Afternoon Links: Tarantino’s Doing Another Western

Quentin Tarantino visited Jay Leno on Tuesday night and had a subtle announcement to share: He’s not making a Django Unchained sequel, but he is doing another Western next. “The thing is, I had so much fun doing Django and I love Westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like, ‘Well, OK, now let me make another one now I know what I’m doing.'” He also called Leno “mate” a couple times, though, so maybe this is all cover for QT’s big Australia movie.
