Tarantino co-wrote the 2015 Django/Zorro comic with writer Matt Wagner. The book’s art was drawn by Spanish artist Esteve Polls. For the time being, there has been no confirmation whether Quentin will collaborate with Matt on the new film or will stick to the direction. As per speculation, the film-maker might even end up as a producer of the film.
The film will be a sequel to the 2012 movie, Django Unchained. The movie’s entire plot is same as of the comic book Django/Zorro, written by Tarantino and published by Dynamite Entertainment and DC Comics.
The 2012 prequel saw Jamie Foxx play the role of the protagonist Django Freeman alongside an excellent supporting cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Christopher Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson among others. The movie went on to win several accolades the most prestigious being the 2 Oscars it won in the Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor category.
It still remains unclear whether Jamie Foxx will reprise his role as the titular gunslinger. The film is all set to pick up what is left after a time jump of a couple of years. According to the plot summary written by ScreenRant, the movie sees Django return to the road, only to cross paths with Diego de la Vega aka Zorro. After forming a bit of a friendship, the two join forces for a new adventure that could make its way to the big screen next.
