It sounds like Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds could be connected to each other and might end up being two-thirds of a trilogy. Here's what the director had to say in a recent interview with Total Film,
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.
For those of you who enjoy watching Tarantino's films you know he likes to have fun connecting things when he finds an opportunity. You can read about how his Inglourious Basterds movie fits in with some of his other films in a previous article we posted here.
I do love how Tarantino is changing history in his movies, and there's a strong possibility that his third film in the trilogy could be a 1930's gangster film that he's talked about doing in the past. It seems like it would fit the last couple of period films that he's made recently.
Nothing is set in stone, as he just calls it a possibility, but it's something I could see him actually following through with. Makes me wonder if he plans on casting Christoph Waltz again to play a role in whatever film he comes up with to conclude this trilogy he mentioned.
What do you think about Tarantino's concept of turning this into a loosely tied together trilogy?
