CANNES, France, May 23 (UPI) -- Quentin Tarantino may turn Django Unchained into a miniseries.

The 51-year-old director suggested the idea during a Cannes Film Festival press conference Friday. His 1994 Palm d'Or-winning film Pulp Fiction was screened that day to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Tarantino revealed he has 90 minutes of unseen footage from Django Unchained. He said a miniseries would ideally use "all the material," and "wouldn't be an endurance test."

"People love those!" he exclaimed. "It's funny. You present someone with a four-hour movie and they roll their eyes... But you show them a four-part miniseries that they like and they're dying to watch all four episodes in a row."

The Django adaptation is only an idea as of now, but the director also mentioned he has resumed work on The Hateful Eight.

"I'm still in the process of writing it, finishing the second draft, and then I intend to do a third draft," he said. "Maybe I'll shoot it, maybe I'll publish it, maybe I'll do it on the stage... Maybe I'll do all three."
