Sequels are pretty much status quo nowadays. But for every Dark Knight there’s a dozen more Son of the Masks. However, we think a few of Quentin Tarantino’s films (some he wrote/directed, others he just wrote) deserve a follow-up. Someone tell Harvey Weinstein to give us a call.
5. True Romance
Clarence and Alabama lived happily ever after in this Tarantino screenplay, but an alternate ending saw Clarence dying and Alabama setting off for the Mexican border. In our imagined sequel, Alabama and Clarence’s stoner roomie Floyd become a couple of vigilante-for-hire outlaws that go after crime bosses. Or maybe they just open a dispensary somewhere south of the border.
4. Natural Born Killers
Granted, Oliver Stone directed the classic, but Tarantino came up with the story (his original screenplay was re-written). We want to know what happened to the infamous Mickey and Mallory. Did they retire to a quiet, domestic life full mini-Knoxs? The sequel could be like a demented version of Ozzie and Harriet and we would be so into that.
3. Inglourious Basterds
The way we see it, The Basterds are an Avengers-esque crew of heroes (sans powers and supernatural abilities) that Tarantino could bring back time and time again. Much like Inglorious‘ fictionalized retelling of WW2, future movies could involve the crew fighting other forces of evil. He could even rotate the roster of Basterds, kind of like Menudo.
2. From Dusk till Dawn
Director Robert Rodriguez turned Tarantino’s screenplay into a comedic-horror cult hit, spawning two ill-fated sequels, a comic book, a video game, and a TV series. But we wouldn’t be against a prequel focusing on the Gecko brothers. If Richie seemed volatile as an adult, could you imagine him as a teen?
1. Kill Bill
Tarantino has been on the fence about a third Kill Bill, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. According to internet rumors, the film would involve Vernita Green’s daughter, Nikkia Bell, exacting revenge on Beatrix Kiddo for murdering her mother. Sounds badass.
