Quentin Tarantino hasn't made a name for himself in Hollywood by doing the expected. Following the extreme success of INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, and his latest flick DJANGO UNCHAINED, the film legend is entertaining the idea of intertwining the two films with a third, KILLER CROWE.

In a recent interview with The Root, Tarantino explains the relationship between BASTERDS, UNCHAINED, and the future CROWE, and how they fit together. He said, "there's something about this that would suggest a trilogy. My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f--ked over by the American military and kind of go apes--t. They basically -- the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an "Apache resistance" -- [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland."

"So that was always going to be part of it," Tarantino continued. "And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It's ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.

"That would be the third of the trilogy. It would be [connected to] Inglourious Basterds, too, because Inglourious Basterds are in it, but it is about the soldiers. It would be called Killer Crow or something like that."
