Quentin Tarantino Says INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and DJANGO UNCHAINED May Be Part of a Trilogy

     October 29, 2012


It’s no secret that many of writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s films are interconnected.  John Travolta’s character in Pulp Fiction is the brother of Michael Madsen’s character in Reservoir Dogs, the synopsis of Kill Bill is described as a TV pilot in Pulp Fiction, and just recently we learned that Inglourious Basterds may also fit perfectly into Tarantino’s movie universe.  Now the director himself is commenting on a new connection, revealing that Basterds and the upcoming Django Unchained may eventually form 2/3 of a trilogy.  Hit the jump to see what he said.

Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a 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.”

Both films are period, stylized accounts of major events in history, so it’s not hard to see Tarantino venturing into similar territory with a further film.  Moreover, Christoph Waltz has a principal role in both Basterds and Django, so it would be fun to see him team up with Tarantino once again.

Tarantino has spoken passionately about sequels and spin-offs for many of his films in the past, but as of yet none of those have come to fruition.  As such, we shouldn’t outright expect a third installment in this possible trilogy anytime soon.  However, The Playlist notes that QT has previously mentioned a 1930s gangster film as a possible future project, so it’s conceivable that that period setting could provide Tarantino with an outlet to complete the aforementioned trilogy.  For now, we’re all just eager to see Django Unchained when the film opens on Christmas Day.
