Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he hopes to adapt his film, Django Unchained, into a TV mini-series. This series it to consist of four hour-long chapters.
In his press conference at Cannes Film Festival, Tarantino has said that he has ninety minutes of unseen footage from the film, and that he plans to edit this into a mini-series for the television.
Talking about the potential project, he said: “It would be a mini-series and people love those. You show people a four-hour movie and they roll their eyes. Show people a four-part mini-series and they’ll sit and watch it all in one sitting”.
Django Unchained, released in the UK in early 2013, told the story of a freed slave who sets out to free his wife with the help of the bounty hunter that rescued him. The film starred the likes of Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio. It was also nominated for 5 Oscars, two of which it one.
