Despite having only just handed his new film One Upon a Time in Hollywood its world premiere, it appears Quentin Tarantino is already working on his next project.
Working alongside Jerrod Carmichael, Tarantino will co-write a Django/Zorro crossover film which has been taken from the iconic comic book series of the same name.
The film, which will act as a sequel of sorts to Tarantino’s previous film Django Unchained, will take place several years after the events of the Jamie Foxx 2012 film, according to Collider.
The information still remains slightly confusion but the source does confirm that “the film adaptation is real and that Carmichael is working on the script, though they differ on whether he’s writing it on his own with oversight from Tarantino, or co-writing with Quentin himself as well as another, as-yet-unidentified writer.”
The project comes as an adaptation of Matt Wagner’s comic book who, in turn, completed the series alongside artist Esteve Polls.
Read the official comic book synopsis, below.
[su_box title=”‘Django/Zorro’ comic synopsis: ” box_color=”#dadada”] The official Django Unchained sequel, uniting the gun-blazing Western hero with the legendary swordsman of literature, film, and comics: Zorro! Set several years after the events of Django Unchained, Django again pursues evil men in his role as a bounty hunter. Taking to the roads of the American Southwest, he encounters the aged and sophisticated Diego de la Vega by sheer chance. Django is fascinated by this unusual character, the first wealthy white man he’s met who seems totally unconcerned with the color of his skin… and who can hold his own in a fight. Django hires on as Diego’s bodyguard, and is soon drawn into a fight to free the local indigenous people from brutal servitude. Learning much from the older man (as he did from King Schultz), he discovers that slavery isn’t exclusive to his people, as he even dons the mask of Zorro in their mission of mercy![/su_box]
