Tarantino’s Zorro & Django Crossover Movie Update Shared By Writer


Jerrod Carmichael says the Quentin Tarantino Django/Zorro crossover movie is an impossibility, but had the potential to be huge.

The film crossed between Django Unchained and Zorro won’t happen according to the screenwriter of the film. Django Unchained was released in December 2012 and was a critical and financial success, becoming director Quentin Tarantino’s highest-grossing film and earning five Oscar nominations. It won Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz and Tarantino’s second Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Tarantino soon began talking about a sequel to the film, which would be a crossover with famous pulp hero Zorro.

The concept came to life as a comic book published by Dynamite Entertainment in 2014. Then, in 2019, Tarantino hired comedian and writer Jerrod Carmichael to help write the script for the film and Tarantino even pitched the idea. to Antonio Banderas, who starred as Zorro in the 1998s The Mask of Zorro and 2005 The Legend of Zorro. The intention seems to have been an epic crossover between Jamie Foxx’s Django and Banderas’ incarnation of Zorro, which made sense since those Zorro films were distributed by Sony Pictures and Sony acquired the international distribution rights to Django Unchained and worked with Tarantino on Once upon a time in Hollywood.

In an interview with QG, Carmichael reveals the Django/Zorro movie isn’t happening. Carmichael doesn’t delve into why the project was scrapped, but says it’s impossible. Carmichael says he thinks he and Tarantino wrote a $500 million movie, which could mean either the budget price or how much they expected the movie to make at the box office, but the latter seems like the most viable option. carmichael said:

“Quentin is a madman that I love, and I’m glad I was able to pass the time. We saw exploitation films at New Beverly, he read me scenes that had never happened in his films , which he had typed, in his kitchen after making freshly squeezed lemonade for me. It was really special. It’s actually an amazing, amazing script that comes from this Django/Zorro that I wish Sony understand, but I realize the impossibility. But I still think we wrote a 500 million dollar movie.

Antonio Banderas as Zorro and Jamie Foxx as Django

What makes the crossover film impossible remains unknown. Although Sony Pictures owns the international rights to Django Unchained, it is unclear if The Weinstein Company still owns the domestic rights to the film. One factor could be that several Zorro projects are currently in various stages of development, one featuring That 70s show star Wilmer Valderrama and another being a female-led Zorro series for The CW created by Tarantino’s longtime friend and collaborator Robert Rodriguez.

Another possible contributing factor is that Tarantino plans to retire after his next film, which will mark his tenth film. While the director has yet to decide on his final film, it seems he doesn’t want to end his career with a sequel but rather do something new. Similar to his star trek 4 and his reservoir dogs/pulp Fiction crossing The Vega brothersit appears that the Django Unchained and Zorro crossover joins a long line of films that Tarantino launched that never hit the big screen.
