Some directors line up new projects while they’re still working on current ones, but Quentin Taratino takes his time. While he’s been on a rate of about one film every three years since his six year hiatus between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill, the wait is till unbearable. It’s been a year since Django Unchained, and Tarantino is still toying with what he’ll do next. It could be Killer Crow, which might be the conclusion of a “Rewritten History” trilogy following Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. However, a few weeks ago he said his next movie will be another western, although it’s not a sequel to Django Unchained. Whatever he settles on, it will probably never be Kill Bill: Vol. 3. In an interview with The Independent, Tarantino says “I don’t think about Kill Bill 3 that much.”
Hit the jump for more including why Tarantino decided he changed his mind about quitting directing.
Tarantino explained to So Film [via The Independent] that “10” was a bit of an arbitrary number, and why he decided to keep directing:
“OK, it would sound really cool because it’s a round number and it would make sense as I would have made three movies per decade, but it’s not fixed in time. I still have some more things to do before being done with movies.”
While it’s still a bit of a bummer that he’s planning to quit at some point, there’s nothing wrong with wanting go out on top. For me, Tarantino is 8-for-8 on his features, which is especially remarkable when you consider that his talent never dropped off after Pulp Fiction. Whatever he decides to do, I’ll be excited even though it’s currently a mystery. It might be Killer Crow, it might be another western, “or,” says Tarantino, “a horror movie, perhaps.”
