Quentin Tarantino Wants “Django Unchained” TV Series


Quentin Tarantino Wants a ‘Django Unchained’ Miniseries on Television

Quentin Tarantino wants to create a ‘Django Unchained’ mini series for TV.

Tarantino wants to use 90 minutes of extra footage and turn it into a miniseries. Quentin Tarantino says he wants to release 90 minutes of new footage and turn it into a 4-hour television miniseries.


How he will turn 90 minutes into 240, will be movie magic or a ton of commercials.

“I have about 90 minutes worth of material with ‘Django.’ It hasn’t been seen. My idea, frankly, is to cut together a four-hour version of ‘Django Unchained,’” USA Today reports Tarantino told an audience at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday. ”But I wouldn’t show it like a four hour movie. I would cut it up into hour chapters. Like a four-part mini-series. And show it on cable television. Show it like an hour at a time, each chapter.”


“Django Unchained” is a slavery revenge story featuring Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kristoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. “Django Unchained” would win two Oscars in 2012 and become a hit in the box office.

Jamie Foxx, played a freed slave who joins a bounty hunter as he searches to find his long lost wife from a horrific plantation owner.

Foxx’s role was originally offered to Will Smith. But, Smith turned the role down because he felt he was not the leading actor in the movie.

“We’d use all the material I have and it wouldn’t be an endurance test. It would be a mini-series. And people love those,” Tarantino said. ”People roll their eyes at a four-hour movie. But a four-hour mini-series that they like, then they are dying to watch all four parts. That’s how I thought it could work.”
