You’d have thought what with Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood on the way, the writer and director (and sometimes rather unforgivably actor) would be too busy for a Django/Zorro crossover, but no…

You may already know that after the runaway success of Django: Unchained, Quentin Tarantino wrote a comic book series set a few years after as a direct sequel.

In this series, Django comes across Diego de la Vega – or Zorro to us mortals – and the two work together to free slaves and the like. It’s a weird match, but the two work off each other perfectly.

Well with that in mind, Tarantino has to bring this pairing to the big screen, pulling in writer Jerrod Carmichael to work on the script and story.

Previously, Carmichael worked on the likes of The Carmichael Show and Laugh Factory, but it is unknown whether he will be working in tandem with Tarantino on the script or not.

The original 2012 film (which is actually not an original but you know) follows Jamie Foxx as the titular Django who follows Dr. King Schultz (Cristoph Waltz) – a bounty hunter – on his missions. Once the mission is over, Schultz frees Django and teaches him to become a formidable bounty hunter.

The two work together more, trying to save Django’s wife from Leonardo DiCaprio, eventually doing so, and riding off into the sunset.

Since Quentin Tarantino previously stated that his directorial career would be over after his tenth feature film, it’s unlikely that he would be behind the camera for this one.

With Once Upon A Time In Hollywood being his ninth, he’s going to be slightly more selective about what he chooses. While Django/Zorro sounds great, a sequel couldn’t be curtains for a man of Tarantino’s grandeur.

We’ll keep you updated on any news regarding Django/Zorro. It sounds like it’s going to be fun.
