Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he going to direct all five episodes of Bounty Law, an upcoming limited event series based on the fictional TV series of the same name seen in his 2019 movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
He tells Deadline:
“As far as the ‘Bounty Law’ shows, I want to do that, but it will take me a year and a half. I ended up writing five half-hour episodes. So I’ll do them, and I will direct all of them.
It got an introduction from ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,’ but I don’t really consider it part of that movie even though it is. This is not about Rick Dalton playing Jake Cahill. It’s about Jake Cahill. Where all this came from was, I ended up watching a bunch of ‘Wanted, Dead or Alive‘, and ‘The Rifleman,’ and ‘Tales of Wells Fargo,’ these half-hour shows to get in the mindset of ‘Bounty Law,’ the kind of show Rick was on.
I’d liked them before, but I got really into them. The concept of telling a dramatic story in half an hour. You watch and think, wow, there’s a helluva lot of storytelling going on in 22 minutes. I thought, I wonder if I can do that?”
I can’t imagine this happening without Leonardo DiCaprio. Good news to go along with the four hour cut of the main film.
