Hello chaps,

I still maintain that Tarantino wrote Django Unchained because it’s his script.

It’s the very first draft of the script in fact… so it does include cut scenes from the final movie-edit.

Reginald Hudlin’s job is to ‘translate’ the layouts into the language of comic books.

For example: if there’s a close-up (in the movie) of Django slowly shaking his head in silence, Hudlin might communicate that moment with the word “no”.

The story-beats, narrative delivery and dialog are unquestionably Tarantino’s (if you’ve seen the movie or know his work).

Hudlin isn’t taking the source material and adapting it into a new thing, his job is logistics.

So to call him the ‘writer’ is a stretch.

Neither Quentin Tarantino or Reginald Hudlin are the ‘writer’ on this book… as Snyder or Bendis are on others.

It’s a different process.

The point in this case, is to deliver Quentin’s original story (which he very definitely wrote) inside a comic book…

and If you’re the marketing team, you’ll obviously celebrate the fact that this story won an Oscar.

Just sayin. I’m happy to fight Scott to the death on this.

I recently made a ‘Scott Vanderploeg wrestling-buddy’ – so we’re all good if it all goes off.
