If you didn't get enough cathartic revenge for historical wrongs from Django Unchained, then rejoice. Quentin Tarantino isn't done showing the victims of racial abuse rising up and killing the oppressors. His third alt-history movie, Killer Crow, tells the story of African American soldiers during World War II who go on a crazy rampage and kill every white person in sight.


Talking to Harvard's Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Tarantino explains:

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.

So that was always going to be part of it. And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It's ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.... It would be [connected to] Inglourious Basterds, too, because Inglourious Basterds are in it, but it is about the soldiers. It would be called Killer Crow or something like that.

Now wait a minute. We just had a black on white thing. Can't we at least go back to the Jews and have them fucking up the Romans or something? I have a great idea for a Tarantino revenge movie: let's have a band of violent dolphins go on a bloody rampage against Japanese fisherman. Needs a snappy title though.
