Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, where he revealed the first details about his new project. While he wouldn't divulge anything about the story, or the title, he did say it is another Western. Though, it won't be a sequel to Django Unchained. Take a look at the video, and read on for quotes from his appearance.
"I haven't told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre. It's a western. It's not a Django (Unchained) sequel, but it's another Western, and the thing is, I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like 'OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I'm doing.'"
While it may be some time before we know exactly what this project is, there is the possibility that he is adapting another Elmore Leonard novel. The filmmaker turned his novel Rum Punch into the 1997 classic Jackie Brown. The author wrote a number of Western stories during his prolific career, including 3:10 to Yuma, which was adapted for the big screen twice, along with many others.
When asked about his process of writing a script, the filmmaker had this to say.
"In the last five years, it's sort of developed into something else. Before, what I would do is, normally if I had to write during the day, I'd go to a restaurant or go to a bar and write in public, get the juices flowing that way, but then at home, I'd write all night long. That kind of changed around the time of Inglourious Basterds. I just started writing at home, like let's say 10 in the morning, and I'd write until 5 or 6 or 7, whenever the muses leave you. That would be the work that I did for that day, then afterwards, I would go into my pool. I keep my pool warm, I heat my pool a lot. I do swim in my pool, but in this case, I soak, and what I'm doing is, if I just finished a scene, then I'm thinking about how I can make it better, or what happens next. I just sit there and think about it and all these ideas come to me and I kind of work it out a little bit. Then I get out of the pool and make notes, but I don't do them. I go out or I watch TV, but that's my work for the next day."
