With the release of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood fast approaching, Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he’s written, and hopes to direct a spinoff television series about the flick.
In an interview with Deadline, the renowned scriptwriter reveals he’s been having a great time penning scripts for the fictional series Bounty Law that’s featured in the film, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Rick Dalton.
“From watching the different old Western shows and everything, I did it to get in the head of Bounty Law,” Tarantino explains. “I ended up starting to really like the idea of Jake Cahill, as a character. I really started loving those half house ’50s Western scripts. The idea that you could write something like 24 minutes, where there was so much story crammed in those half hour shows, with a real beginning and a middle and an end.”
Tarantino even revealed that he’s already written five different episodes that he hopes to be released as a black-and-white half-hour Western show.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits the big screen on July 25th.
