Quentin Tarantino hints that INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and DJANGO UNCHAINED May Be Part of a Trilogy

Quentin Tarantino loves to find a way to connect his films. John Travolta’s Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction is the brother of Michael Madsen’s Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs. The plot for Kill Bill is loosely described as a TV pilot in Pulp Fiction. Now Tarantino is hinting that Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained may be 2 parts of a trilogy. Here’s what Mr. Tarantino said;

“Inglourious 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.”

Tarantino has been talking about a gangster movie based in the 30s for a little while now. So maybe these three movies will make up his period piece films. It is doubtful they will have any direct connection but they are sure to be stylistically connected.

      Tarantino actually planned to do a prequel to Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs about the Vega brothers before they each died, but it never got off the ground.

      Also, don't forget – in Inglorious Basterds the Basterds create an alternate time-line in which Hitler and his cabinet are all killed far before the end of WWII. Ever wonder what the world would look like if that had actually happened? Well that's what Tarantino has been doing for the past twenty years. Prepare for your mind to be blown:

      Eli Roth plays a character called Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz in Inglorious Basterds. He's the guy who beats the Nazis with a bat. Well in True Romance, there's a character named Lee Donowitz, who Tarantino has confirmed is Donny's son. Also in True Romance, you have a woman named Alabama. Sound familiar? She's the same exact person that Mr. White mentions as one of his former partners in Reservoir Dogs. So, if you factor in that Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction are linked, and now we know that True Romance and Reservoir Dogs are linked, as well as True Romance and Inglorious Basterds, then clearly they all exist on the same timeline in the same universe. Then you can link all the rest (albeit kind of sketchily) with the "Red Apple Cigarettes" that crop up in all his movies. They're all in one coherent and connected timeline.

      Mind blown yet?
