Tarantino: Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained part of a trilogy


Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino has suggested Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained are the first two parts of a trilogy.

The 49-year-old director, who has made his admiration for Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Western trilogy well-known, suggested there will be another film to follow on from the 2009 war movie and the forthcoming western movie because he regards them as possessing a “companion piece quality”, despite their obvious differences.

He told Total Film magazine: “Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy.

“As different as they are, there is a companion piece quality. There might very well be a third one. I just don’t know what it is yet.”

Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained will also see the return to the big screen of the director himself, after Tarantino decided to write a small part for him to act. The director starred in Death Proof and Reservoir Dogs, which he directed, as well as the Robert Rodriguez films From Dusk Till Dawn and Desperado.

Actor Rex Linn, who stars in the film, said: “Quentin told me that he liked the scene so much he wanted to be in it, too, and that he would also be taking some of my lines.

“So, you’ll know the scenes when you see them. We’ll be on the screen with Don Johnson and Jonah Hill. The scenes may not be long, but you will remember them.”

Django Unchained is released on 23 January 2013.
