Quentin Tarantino Reveals Details on Potential New Film KILLER CROW

If you’re a fan of director Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist history films Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, you’ll be happy to hear there might be a third film in the series on the horizon. Tentatively titled Killer Crow, the film was inspired by the creative process of making Inglourious Basterds and would take place in a similar timeline: in 1944 after the Invasion of Normandy. It would center on a group of black soldiers who go AWOL. Though it’s only about half-written, Tarantino seems to have a pretty good foundation already. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

Hquentin-tarantinoere’s what Tarantino revealed about Killer Crow in a recent interview with The Root (via Empire):

“…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.”

    have someone else direct this Quentin. or better yet, actually do THE MINISERIES on HBO or AMC.

    you’ve been talking about the Prob Era Gangster movie, and that is more interesting. OR the film that i’m really interested that you once talked about was the “ROMCOM His-Girl-Friday style”. you’re probably even talking about the same film. cast Leo as the lead(using his clean leading man image that he abandoned after TITANIC, though Great Gatsby is sort of a return), and Jessica Chastain as the leading lady. do the fastest dialogue you’ve done since the opening of Pulp Fiction. and you can even have this movie in black and white. this is the kind of film we’ll love to see.

      No thanks

    • Chris

      Yeah, that sounds awful.

    • Gögi

      and make it in IMAX 3D.

  • will

    Sounds kickass. One of the characters could be a Django descendant, or something, along with the return of the Basterds.

    • smellyfishfingers

      yeah awesome idea and one of the black soldiers could be jackie browns grandad and one of the soldiers they try and kill could be bill…probably throw in orens father in some way that would be good……………….oh yeah thats right it would be terrible

      • Andrew from Troy

        Wow, you’re a fucking idiot. This is actually a great idea. Tarantino puts references between his films all the time, so this is actually very likely.

  • MidnightMax

    QT seems to currently have an obsession with killing white people- I’ll check out Django Unchained, but will steer clear of “Killer Crow”. Yes, I was hoping for a 30′s-40′s Gangster film- Why feed the obsession?

    • Muh

      Most action movies like killing white people, except those made in China, where they kill Chinese. What a stupid comment.

      • MidnightMax

        So says the obvious, ignorant and unrepentant racist who’s wholly unaware of his hypocrisy…

    • Gögi

      dont worry midnightmax, they say “nigger” and kill plenty of colored people in Django… you’ll probably like it a lot.

      • MidnightMax

        What a sad sack or repugnant naval lint you are. Please feel free to do the world a favor and stop breathing air.

        Listening to Spike Lee’s comments a couple of days ago, I could only shake my head and think, “Of all the people to have that particular complaint…” I saw “Django” today and, midway through, thought that maybe Lee had a point. Equal parts grand entertainment mixed with ill-advised excess. Christoph Waltz is worth the price of admission, though some of Tarantino’s expected Directorial flourishes are starting to wear thin. He’s apparently losing his grip on the art of subtlety. My favorite Sergio Leone Western is “Once Upon A Time In The West”- mostly because it’s his least Leone-ish Western effort… in short, Leone matured. Tarantino- it’s time to mature.

    I miss the the pre-Kill Bill days…

  • Strong Enough

    nothing can be worse than Death Proof. nothing…

    besides who doesn’t mind seeing a whole bunch of white people get shot. :)

    When I first saw that the title of this project was going to be “Killer Crow”, I thought that it was actually going to be a QT, Native American revenge movie. That would have been awesome I think.

    • Fitzy

      Yeah. That’s what I thought two. I would have loved to see that.

      • GunzOfNavarone

        two, seriously? Kill yourself.

      • John Hodgepodge

        He should definitely make “Killer Crow” a Native American revenge flick. No one else has done it. He’s tackled Hitler and the Holocaust, Slavery, and he mentioned the Native American genocide in one of his interviews while promoting “Django.” The mock up poster with Johnny Depp on it got me excited to see what Tarantino could pull off with such material including the many wars fought in America during its earliest formative years.

    Tarantino talks about sequels/spinoffs for every movie he’s ever made yet they never come to fruition. I just find it highly unlikely this will ever happen.

