Quentin Tarantino has been silent about his next project but recently on The Tonight Show, he revealed that he will be following the western genre once again. Although it will be in the same genre, do not expect a sequel or a film related to Django Unchained. Tarantino claims that he had always loved the genre and now that he’s figured out how to properly do a western, he wants to continue to do so.
I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing,'” Tarantino said.
Does this mean we will be expecting westerns from Tarantino for awhile? I don’t think that we can necessarily expect anything particular from Tarantino. He is someone that gets passionate about something for awhile and then can drop it and move on to something else almost instantaneously. In the past he has promised a third film in the Kill Bill franchise and also a prequel to Reservoir Dogs. Both of those statements were later redacted. My opinion is to take what Tarantino says with a grain of salt. He’s a very passionate guy with interests in many things, which is what makes him such an interesting director, but his films are something that catch you off guard. When it comes to Tarantino films, it’s best to just accept them when they come rather than trying to figure out what’s coming.
