Quentin Tarantino to write Django, Zorro comic book crossover

Los Angeles: Director Quentin Tarantino is taking his favourite character of Django beyond the Oscar-nominated film by writing a comic on it.

The new comic book story will revolve around Django Freeman, the lead character of his 2012 movie where Zorro will also have a role. Tarantino is writing the story with comic book writer Matt Wagner, reported Ace Showbiz.

The `Kill Bill` helmer has already adapted the original script into a graphic novel but in the comic book, the gun-totting hero will set out on a new adventure where he will cross path with the masked swordsman Zorro.

The story is set to be co-plotted by Tarantino along with Wagner who is known for creating acclaimed comic series like `Mage` and `Grendel`.

Reginald Hudlin, who scripted `Django Unchained` comic and produced the movie, will work closely with the writing duo as the editor for the upcoming graphic novel due later this year via Dynamite and DC Entertainment.

"I`m very very excited about both this story and the opportunity to work with Matt," Tarantino said in a statement.

"It was reading his Zorro stories that convinced me what a good idea it was to join these two icons together. And the story idea we came up with is thrilling, and I think will be an exciting new chapter for both characters."