  • Northern Star

    Quentin Tarantino made a huge step as a mature filmmaker with ‘Jackie Brown’ but after it flopped, he seems to have reverted back to making the kind of films the audience at large EXPECT of him to make, it doesn’t mean those films aren’t great – I for one thought ‘Kill Bill Vol 2′ was superb and surprisingly mature in places – but QT doesn’t seem to be stretching his considerable talents by defying conventions and making films that have as much depth as colorful metaphors and crimson bloodletting… say what you want about the Wachowski siblings, but they always push their boundaries in their films, successful or not.

    • Strong Enough

      Bastards was a mature film. it was just very fucking violent

      • ny-key

        Mature filmmaking, not mature rating.
        B.Pitt grinning the whole movie through disposes of the large part of ‘mature’.

        Death Proof was also on the brink to became a mature intelligent, interesting film.
        Kurt Russell plot/30min car chase, that was ludicrous and annoying though.

        DP flopped on the boxoffice and Tarnatino is now making these halfassed albeit entertaining ‘epics’ I think his Killl BIll 2 will be his last oldschool small movie.

  • Ted

    Good concept, but ultimately redundant: between Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, as great as they were, he’s already done two flicks about bloody vengeance against oppressors by the oppressed, both set during historically atrocious and discriminating periods of two nations.

    As much as it would cramp his style/might cue the wrath of many Tarantinophiles, I’d like to see him do a “straight,” completely “serious” movie, preferably a drama, by him. His movies are definitely known for punchy dialogue, the aestheticization of violence, being engrained in the language of pop culture and cinema, and anachronistic soundtracks, but they’re just a frolicking, bloody good time, not exactly a dead-serious drama. What if he did a straight genre exercise, like how the Coen brothers did their take on True Grit? Maybe he’s not into that kind of stuff, but I personally think it would bring him out of his comfort zone.

  • TotesMcGotes

    I have yet to see Django Unchained (only opens January 18 here,ugh) but this seems kind of redundant. Again,black men getting revenge against whites? I’m hoping it’s just him getting overexcited again talking about his projects. If we’re talking spin-offs,I would be fine with one focusing on the Basterds.

  • Old Soldier

    Now are they going to show this “warpath” or are they going to be sitting around a table “talking” about it for two hours while playing cards, drinking another glass of your delicious milk and wondering what they call a 1/4 pounder in Switzerland? In other words, typical Tarantino movie.

    Definitely sounds Redundant. Unless Waltz is in it I will pass. It’s so funny how he really tries to hate Whitey, but Waltz is clearly the best part of his recent two movies. But then again he is do for another stinker too.

    “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”…

    Anyone remember how good Resivoir Dogs was???

    I’ve skipped his last 4 movies. Just not into his movies anymore.

    HERE’S HOW Tarantino should finish his Trilogy of Revisionism through Violence:

    Have it set during the Vietnam War, specifically the My Lai Massacre (where 500+ women, children, civilians were raped, tortured and killed by US troops for no reason).

    The protagonists: 3-4 Vietnamese rebels, and 3-4 U.S. troops who have defected (gone native) and chosen to fight with the Vietnamese, rather than partake in the massacre.

    Still give it a western motif, with a Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven feel to it. 7 rebel fighters, part Vietnamese and part US military, rescue a small village from an impending mass murder and rape of the whole town.

    Call it “The My Lai Seven” and you have your Tarantino 3-disc box set of Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, My Lai Seven.”

  • snob

    he should set it in Vietnam, with descendants of Django and the bear jew (as the only white guy) fighting in the same unit. more sympathy for the a-wall unit bailing out of a “bullshit” war rather than a “just” war. plus it just seems redundant to do ww2 again.

  • John Hodgepodge

    He should definitely make “Killer Crow” a Native American revenge flick. No one else has done it. He\’s tackled Hitler and the Holocaust, Slavery, and he mentioned the Native American genocide in one of his interviews while promoting “Django.” The mock up poster with Johnny Depp on it got me excited to see what Tarantino could pull off with such material including the many wars fought in America during its earliest formative years.

  • Joe

    Sounds just as ludicrous and awful as the rest of his filmography. The sooner Quentin learns (and accepts) that he’s NOT BLACK, the better off we all are. It must really tear him up inside that he’s white.
