Inglourious Basterds 2?
Yes, this is a thing that is supposedly going to happen.
If you didn’t get enough Aldo Raine in the first World War II love letter by Quentin Tarantino, then gird your loins because there’s a sequel/prequel in the works. In an interview with Fresh Air on NPR (National Public Radio for our British friends who have no idea what the American equivalent of the BBC would be) Brad Pitt led the world to believe that there is much more to the IB sequel than previously planned.
We know that as far back as 2009 that Tarantino was already in the process of writing the script and had completed nearly a third of the screenplay. One can only wonder if Quentin has finished the thing up and is just waiting for the proper time to film considering the man is always busy.
From the interview, after you hear about the paparazzi and his kids, it turns to his character in the film and the amazingly meaty scar that he had on his neck. See the picture above if you don’t remember.
“[Tarantino] said it would never be explained..and if he ever does what he called a prequel-slash-sequel, then we’ll reveal it then. He [Tarantino] talks about [Inglourious Basterds 2], but he’s got several things percolating at once.”
You might say we’re grasping straws in the hopes that this is true, but from what I’ve learned over the years is that it’s a rare occasion that Brad Pitt or Quentin Tarantino lie about their projects. Say what you will about my favorite director, but he’s not one to normally NOT make a movie so I feel that we’ll see a sequel or prequel one of these days after he finished his current Django movie.
