Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained part of a trilogy?

Quentin Tarantino has hinted that his last two films might just have a stronger than expected link between them...

It's not too long until the release of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, which arrives in US cinemas at Christmas. Granted, we here in the UK have a longer wait than our friends on the other side of the Atlantic (we get it in January), but a new QT film is always worth looking forward to. The trailers released in advance of the film certainly make it look rather good.

There was a time when all of Tarantino's films seemed to exist in the same movie world and time, but that changed with Inglorious Basterds, what with it being set during World War II and, well, Django Unchained is a western, so it's unlikely to connect with Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and such like. However, the director has offered up the following: “Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy. As different as they are, there is a companion piece quality. There might very well be a third one. I just don't know what it is yet.”

Now, as exciting as this is, Tarantino has no shortage of films on his plate. We've yet to see the mooted Vega brothers movie, for instance, and Tarantino has also mentioned a third Kill Bill adventure in the past. Still, Tarantino has stated that he would like to do a 1930s gangster film, so he could conceivably tie the three films together somehow in the grand scheme of things. The time difference between the events in the projects isn't that great. It'll be interesting what film he chooses to make once Django Unchained is in cinemas...
