A “Django Unchained” sequel involving Zorro is in the works from director Quentin Tarantino and writer Jerrod Carmichael.Collider reports Tarantino is developing an adaptation of the “Django/Zorro” crossover comic book series, which he co-wrote with Matt Wagner in 2015.
The story picks up several years after the events of “Django Unchained.” Django is still working as a bounty hunter, though there is a bounty on his own head after his killing spree on the Candyland plantation. He heads west and encounters the aging Diego de la Vega, aka Zorro. Django becomes Zorro’s bodyguard as they embark on a mission to free the local indigenous population from slavery.
The project’s possible existence first bubbled up during the Sony hack, which revealed several email exchanges between Tarantino and then-Sony boss Amy Pascal.
According to Collider, “The film adaptation is real and that Carmichael is working on the script, though they differ on whether he’s writing it on his own with oversight from Tarantino, or co-writing with Quentin himself as well as another, as-yet-unidentified writer.”
It’s also unclear if Tarantino would direct the movie himself, or simply serve as an executive producer.
Tarantino’s next film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” opens July 26.
