Django Unchained, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has revealed his intention to make an Inglourious Basterds spinoff movie, tentatively titled Killer Crow.
In a recent interview with website The Root for his recently released, controversial western Django Unchained, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has revealed that Killer Crow would be set in 1944, around the time of the Normandy invasion.
“I don’t know exactly when I’m going to do it, but there’s something about this that would suggest a trilogy,” said Tarantino.
Killer Crow may prove to be controversial, as is Tarantino’s very un-PC description of the plot.
“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”
Tarantino then continued, “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.”
