While doing press for The Last Exorcism Part II, which he produced, writer/actor/director Eli Roth has confirmed that Killer Crow, the proposed follow-up to Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, is in the works. And that it may be the director's next film.
Eli Roth to return as The Bear Jew in Killer Crow
Killer Crow is the third in a revisionist history trilogy that started with Inglourious Basterds, and continues with Django Unchained. The movie will close out this series of films, and serves as a spin-off of Inglourious Basterds. The story follows a rogue squad of black soldiers during World War II who go AWOL. Their story will intersect with the characters seen in Inglourious Basterds, and Eli Roth confirms that The Bear Jew will return.
"I've known about that project for ten years, so we've definitely discussed it. Quentin knows I'm ready to pick up the bat. I'm always ready to pick up the bat for him if he needs it."
Quentin Tarantino has not yet confirmed what his next directorial project will be. He has hinted that Killer Crow might be it, instead of straying from the trilogy only to return later. Do you want to see Killer Crow next? Or do you want to see Quentin tackle a children's movie, the way Martin Scorsese did with Hugo?
