Could there be a possible Inglourious Basterds trilogy? Maybe. While doing press for Django Unchained, director Quentin Tarantino spilled plans for a future project titled Killer Crow.
More specifically, it would be an Inglourious Basterds spin-off set in 1944 after Normandy, and would continue his Django trend of telling black and white issues.
“I don’t know exactly when I’m going to do it, but there’s something about this that would suggest a trilogy,” Tarantino told Salon.
“My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when, was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f–ked over by the American military and kind of go apes–t.”
The filmmaker continued, “They basically — the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an “Apache resistance” — [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland.”
The idea originated as a miniseries, with that as one of the storylines. “When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It’s ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.”
