Tarantino Planning ‘Basterds’ Sequel?

You all know how much I loved Ingloruious Basterds, right? (protip: I didn't.)  Well, hold onto your baseball bats because Quentin Tarantino is apparently planning a sequel.  If this is true, I hope it does not take off.

It sounds like "Miracle at St. Anna" on acid and I don't like it.  It almost sounds more true to the original '78 Inglorious Bastards (which was actually kind of fun.)  At the very least I hope he leaves the whole film-school turtleneck and scarf business out of this one.

I don't know exactly when I'm going to do it, but 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.

    I hope he is kidding! I actually liked IG although I hate rewriting history. It was entertaining at least.
