Quentin Tarantino Says He Could Complete His Revenge Trilogy With Killer Crow

Quentin Tarantino is famous for talking about projects that are never going to happen. After it was revealed that Vincent Vega (John Travolta) from Pulp Fiction and Vic Vega (Michael Madsen) from Reservoir Dogs were siblings there was talk of a Vega Brothers movie that never managed to get off the ground. We also still happen to be waiting for the home video release of Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair (which actually does exist), but the writer/director also recently revealed that his plans for a Kill Bill Vol. 3 - set a decade after Vol. 2 - wasn't going to work out. So when listening to Tarantino talk about what he's going to do next it's best to take everything he says with a grain of salt.

With Django Unchained in theaters now the filmmaker is currently making the press rounds and recently revealed to The Root that his next film could complete his revenge trilogy, pairing with Inglourious Basterds and his new movie. Temporarily called Killer Crow, the story would be set in 1944 after Normandy and follow a platoon of black soldiers during World War II who "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."

This story may sound familiar to Tarantino fans, as it was originally planned as a subplot of Inglorious Basterds that never made the cut. There was talk for sometime of the director taking the idea to television, producing a miniseries featuring the storyline and characters, but now it has turned back into a feature and apparently it's already nearing completion. "I have most of that written," Tarantino said. "It's ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it."

To reiterate: don't go around telling all of your friends that Quentin Tarantino has announced his next film and that it will be called Killer Crow. It's very possible that this project could be the director's eighth full feature, but I'd hold off on calling that fact until cameras start rolling.
