We never imagined that Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained would ever team-up with anyone other than Dr. Schultz, but we REALLY never expected a comic sequel where Django will meet Zorro. We can’t wait though! The two will team up in Django/Zorro from Dynamite Entertainment later this year. The book is being co-plotted and written by Tarantino himself and comic book writer Matt Wagner. Reginald Hudson, who wrote the adapted screenplay for Django Unchained will serve as editor. There is no news on the artist as of yet.
Tarantino had this to say about the crossover.
“I’m very very excited about both this story and the opportunity to work with Matt. It was reading his Zorro stories that convinced me what a good idea it was to join these two icons together. And the story idea we came up with is thrilling, and I think will be an exciting new chapter for both characters.”
“This project is an absolute thrill! When Quentin and I first met, it felt like we’d known each other for years. The give-and-take energy of our initial story sessions was just incredible! It’s a particular buzz to be writing Zorro once again…and especially to team him up with the magnetic lead character from Quentin’s most straight-up heroic movie, Django Unchained! The Wild West is never gonna be the same once these two come to town!”
