Quentin Tarantino Teases Third Film in “Rewritten History” Trilogy

With 2012’s Django Unchained, writer/director Quentin Tarantino once again focused on an important period of time in history as told through his one-of-a-kind lens.  Though we don’t yet know what subject the filmmaker will be tackling for his next project, it appears that he’s interested in once again going back in time to complete his unofficial “rewritten history” trilogy that began with Inglourious Basterds and continued with the swell Unchained.  Hit the jump to see what Tarantino had to say about the prospect of another period film by way of QT.

django-unchained-quentin-tarantino-movie-image-set-photoSpeaking during a press conference for the BAFTA winners (via Empire), Tarantino confirmed his interest in tackling another important historical touchstone:

“This [rewritten history theme] begs a trilogy, it begs to have a third movie on this theme. I haven’t decided about what yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised…”

Though this is certainly an intriguing prospect and I would be first in line for such a film, I’m not exactly getting my hopes up just yet.  It’s no secret that Tarantino loves to talk, and he’s discussed a number of future projects in the past that never came to fruition.  He teased a Vega Brothers movie in the 1990s that would feature John Travolta’s character from Pulp Fiction and Michael Madsen’s character from Reservoir Dogs, and after talking up a third Kill Bill movie for years, he recently admitted that the sequel is unlikely to happen.

Tarantino has long talked about wanting to put together a 1920s gangster film, and he recently discussed a project called Killer Crow that grew out of his miniseries-length script for Basterds, which would focus on a group of black soldiers who go AWOL in 1944 after the invasion of Normandy.  In short, at any given time Tarantino has a number of ideas for future films in his head, so who knows which ones will eventually get made and which ones are destined to linger in the “what could have been” file.  The guy has never made a bad movie, so whatever genre or time period QT settles on for his next film, it’s safe to say we’ll be in for a treat.
