Quentin Tarantino might be developing a secret trilogy at the moment. In anticipation of the release of his latest work "Django Unchained", the Oscar winner dropped an intriguing hint that he's possibly making an unofficial trilogy in which "Django" became the second chapter.
Speaking to Total Film, Tarantino, who was named Director of Our Lifetime in the 200th issue of the movie magazine, teased that the said trilogy had already begun since 2009's "Inglourious Basterds". He dished, "I don't know, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy."
Though "Django" and "Basterds" had quite different plots, Tarantino hinted that the two movies might be related to each other and he would continue to make the third movie to conclude the 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," so he said without revealing further details of his planned trilogy.
To arrive in the U.S. cinemas on December 25, "Django" centers on a freed slave who, under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter King Schultz, becomes a bad-ass bounty hunter himself. After assisting Schultz in taking down some bad guys for profit, he tracks down his slave wife and liberates her from an evil plantation owner Calvin Candie.
Such actors as Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington and Jonah Hill are all lining up to support the movie. As for its predecessor "Inglourious Basterds", the 2009 hit movie also starred Waltz in addition to Melanie Laurent, Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Eli Roth and Michael Fassbender. The film successfully took in $320,3 million worldwide.
