Quentin Tarantino
is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival debut of “Pulp Ficton” this week, so what better time is there to plan his next project?

USA Today reports that the legendary director told the crowd – fittingly at Cannes – that he was planning a four-hour “Django Unchained” miniseries.

“I have about 90 minutes worth of material with ‘Django,’” he explained (via “USA Today”), later adding, “I would cut it up into hour chapters. Like a four-part mini-series. And show it on cable television. Show it like an hour at a time, each chapter.”

Tarantino came up with the idea for the mini because people generally aren’t keen on four-hour movies.

One whole section of the Oscar-winning project fans know was cut was the backstory of Zoe Bell’s mysterious veiled character.

“I don’t know how much Quentin wants me to say, but yes, there was originally more than that,” she said. She also said, “Yes and there was a little sneaky secret under the mask.”
