He is an A-1 director of hit movies such as From Dusk till Dawn and Reservoir Dogs not to mention Kill Bill. And the comic sequel to Tarantino’s Django-Zorro will get published by Dynamite Entertainment.
Many luminaries got together at the Comic Con 2014 in San Diego, California to discuss the pact. Quentin aficionados especially directed many queries at him.
Tarantino employed the moniker “mate” at least 70 times in 60 seconds making it look like he was Long John Silver from Treasure Island. However, on the whole he was amiable and quite laidback in his answers.
He even patted a cinematographer fan on the back (metaphorically speaking of course). Among his assurances were the continuance of The Hateful Eight…his next big movie.
"We are going to be doing The Hateful Eight. All for you. We weren't sure about it but I just decided just now," said Quentin Tarantino.

Quentin expressed his approval of the linking of Django and Zorro in an interview. He said that he had grown up reading all sorts of comic book characters and also loved to explore the media archives in his youth.
It was a dream of his to yoke together a black western character with a Mexican western hero. And now this dream had become a reality thanks to the Django-Zorro comic which was to come out soon.
"I loved the idea [of Django meets Zorro}. One of the things that I liked so much, I grew up reading western comics and entertainment in general, whether it was the Zorro comics, or the Disney show, or Zorro's Fighting Legend," said Tarantino.
"What I thought was such a great idea was taking the most famous fictional Mexican western hero, and putting him together with one of the most famous black western heroes."
The fact that both heroes have an “o” at the end of their names makes for linguistic camaraderie. Jamie Foxx and Antonio Banderas are to play the characters of Django and Zorro respectively.
And Quentin Tarantino also talked about Jamie Foxx's first opinion on Zorro meeting up Django. "I bumped into him a few months ago and he thought it was a fantastic idea," said Quentin. "He was like: 'Can we make a movie of this? I'm their man. Let's get Antonio. Let's do this.'"
Quentin caught hold of both of them and now the project is entering it preliminary phases. Tarantino has been doing animation scenes before too since he loved to draw for fun as a youngster.
And this is one director who is going to be using Tupac Shakur’s song in the Django script. Tupac was a big fan of Tarantino. As far as good old Quentin is concerned he just might make a science fiction or fantasy film in the future.
And Dr Schultz too could make an appearance in the Django-Zorro comic book. Quentin is definitely going places!
