaved wife from the murderous plantation owner.
Django Unchained is in UK cinemas now and you can watch the trailer below.
