Quentin Tarantino talks Inglourious Basterds spin-off Killer Crow

With Django Unchained set to hit UK screens in a matter of weeks, Quentin Tarantino has been talking about another period drama he’s got on the boil, in the form of Inglourious Basterds spin-off, Killer Crow .

“My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when,” explains QT, “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 fucked over by the American military and kind of go apeshit.”

“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. So that was always going to be part of it, and I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big 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…That would be the third of the trilogy. It would be called Killer Crow or something like that.”

Meanwhile, the next part of the “trilogy”, Django Unchained , will be arriving in UK cinemas on 18 January 2013.
