Fans of Quentin Tarantino and Django Unchained, read on for some potentially very exciting news.

The director has been busy at the Cannes film festival today, where he told an audience that he’s giving serious thought to developing a special four hour mini-series of the Oscar winning Western which starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz

“I have about 90 minutes worth of material with Django,” Tarantino revealed. “It hasn’t been seen. My idea, frankly, is to cut together a four-hour version of Django Unchained.

The director went on to give more detail about the exciting news, including how he would envisage it being shown.

“I wouldn’t show it like a four hour movie. 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.”

“We’d use all the material I have and it wouldn’t be an endurance test. It would be a mini-series. And people love those,” Tarantino said.

“People roll their eyes at a four-hour movie. But a four-hour mini-series that they like, then they are dying to watch all four parts. That’s how I thought it could work,” he said.
