“DJANGO: UNCHAINED” GETS A SEQUEL
DJANGO: UNCHAINED SEQUEL IS A COMIC BOOK FILM
Quentin Tarantino has made it his life’s mission to create a film for every genre. He was able to fulfill the Western genre with his slavery-mocking film Django: Unchained. Now Tarantino is heading towards the new crossover genre with Jerrod Carmichael.
Apparently, a comic book was created by Tarantino and Matt Wagner that featured the adventures of Django after the film’s ending. In this comic, Django actually meets and teams up with the iconic hero Zorro. The film and comic are called Django/Zorro and the synopsis is basically a summary of the comic:
“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!”
With the comic serving as the base of the script, this production should surely come around quickly. Jerrod Carmichael has signed on to write the script, but Tarantino may co-write with him. While Tarantino will produce the film, we also don’t know if he will direct as well. The most crucial part of this film’s production, however, will come down to whether Jamie Foxx reprises his role as Django.
