2.9: Merchandise Unchained

December 18, 2012

ScreenCrave is reporting that Quentin Tarantino’s Spaghetti Western Django Unchained is being adapted into a comic book.

My first thought after reading the headline was Come on Tarantino, you’re better than this… Upon further reading, however, it’s clear that this isn’t just cash grab merchandising; a whole lot of content that Tarantino wrote couldn’t be added to the movie because of the already long runtime.

This comic book will be an adaptation of everything that Tarantino wrote, including the unused content. This is breathing life into material that would otherwise be dead, and that’s something which every creative person should respect.

There are few things in creative industries as sad as the Cemetery of Unused Ideas, and Tarantino is setting an example which we should all try to follow.
