Quentin Tarantino Turning "Django Unchained" Into A TV Series

(AllHipHop News) Quentin Tarantino has dangled the prospect of his next project since 2012’s Django Unchained for over a year. During a recent press conference at the Cannes film festival, Tarantino divulged plans to turn the 2012 film into a miniseries for television.

According to Tarantino, he will use 90 minutes of unreleased Django Unchained footage for a planned miniseries consisting of four hour-long chapters. While Tarantino did not reveal how he will release the TV he does allude to the Netflix-style of binge watching where they release all the episodes of a TV series at once:

It would be a mini-series and people love those. You show people a four-hour movie and they roll their eyes. Show people a four-part mini-series and they’ll sit and watch it all in one sitting.

Check out the full interview with The Guardian here.

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    as long as Django is killing white people like the movie then im all for it
    if it gets watered down to “the life of django” and he aint killing white people then whats the point

    Don’t. Django was garbage.

  • ladynamor

    You ever notice how blacks always are in a desperate, weak situation in a lot of Tarantino’s movies? Showing how we get “revenge” after we are humiliated? He did not do that in Inglorious Bastards to the Jews, he focused on the revenge mostly. He got grown black men getting f*cked in the ass and beaten and everything else in his movies. Wow. Maybe he should make a movie about Italians and show how sh!tty they are as well. Just a thought.

    • The Jews were weak in Basterds.That’s why the German was coming in their houses and killing whole families.Samuel Jackson never been a weak character in his films.Jackie Brown wasn’t weak.Marsellus Wallace wasn’t weak,Tarantino has a fascination w/ black ppl and blaxploitation.He doesn’t know how to convey it sometimes and can only see things from his view.I do think he loves black shit.white characters get fucked up in his movies too so DK how blacks would never get fucked up in violent films. Sam jack walked away scott free in Pulp Fiction.The only black person in Reservoir dogs is a policemen,Jackie Brown was a boss chick, The black dude in Inglorious is one of the few that lives.

        Samuel Jackson was a shiftless jigaboo kissing white mens butt in Django, What are you talking about. There was no brutal rape scenes on the Jews in I.B. You are disagreeing just to disagree.

      • David Gonz

    • Brindle

      • Immortal

        Bruh as much as I like Will and what he’s done, even I have to question him after he allowed his daughter to take a pic with a grown ass man with no shirt in a bed. And for the wife to say that’s ok….. Naw that’s NOT OK, and you would think they would’ve learned after the whole MJ fiasco.

      • ‘Chet…check out Will’s homo sex scene in 6 degrees of Seperation.

    Utter foolishness, and will not be supporting this bullshit

  • If it was a series about Jews and the Holocaust depicted in such a horrific manner, it’d b a wrap 4 Tarantino. DJango, ZeroDarkThirty, etc, all White Supremacist masturbation flicks.

  • Tarantino, why don’t u make a flick about how Italians got to be so dark? or how they tried to hit up Ethiopia and got smacked twice?

  • Andre Terrell-Dartavius Smith

    I don’t know what you guys are talking about. Django Unchained hands down best slave movie ever made. It did something that Roots couldn’t do and that is show the rise from slave to H.N.I.C. because if you read your history, you will see we had plenty of black hero’s, but won’t find it in school’s history books.

    People mad because the man that made it isn’t the same color as them…..I say to anyone that has a problem with it that is black, get your lazy ass off this damn site and write the next rise up slave hero movie! #tassboston

    • TrainingBra

      What kind of messy azz comment is this? People are mad, and rightfully so, that Hollywood has such a systemic issue of race and what the black diaspora is that it can only be sold and told internationally through the eyes of white man that wistfully throws around the “N” word.

      • It will continue to happen until Blacks get their own, otherwise, they will never control how their image is portrayed by Hollywood.

    • it’s by far not the best slave movie.It’s more of a blaxploitation/revernge porn movie like I’ll Spit On your grave.There isn’t a history of slave fighting.It’s a great movie,but not historically correct.Roots makes you feel a whole other way than Django.Django is more fictional,adventurous
      ,and exciting in a movie way
