With Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film due out next month, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, comes news of a sequel to another one of his films, Django Unchained. According to Collider, the film will be based off the comic series, Django/Zorro which serves as an official sequel to the 2012 film.
Jerrod Carmichael has repotredly been hired to write the script but no word on whether he will write it on his own or if Tarantino will co-write. Collider’s sources appear to be somewhat conflicting as they report, “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.”

An official synopsis for the comic series follows below.
“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!”
I don’t think I am alone is thinking a big screen team up of one of Tarantino’s beloved characters and the legendary swordsman Zorro has potential to be great. Word of the project first came roughly five years ago when Sony was hacked and email exchanges concerning the film were discovered. Many questions remain, such as Tarantino’s supposed 10 film limit, his overall invovlement in the film, and perhaps the biggest one of all, is Jamie Foxx in or out?
