Quentin Tarantino is planning to revisit Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with a Bounty Law TV show, based on the ’60s Western series starring Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Rick Dalton as bounty hunter Jake Cahill. The esteemed filmmaker briefly touched on his influences for the fictional show in a recent interview, along with revealing 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,” Tarantino explained. “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 the filmmaker is legitimately on board to direct Bounty Law, the involvement of DiCaprio as the leading man or an appearance from Brad Pitt as stuntman Cliff Booth remain under wraps. However, seeing as both actors have received major awards and nominations for their portrayals, their return as the Hollywood duo doesn’t seem impossible.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Sony is already working on Bad Boys 4.
