“Inglourious Basterds”, Quentin Tarantino’s last film, was both a hit commercially and critically. Now, he returns with “Django Unchained”, starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and more. Are the two connected? There have already been connections to the world of Basterds to some of Tarantino’s other films. Here’s an interesting quote he told Total Film:

Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy. As different as they are, there is a companion piece quality. There might very well be a third one. I just don’t know what it is yet.”

Hm. Sounds interesting doesn’t it? Tarantino said he’d always wanted to do a gangster film. He also said he’d like to return to Kill Bill after 10 years, which would be in 2014.
