Quentin Tarantino has put the finishing touches to his eighth film, Django Unchained, but he’s already looking into the future and a possible collaboration with Johnny Depp.

The Pulp Fiction mastermind revealed that he often speaks to Johnny about teaming up to create celluloid ‘magic’ but he needs to write the perfect character for the Edward Scissorhands star.

Quentin said: “We would love to work together.

“We’ve talked about it for years. Not that we get together and talk about it for years, but from time to time.

“We’re obviously fans of each other. It just needs to be the right character. I just need to write the right character that I think Johnny would be the right guy to do it with.

“And if he agrees, then we’ll do it. And then it’ll be magical.

“I haven’t written the perfect character for Johnny Depp as of yet. Maybe someday I will, maybe someday I won’t. We’ll see.”

Hollywood tales of partnerships and hero films with Quentin at the helm abound when he is set to release a new film, but hearing Depp plying his craft with Tarantino’s infamous dialogue would be a special treat.

Django Unchained opens in UK cinemas on 18 January 2013.
