After Gawker’s leaked script threw a massive monkey wrench into Quentin Tarantino’s plans to direct The Hateful Eight, it’s still unclear what the director’s next project will be. The Hateful Eight lawsuit was dropped, a star-studded live reading took place and insider rumors suggested that Tarantino was ready to again move forward with the film. However, at a Cannes press conference celebrating the 20th anniversary of his landmark Pulp Fiction, the director was mostly silent about The Hateful Eight. Instead, he let slip that he was actually mulling a return to one of his previous films: slavery western Django Unchained.

Apparently, Tarantino wants to revisit Django Unchained as a four-hour TV miniseries. The original film ran 165 minutes, which many critics found to be excessive, but the director had to cut out about 90 minutes of footage to even make that runtime.

“I have about 90 minutes worth of material with Django. »
