Quentin Tarantino Reveals That His Next Film Will Be Another Western

November 27, 2013

Quentin Tarantino

Following the great success of Django Unchained, director Quentin Tarantino is ready for his next film. After naming The Lone Ranger as one of his 10 favorite films of 2013, the director is ready to head back into the western genre. While appearing on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, Tarantino was promoting a recently published graphic novel version of the Best Picture nominated western of 2012. However, for those hoping that this next film will be a sequel to Django Unchained, the director has already said that's not the case. At the same time, Tarantino didn't offer any details other than the genre of his latest film. Read on!

Here are the clips of Quentin Tarantino on "The Tonight Show" courtesy of NBC:

If you don't have time to watch the interviews above, Tarantino explains, "I love westerns so much, after I taught myself to make one, it's like 'Now let me make another one, now I know what I'm doing.'" The Playlist points out that Tarantino previous said, "I'd like to do a couple more, dealing with the same issue: but different story, different characters." So they hypothesize that he might take on his once proposed film about John Brown, the abolitionist who tried to lead a slave revolt in 1859. This is all speculation, but the thought of Tarantino heading back to the west is pretty enticing. Sound good?

    How could a new Tarantino film NOT sound good? :)

    I love Tarantino and Westerns, but I feel like anything involving a slave revolt could seem too similar to Django. I'd rather see something more unique. A QT Sci-Fi would be my dream scenario. Ever since reading about his ideas for Casino Royale, I'd love to see him tackle a 007 style spy movie period piece.
    • OfficialJab
      Just give him the next 007. That franchise is beginning to get too big for its britches, it could use something with some zany flair.

        what are you talking about, the last bond was a triumphant return to form. Not to say i wouldnt enjoy a QT inspired take on it. I agree with everyone else saying he should tackle a new genre i agree.
        • Brian Sleider
          Skyfall was not a good movie, not sure why people think it was.
        • OfficialJab
          I don't consider trying to make 007 a masterful Mendes drama a return to form. I liked Skyfall apart from the atrocious 'villain planned to get caught cliché', but they haven't been hilarious and wacky since the Brosnans, and I miss that. Casino was close, occasionally.
    • I agree. Django was so damn good it doesn't need to be revisited in my opinion. There's a great deal of other intriguing western ideas he could tackle. I offer this though: stay away from the small time sheriff taking on a bunch of gunmen to protect his little community. It's been done to death.
  • Brian Sleider
    Yes please.

    Sleep Tight dear dear MY DEAR mr.LEONE .... TARANTINO IS AWAKE
  • Bl00dwerK
    Great news. Would he not be cool to hang out with?
  • Nielsen700
    A new Tarantino film is always exciting. Too bad it's a western though. I was hoping for something brand new. In my opinion Django's his worst film.
  • cuckoozey
    I agree with Nilesen700 that any new Tarantino film is exciting, I just wish he would do another "small" crime film again...
  • Ray
    I'd like to see Tarantino make a science fiction film. I'd imagine it would look something like John Carpenter's Dark Star or the recent Beyond the Black Rainbow.
  • Jon Odishaw
    Tarantino always seems to relish the opportunity to pay homage to a new genre of film and that's what I find so exciting about him. So even though Tarantino is by a wide margin my favourite modern director, this news disappoints me slightly.
  • ProjectionistHP
    Why on earth would anyone hope a sequel for django. Exellent movie but that story has been told... Maybe he could combine his skills in crime movies into western, reservoir cowboys 😀
  • Isildur_of_Numenor
    Personally I am overjoyed he's doing another western. The genre is dying, it needs more films and more directors like QT to make them. Though I agree that another slavery centered story can be a bit repetitive. But I'm sure QT can make a solid stand-alone movie without being too similar to Django.
  • cobrazombie
    Reservoir Dogs is ripe for a reboot.
    • rage72
      If only he had done the Vega Brothers movie years ago.
  • rage72
    I'd like to see Tarantino do either a 30's gangster movie or let him tackle something along the lines of a graphic novel/comic movie.
  • Terry Craig
    I predict it will involve Native Americans and much more scalping than in Inglourious Basterds. Especially since he proclaimed his rightful hate for John Ford for portraying "faceless Indians" being "killed like zombies". Although he also did say once he was interested in doing a biopic of western-era abolitionist John Brown, so that's another possibility for this film.

    I hope Quentin stays with the Clint Eastwood style of Westerns.
