More Inglourious Basterds?
Quentin Tarantino often talks about sequels to films, which he then never actually makes. That means we should probably take the following news with a pinch of salt.
Harvey Weinstein says there may be a sequel to Inglourious Basterds.
Way back when Quentin Tarantino was writing Inglourious Basterds, there were rumours that it could end up being two or even three films. Mostly down to the large amount of material that Tarantino had come up with. Now before Inglourious Basterds is even released, Harvey Weinstein says they want to do more.
Brad wants to do Inglourious II. We all want to do it. And the movie hasn't even come out yet! But unfortunately I cannot give away the plot.
Weinstein was talking to GQ, through The Guardian. It doesn't sound like they are short of material for any prequel or sequel. As talk at one stage was that it could end up as a TV series.
We could do two movies, three movies. I was begging for the movies, but Quentin wanted to do the TV series, Bob [Weinstein, Harvey's partner in The Weinstein Company] wanted to do the TV series, so it was like two against one, you know? And I was getting outvoted all over the place, so I just figured, All right, forget it, I'm not gonna be a loser, I'll jump to the winning side. And then Quentin turns it into one movie. Go figure.
We have heard talk of a prequel or sequel before. But as was mentioned earlier, Tarantino often says he'd like to do sequels. And then promptly changes his mind and moves onto something different. I guess the response to Inglourious Basterds, will decide if there is an appetite for any more films. Some of the response from Cannes wasn't overly positive, but we since heard that there was still some editing work to be done at that stage.
