Quentin Tarantino's last two films were both received with critical acclaim, which besides his diehard followers, is usually a gray area for him in terms of mass appeal. The two films are "Django Unchained", currently in AMC Theatres and his 2009 "Inglorious Basterds". Both films revisited an important part of history as told through Tarantino's unique and quirky storytelling. Movie-goers have come to expect that a Tarantino film will incorporate an expected level of violence and colorful, eccentric characters.
Fans will be pleased to know that Tarantino may have another film in the works which will explore a similar vein as the last two. Inspired by the creative process involved with the making of "Inglorious Basterds", the project is tentatively titled "Killer Crow". The film would take place in 1944 after the Invasion of Normandy and would focus on a group of black soldiers who go crazy.
Here is what Tarantino had to say about his potential upcoming project:
"…My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when 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 f–ked over by the American military and kind of go apes–t. They basically — the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an "Apache resistance" — [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 [connected to] Inglourious Basterds, too, because Inglourious Basterds are in it, but it is about the soldiers. It would be called Killer Crow or something like that."
