Quentin Tarantino: I had so much fun with Django, my next film will be a western
The filmmaker plans to continue adding his own twist to the cowboy genre
American film director Quentin Tarentino will be returning to the wild west for his next film after Django Unchained won best original screenplay at the Oscars in February.
The director confirmed his plans on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno when asked about any upcoming projects.
"I haven't told anyone this publicly but I will say the genre: it's a western," he said. "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."
Django Unchained stars Christoph Waltz as a bounty hunter helping freed slave Jamie Foxx rescue his wife from a cruel and violent Mississippi plantation owner.
But the filmmaker confirmed that his new project will not be a sequel to Django Unchained.
Tarentino told Leno how he writes his award-winning scripts by himself at home. "I sit there and I think about it and all of these ideas come to me," he said. "I kind of work it out a little bit. Then I get out of the pool and I make notes. Then the next day, that's my work."
The Inglourious Basterds creator has developed a reputation for putting his own distinct mark on various genres.
"I just do it my way," he said in a recent interview. "I make my own little Quentin versions of them. It's almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema and the day I die is the day I graduate."
Tarentino first appeared on Jay Leno's chat show as a young unknown in 1992 before his debut film Reservoir Dogs had been released.
"I had read about this kid who worked in a video story and he had written a movie," Leno recalled. "I thought 'Let's have him on. This could be interesting'."
