Quentin Tarantino To Make Another Western, But Not a Django Sequel or Reboot

It’s one of the most enduring questions in cinema: what will Quentin Tarantino’s next film be about? And having enjoyed the process of making Django Unchained and teaching himself the art of the western, the legendary auteur is planning on sticking to the genre, but it’s not going to be a sequel.

"I can't talk that much about it, but I will say one thing. I haven't told anyone about this publicly, but I will say the genre. It's a western,” Tarantino told Jay Leno on Tonight Show. “It's not a Django sequel, but it's another Western. I had so much fun doing Django and I love westerns so much, that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like 'OK, now let me make another one now that I know what I'm doing.'" (Guardian)

Despite being one of the most controversial films of the year, especially because of its cavalier use of the ‘N-word’, Django Unchained was named as Best Screenplay at the Academy Awards, with Christoph Waltz grabbing the Best Supporting Actor award.

Tarantino has already hinted that, alongside Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained would be part of an ‘alternative history’ trilogy – but will his next film, which we now know will be a Western, fit into that mould? Perhaps a civil war epic with that special Quentin twist would be fun.

"When I make a film I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit. I just do it my way. I make my own little Quentin versions of them... I consider myself a student of cinema,” Tarantino explained at a South Korean film festival last month. “It's almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema and the day I die is the day I graduate. It is a lifelong study." He added that he couldn't make a serial killer movie because it would "reveal my sickness far too much."
