Quentin Tarantino already has his next project lined up, and though he wouldn't say anything about the script, he did reveal the genre.

"It's a western," Tarantino said Tuesday on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," adding that it was the first time he was speaking publicly about the project.

"It's not a 'Django [Unchained]' sequel, but it's another western," the writer-director said. " ... I had so much fun doing 'Django,' and I love westerns so much, that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like, Well, okay, let me make another one now [that] I know what I'm doing."

It certainly seemed that Tarantino knew what he was doing the first time around, since "Django Unchained" snagged the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and Christoph Waltz won the Best Supporting Actor prize. But clearly, he has more to say with the genre (his "Tonight Show" appearance was in support of a new graphic novel series based on "Django"), so it makes sense that he'd return to familiar, successful well for his next feature.

No timeframe for the project was discussed, but Tarantino said he's busy writing now. Maybe his new western can make awards show magic again in 2015.
