Renowned filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is planning to create a TV show entitled Bounty Law based on the ’60s Western series in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ already revealing in a recent interview that he’s already written five half-hour episodes for the show.
“As far as the Bounty Law shows, I want to do that, but it will take me a year and a half. 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 ended up writing five half-hour episodes. So I’ll do them, and I will direct all of them.”
While it’s clear Tarantino is on board to direct the Bounty Law series, it is uncertain whether Leonardo DiCaprio would star as the leading man, along with the appearance of Brad Pitt.
