We have already known for quite a while that Quentin Tarantino is planning a prequel for his masterfully brilliant World War II flick Inglorious Bastards. He already revealed back in May that the had half of the prequel already written, and a few months later, the producer of Inglorious Bastards Harvey Weinstein talked about the possibility of another film. Regarding the Bastards prequel, Tarantino said that he has got 40 pages of it written, so not quite halfway as he said before, unless the runtime comes in at under an hour and a half. Tarantino is not giving any details about what the prequel may be about, although if you have been paying attention to the rumours surrounding the prequel, you may guess the plot of the movie. It could be a storyline about a group of African American soldiers behind the enemy lines.
There is no more information on the prequel for the time being. However, Quentin reveals it is going to be smaller and less epic in scale than the Bastards and will take on a completely different genre. He says he could finish it in about a five to six month period of intensive writing, which probably means we will not see it for quite a while. Tarantino is very secretive regarding his future project. We, as viewers, can only assume that it will be different from what we have seen before.
Until he releases the trailer for the prequel, Quentin Tarantino will release his latest film in December. Amidst a sea of prestigious musicals, 3D classic American literature adaptations, Tom Cruise thrillers and a return trip to Middle earth, there is one film due to hot theatres this December that stands out as genuinely original, yet also firmly rooted in film history, Tarantino’s southern fried Spaghetti western homage, Django Unchained.
The official Django Unchained teaser poster unveiled in early April provided a small taste of the remixed retro flavour that is specific to Pulp Fiction. This new movie is expected to have the Tarantino trademark in terms of plot, customary literary dialogue, stylistic imitations of classic film making techniques, colorful variations on familiar character types and a chapter oriented storyline that jumps back and forth in time. In other words, this new movie will be one characteristic to Tarantino’s style.
