Quentin Tarantino enjoyed working on Django Unchained so much that he decided to partake in another western for his next film…

Any time director and writer Quentin Tarantino decides he’s working on a new script, the entire world stops and listens because he’s become one of the biggest and best filmmakers of the last half century and it appears his latest effort is underway.
The genre will be familiar territory for Tarantino because as he revealed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, his next film will be a Western — although he promises it won’t be a sequel to his Oscar award winning movie Django Unchained.
“I haven’t told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre — it’s a western,” Tarantino told Leno on the show.
“I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like okay, let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing!”
Historically, Tarantino has never set time limits for how often he completes a film or when he actually brings it into production. Following his work on Jackie Brown, which was released in 1997, Tarantino took a few years off to work on the scripts for what became Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2, which were then released in 2003 and 2004.
Tarantino wrote and directed Inglorious Basterds in 2009 from a script he had been teasing for several years after noting a particular interest in doing a World War II film, and then returned again in 2012 with Django Unchained.
While Tarantino announced the genre of his next project, don’t expect to see it come to life for at least a couple of years as the prolific mastermind likes to perfect his work before opting to bring it to life on the big screen.
Luckily it’s pretty much a lock that whenever Tarantino finally does step back behind the camera to direct his latest work it’s almost a guaranteed masterpiece by the time it lands in theaters.
