Quentin Tarantino is Writing Another Western

By  · Published on November 27th, 2013

There’s probably a good argument for claiming that most of Quentin Tarantino’s movies are Westerns. Or at least a good argument that Westerns, samurai flicks and WWII huddle-up pictures all have similar DNA.

Now, coming off his Southern Django Unchained, Tarantino is writing another adventure through the dusty wilds. And he wrote it using his heated pool.

“It’s not a Django sequel, but it’s another Western. 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 ‘Well, okay. Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing.’”

The full conversation (including a brief mention of his screenwriting methods) took place on The Tonight Show before Jay Leno gifted Tarantino with a Best Director mug.

It’s a shame that it won’t be a Django sequel if only because Adventures in Candy Land would make a hell of a movie, but at this point in his career it’s easy to get excited about Tarantino returning to the genre. Granted, it would also be easy to get excited about him making a musical or a Masterpiece mystery or a Sears How-to video. The guy is on fire.
