More Inglourious Basterds?

Tarantino mentions he has something “half-written”

The first film won’t even hit cinemas until the end of the summer, but Quentin Tarantino is already dropping hints that he’s got more Inglourious Basterds action simmering in his brain-pan.

Of course, for now, he’s just throwing things out there. But as the movie prepares to launch at Cannes, he’s been chatting it up.

“Once the Basterds get through with Europe, they could go to the South and do it to the Kluxers in the ’50s. That’s another story you could tell,” he blabbed to the New York Times. Yes, it’s hate group-bashing agogo!

And it’s not only a sequel (though he has ideas for that) bubbling away: QT mentions that he has one of those, too.

“I have a half-written prequel ready to go if this movie’s a smash,” he tells the newspaper. It’s a hefty “if”, but then QT’s not known for his shy style when it comes teasing fans with spin-offs or sequels…

Are you excited for Basterds? Do you want him to get to work on more adventures now, instead of teasing us for years like the Kill Bill prequel or the Vega Brothers?

      Anything Tarantino gets me excited. He is far and away my favorite director working today. Yeah, he does talk up a lot of ideas that may not come to fruition, but when he commits an image to film-not many directors can match the level of quality. Not the Coens, Spielberg, (maybe Fincher).

      This Film is going to be Amazing. I hope Tarantino decides to do another film... and hopefully it won't take too long. I wish that besides more films of Inglourious Basterds, he does that Kill Bill prequel... It will be brilliant!

      If he can shoot another Basterds as quickly as he has done with the first one (but hopefully write it just a little bit quicker), then sure. If not, no. One of the things I love about Tarantino movies is that (provided you count Kill Bill as one film), everything he makes has a completely different to what he made before, even if there are some fundamental similarities. The idea of QT doing sequels sort of makes me want to kill the nearest living thing I see. If I have to wait three or four years for another QT film, I don't want it to be a derivative of something he's already made.

      Ohhh that basterd, a sequel already? apparantly he feels confident the movie will be good and successful. Although I am wondering what the ending will be like, Hopefully not just some Matrix sequels "to be continued" c**p.
