Quentin Tarantino Reveals He's Writing A Western
But not a Django Unchained sequel...

If you were wondering what Quentin Tarantino might do for his next trick following Django Unchained, here's the answer. The writer-director went on the Jay Leno show last night to pimp the graphic novel of Django and – as related by The Hollywood Reporter – announced what he’s working on.

"I haven't told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: it's a western," Tarantino said, though he followed that up by saying it wouldn’t be a sequel to Django. "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! Let me make another one now that I know what I'm doing.'”

Of course, QT being QT, he didn’t elaborate any further, so we don’t know where the film will be set or what will actually happen in it, but it’s fun to speculate what his next, properly, bullet-strewn outing will be.

And if you were hoping for more Kill Bill? We’re sorry, but it appears you’re going to have to keep on waiting… Unless it’s a radical genre shift? We’d watch that.

Sure those two films are over-long, flawed, don't go in the direction one was expecting but that's why I like them so much. And the casting choices he makes are top-notch as well, everyone saw Pitt in Inglorious and initially thought he would be a proper hero but the focus r More
