Quentin’s comic foray

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY MOVIES -

Quentin Tarantino (pic­tured) is turn­ing his all-star western movie Django Un­chained into a comic book se­ries. The Pulp Fic­tion di­rec­tor made the sur­prise an­nounce­ment at the re­cent Comic-Con event in San Diego, when he crashed a dis­cus­sion panel for DC Comics’ Be­fore Watch­men to un­veil his own plans for a five-is­sue se­ries of graphic nov­els. And Tarantino ad­mit­ted the project would tie in closely with his up­com­ing slave drama, telling fans: ‘‘The comic will lit­er­ally be the first draft of the script.’’ Ear­lier, Tarantino joined his Django Un­chained stars Jamie Foxx, Kerry Wash­ing­ton and Christoph Waltz to dis­cuss the con­cept of the movie with fans. The film is due for re­lease in Aus­tralia in Jan­uary. The comic books are also expected to go on sale next year.
