If you’re a big fan of director Quentin Tarantino‘s last two films, Inglourious Basterds and the recently released Django Unchained, you may be in luck.
As it turns out, Tarantino had much bigger plans for Basterds, much of which he had to trim away to get to the final film we saw. Because of this, we might just end up getting another movie from the director titled Killer Crow, which would create a loose alternate history trilogy along with Basterds and Django.
Continue reading to find out what the potential new movie would be about.
Speaking to The Root, Tarantino described the project, saying:
I don’t know exactly when I’m going to do it, but there’s something about this that would suggest a trilogy. 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.
Tarantino says the movie would take place after Normandy in 1944.
Also worth keeping in mind is Tarantino’s recent comments on his plans to retire soon, possibly around when he hits his 10th film.
What do you think about a possible third alternate history movie titled Killer Crow? Are you less excited knowing it’d be one of the director’s last works instead of something more original?
