Speaking after winning his BAFTA for best Original Screenplay, Quentin Tarantino has revealed that after Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained that another piece of rewritten QT history is very much on the cards.
Answering a question in the BAFTA Winners Press Conference on whether he was planning another piece of QT-ified history, the multi-award winner was keen to not give any details on just what it was going to be, but was happy to hint at another little piece of history repeating.
"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…"
Despite the lack of details, definitely file this one under "very exciting indeed". But if you're looking for one certain thing here, it's that with two BAFTAs for Best Supporting Actor on his mantlepiece that Christoph Waltz will be part of the audition process...
Django Unchained is out now.
Plus, as a extra bonus for you, here's an excerpt from a deleted scene which QT acted out in the press conference. It explains just how his character in the film -- an enfranchised worker from Australia -- ended up in America. Needless to say, all of his dialogue was recreated in the appropriately broad Aussie accent heard from him in the film itself.
Django: How much you get paid? You work for the The LeQuint Dickey Mining Co., don’t you?
The LeQuint Dickey Mining Co. Employee: Now look, Blackie doesn’t work like that. He paid for our passage from Australia to here, we get a little bit of money, we pay him a bit back for the trip.
Django: How long have you been working for him?
The LeQuint Dickey Mining Co. Employee: About three years.
Django: And you haven’t paid the man YET!?
The LeQuint Dickey Mining Co. Employee: Nah, not yet…
