Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ To Get A Comic Book Sequel

9 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tarantino and Western film fans are in for a real treat, as Django Unchained will be getting a sequel in the form of a comic book series. To top it off,  it will be a crossover with the masked outlaw, Zorro!

Dynamite Entertainment, who publish comics such as The Bionic Woman and Buck Rogers, will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year by releasing the first non-film sequel to Django Unchained. Django will be teamed up with Dynamite’s long running character Zorro who is the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega. Tarantino fans will notice that Zorro’s last name is shared with the Vega brothers, Vincent (Pulp Fiction) and Mr. Blonde (Reservoir Dogs), which could mean in the director’s ‘Realer Than Real World’ universe, Zorro is a distant relative of the brothers!

Important figures from Dynamite Entertainment and Tarantino himself gathered at Comic-Con in San »

Comic-Con: Quentin Tarantino Confirms 'Hateful Eight' Is Moving Forward

27 July 2014 4:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was heading to Comic-Con 2014 to present his Dynamite comic book series that combines characters from his hit 2012 Western Django Unchained with the iconic Zorro character. During the panel, the filmmaker confirmed that he is moving forward with his new Western The Hateful Eight.

Deadline reported just before the panel began that the filmmaker is eyeing an early 2015 start date, which lines up with a report from earlier this month where Kurt Russell revealed shooting will begin early next year. The director wouldn't divulge any more details about the project at the Comic-Con panel.

As you may know, The Hateful Eight almost never made it off the ground after the script was first completed. We reported in January that the first draft of his script was leaked, which lead to the lawsuit he filed against Gawker Media. After initially talking about shelving the project indefinitely, »

New Scribe Hired For Sony's "Zorro" Reboot

6 March 2014 6:28 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony Pictures is moving forward with a planned reboot of the "Zorro" franchise based on Chilean author Isabel Allende's 2005 novel.

Fencer-turned-screenwriter Chris Boal, brother of Mark Boal ("Zero Dark Thirty," "The Hurt Locker"), has come onboard to rewrite a draft previously penned by Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia.

The Zorro character first appeared in Johnston McCulley's 1919 novella "The Curse of Capistrano", Allende's work is an origin tale and prequel to the events of that story, and contains numerous references to other famous Zorro works including 1998's "The Mask of Zorro".

Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes are set to produce the film which aims to bring a "Batman Begins" style approach to the character with a new backstory, gritty realism and emotional elements.

The project is not to be confused with Fox's rival sci-fi take "Zorro Reborn" which puts the character in a "Mad Max"-esque apocalyptic wasteland.

Chris Boal to script Sony's Zorro reboot

6 March 2014 1:19 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Quite a bit of time has gone by since we last talked about the Zorro reboot. The last time we saw the character portrayed was back in 2005 with Antonio Banderas in the lead. A little Legend Of Zorro anyone? Those were pretty okay flicks. Banderas was the hot thing along with co-star Catherine Zeta Jones, also hot. It worked nicely. Oddly, my memories of the character go back to when Guy Williams wore the mask. That was way before I was born, but when nothing else was on TV at my »
