Tarantino's Basterds Prequel/Sequel (TBA)

During a recent interview with The New York Times Quentin revealed he has plans for a prequel to Inglourious Basterds. “I have a half-written prequel ready to go if this movie’s a smash.” The film would be a prequel focusing on a group of African-American soldiers trapped behind enemy lines. Tarantino also mentions about a possible sequel as well, “Once the Basterds get through with Europe, they could go to the South and do it to the Kluxers in the ’50s. That’s another story you could tell.” This sequel sounds like something else he mentioned in a 2007 interview with the UK Telegraph. He was planning a new genre, a form of spaghetti western set in America's Deep South which he calls "a southern". I could easily see both the prequel and southern becoming one film. I'd love to see a bunch of African-American WW2 soliders taking down Nazis and the Klan in a massive shoot em up.
