Tarantino’s Next Film to Revisit WW2?


tarantinos next movie had this to say to theroot.com about his original idea for Inglourious Basterds and how it may become his next film:

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…. 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.

We’ll be there, who doesn’t love watching whitey get shot up?

    I think it’d be neat if in the year 2020 we get to see “Kill Kiddo”, where Copperhead’s daughter seeks revenge on Beatrix for killing her mom.

      @Binary Daoist and BB has to avenge the slaying of a now older mother Beatrix

      @Binary Daoist  From what I recall, Kill Bill 3 was in pre production and was supposed to star the grown up child of Black Mamba but QT gave up on it eventually. IMDB page for it looks pretty dead.

        @AnthonyLoman  @Binary Daoist that seems pretty flimsy…almost up there with the mythical Vega Brothers movie.

        @harlequincy @AnthonyLoman well logistically it’ll be easier cause they won’t have to make Uma appear younger than she actually is

    Completely fictional alternative history with a giant dose of racism?  Sounds like a real stretch for Tarantino.

    Finally I can dust off my old “Kill Whitey” T-shirt which up until now was inappropriate for white people to wear.

    I guess it’s time for Germans to be offended right?

    I wonder what Spike Lee’s opinion of this one will be ?

    i read in the early stages of Inglorious that Eddie Murphy was supposed to co-star. great if QT could revive his career with this.

    I’m more interested in the 1930s gangster movie he wants to do.

    Hopefully more Brad Pitt.  He was just terrific.

    Quentin should try for originality and develop an heroic character from the German perspective. His formula has become a bit predictable.

    Sounds like someone is enjoying Colorado’s new Law, because that looks like Pot Talk to me!?
