Jerrod Carmichael continues to make some major moves behind the scenes. For his most recent move, Carmichael is now being linked to notable writer and director Quentin Taratino for a new film that mixes ‘Django Unchained’ with Zoro. Collider reports;
Quentin Tarantino has tapped Jerrod Carmichael to co-write a Django/Zorro movie based on the crossover comic book series of the same name, multiple sources tell Collider.. Written by Tarantino and released by Dynamite Entertainment and DC Comics, the series served as a sequel to the director’s 2012 movie Django Unchained starring Jamie Foxx. The story takes place several years after the events of Django Unchained. Django is still a bounty hunter, and since there’s a warrant on his head back east, he has mainly been plying his trade in the western states. After safely settling his wife, Broomhilda, near Chicago, he takes to the road once again, sending her funds whenever he completes a job. It’s by sheer chance that he encounters the aged and sophisticated Diego de la Vega — the famed Zorro — and soon finds himself fascinated by this unusual character, who can also hold his own in a fight. It’s not long before Django becomes Diego’s ‘bodyguard’ and joins him on a mission to free the local indigenous people from slavery.
