Quentin Tarantino Has Begun Scripting an Inglourious Basterds Prequel

If you’ve read my glowing review of Inglourious Basterds, you know I’m a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino’s long-gestating World War II fantasy flick. I saw it twice during its theatrical run and I’ve watched it twice since it was released on DVD last week. In fact, it’s on in the background right now as I write this. Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like scalping Nazis, right?

Understandably I got pretty excited when I came across a recent New York magazine interview with the director, in which he revealed he’s completed 40 pages of an Inglourious Basterds prequel. But, Tarantino explained, it won’t be his next film. His forthcoming project—which he plans on writing in a five- to six-month period—will be “smaller, less epic” and in a “different genre entirely.” What that genre could be is anybody’s guess.

Head over to New York’s Vulture blog for the full interview.
