Tarantino may be working on a Django/Zorro crossover movie
Did you really think the story of “the fastest gun in the South” ended with the man riding a horse into the night? No way, there’s more work to be done.
Even the biggest Quentin Tarantino fans among you may not have known that in 2014 he co-authored a comic book based on his film Django Unchained.
It saw Django team up with Zorro (you know, with Antonio Banderas), and was co-written by Django Unchained producer Reginald Hudlin and Matt Wanger, a Batman and The Monster Men writer.
If you weren’t already aware of this graphic novel, you’re about to be – because a Django/Zorro crossover film could be about to hit screens.
The book is set years after Django Unchained’s action. Django has found a home for him and his wife Broomhilda. It’s here he meets Zorro (at this point, pretty elderly) who he pledges to protect as they try to free more people.
Complex reports “one source overheard a conversation between Tarantino and Sony chief Tom Rothman during the Cannes Film Festival, which seemed to suggest the project was moving forward and that Rothman was "excited about its direction”.
There are no details yet on whether Tarantino himself will be at the helm, though Complex also suggests that it’s more likely he’ll serve as executive producer as he did with the Hostel films.
Tarantino’s latest project is out soon, too, so super-fans still have something to tide them over. Once Upon A Time In... Hollywood is Tarantino’s "love letter to LA", and it’s already had quite the reaction from fans at the Cannes Film Festival.
It’s a crossover we’re begging to see, along with Ryan Reynolds coming to the Fast & Furious franchise (we always wanted a little Deadpool) and Keanu Reeves being in demand to join the MCU.
Fingers crossed that it will actually happen.
