Tarantino's Revisionist History Trilogy: 6 Time Periods He Could Tackle Next
Vikings, suffragettes, apaches, custard pies and Christoph Waltz casting notes

submit to reddit

 After Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s fans are crying out for a third piece of rewritten history from the walking, talking, movie-referencing man-machine. Speaking at the BAFTA’s Winners press conference recently, said this on the topic: "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…" But which time period deserves QT’s quillwork the most? Here are six suggestions, all of them slightly bonkers and a couple of them actually quite likely…

P.S. This feature is best read whilst listening to our Spotify playlist, Now That's What I Call... Quentin Tarantino!

Tarantino's Revisionist History Trilogy: 6 Time Periods He Could Tackle Next | 1. The Women’s Suffrage Movement
1. The Women’s Suffrage Movement

Title: Seneca Falls
Tagline: “Come and suffragette some!”

Susan B. Anthony (Uma Thurman) and Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Zoe Bell) team up to take down the patriarchy in this reimagining of the fight for women’s rights. In this version, the pair march from the Seneca Falls convention straight down to Washington, fighting their way past troops of pre-War soldiers armed with naught but a bayonet and a horseshoe on a string. Oh, and Samuel L. Jackson’s Frederick Douglass to help them. In a stirring finale, they kill evil rapist President James K. Polk (Leonardo DiCaprio) (note: not actually evil or a rapist in the historical record) and castrate most of Congress. But seriously, folks: having tackled slavery and the Holocaust, it’s not too big a stretch to imagine Tarantino – who has always fetishized strong women, albeit especially their feet – tackling women’s lib. Just to find a use for the line I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar if for no other reason.

Tarantino cameo: A washed-up Aussie drunk who shouts abuse at Our Heroines in the streets of Seneca Falls.

Christoph Waltz role: The kindly Henry Stanton, who supports Cady Stanton in her struggle.

1 RE: Purposefully silly?
L: Jimmyduudah More like complete bollocks. By all means have a light hearted look at silly ideas for Tarantino movies but next time make it funny? This is just a half assed attempt at being funny. Do not ever write a comedy whoever wrote this rubbish. hat the hell's wrong with you? More

You know these 'pitches' are purposely silly, right? As in, not serious? As in, “Come and suffragette some!” How can you be taking this so seriously? Unbunch thine panties, mister. More

No credit to Charlie Brooker for the suffrage example? More

the worst article I've ever seen in Empire magazine to date. Thank god Tarantino comes up with far better ideas than this horse crap. What were the editors thinking allowing this to be published?.... More

9 another thing...
Tarantino could have the Hessian officer played by Waltz be an ancestor of Landas...hence why Landa asked for a property on Nantucket island following his release by the Basterds More

I freakin' hope it's a '30s gangster flick. That would be all sorts of special. More

11 American Revolution for me
Although in terms of the Waltz role, would it not make sense that he be an officer in the Hessian army - who fought alongside the British (or as part of the British army? I can never remember) during the revolution? Besides, he's already done a pretty good job of playing a German army officer before... More
