Collider reports that a sequel to 2012’s Django Unchained is in the works, with original helmer Quentin Tarantino having tapped Jerrod Carmichael to co-write the sequel.
Tarantino riffed on his character in 2015 by collaborating with Matt Wagner (seriously, one of the greatest yet least referenced writer/artists in the biz), bringing a Django/Zorro crossover comic book to fruition for Dynamite Entertainment and DC’s Vertigo imprint.
Without exactly retreading the character growth of Django in the film, it seems to be a comfortable setup for him to follow, but this will no doubt take on a brand new shine with the introduction of the legendary outlaw Zorro.
As if Tarantino’s announcement of an R-Rated Star Trek film isn’t keeping him busy, he’s also hinted that he’ll write the third part of his Kill Bill franchise, while Carmichael is best known for his comedic work on The Carmichael Show, with an untitled Nate Bargatze project in development.
What do you think, Wasteoids? Tarantino’s hardly out of the picture even with his famous ’10 movies’ career nearing completion. And speaking of conceptual marriages made in heaven, Tarantino’s funny book with Matt Wagner (who, by the way, wrote the single best Batman story ever set to print…and it was a crossover) must have made for some compelling reading.
