Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is all set to sweep up this awards season and yet the film’s writer and director, Quentin Tarantino has revealed he’s not done with that world yet.
In the movie, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Rick Dalton, stars in a TV show called Bounty Law and a few months back Tarantino had revealed he’d actually written five episodes of this series.
He’s now revealed that he wants to direct them, which is brilliant and utterly mad.
The writer/director and occasional actor was talking to Deadline about his movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and its chances at the Oscars and what he’ll do next.
This was when Quentin Tarantino revealed that he was going to actually direct the episodes of Bounty Law he had written.
“As far as the Bounty Law shows, I want to do that, but it will take me a year and a half,” he said.
“It got an introduction from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but I don’t really consider it part of that movie even though it is.
Quentin Tarantino is making Bounty Law
“This is not about Rick Dalton playing Jake Cahill. It’s about Jake Cahill. Where all this came from was, I ended up watching a bunch of Wanted, Dead or Alive, and The Rifleman, and Tales of Wells Fargo, these half-hour shows to get in the mindset of Bounty Law, the kind of show Rick was on. I’d liked them before, but I got really into them.”
I love this news. I love how mad Quentin Tarantino is and I love how devoted he is.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood wasn’t my favourite movie of the year, but I loved watching it, and I did include it in my top ten movies of 2019.
It did come in tenth place, and the reason it wasn’t higher was because I felt its length was a bit of an issue.
I loved the performances and the characters and I would happily spend more time with them.
What do you make of this news? Are you looking forward to watching Quentin Tarantino’s Bounty Law?
