PanARMENIAN.Net - Quentin Tarantino has revealed details about his next potential project. Tentatively titled Killer Crow, the film is planned to serve as the third in a trilogy of alternative history films with Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds, Digital Spy said.
The film would be based in 1944 - as was Inglourious Basterds - and centre around a group of black soldiers who go AWOL during the invasion of Normandy.
"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," Tarantino told The Root.
"They basically - the way Lieutenant 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."
