Jamie Foxx to star in Tarantinos next "Django Unchained"

Wow, at first glance sounds like oil and water....but im down with this in a weird way. QT hasnt let me down yet.


http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...trunner-186250


Will Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to star in Quentin Tarantinoís next film, Django Unchained, a spaghetti Western about a slave in the Old South who teams with a German bounty hunter to search for his wife.

Tarantino stalwarts Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz also are circling key parts.

The film, Tarantinoís follow-up to his worldwide blockbuster Inglourious Basterds, will be distributed domestically by the Weinstein Co., but Tarantino is in the process of selecting a studio partner to release the film internationally. Sources say he was meeting with Universal executives Friday, and similar meetings with Sony, Paramount, Warner Bros. and possibly others have been scheduled.

Sources prepped for those meetings say Tarantino would like Smith to star in the film, the script for which has been making the rounds in recent days to wide acclaim. No official offer has been made to Smith, and any deal would of course be subject to working out financials, which might be difficult given Smith's status as one of Hollywood's few sure-thing stars.


Indeed, though Smith has been out of multiplexes since 2008ís Seven Pounds, he is still considered among the top two or three box-office draws worldwide.

Smith is being teed up for the title role of Django, a freed slave who seeks to reunite with his slave wife, a journey that will see him team with a German bounty hunter to take down an evil plantation owner.

Tarantino wrote the bounty hunter part with Waltz in mind, according to insiders. The German ends up training Django and helping him seek his wife.

Jackson would play the house slave to the bad guy, Monsieur Calvin Candie. The slave is an expert manipulator and will face off with Django.

Smith and his reps have received the screenplay, which could be a hot potato due to the themes of racism and the liberal use of the N-word. It's unclear whether Smith has read the script yet. The actor manages his image very carefully, but the part is heroic and could be iconic. And letís not forget that Denzel Washington won his two Oscars playing characters who used the N-word.


Tarantino is aiming for a fall shoot in the South, possibly in Louisiana, but the exact locale has not been determined.

I saw this yesterday, and it was amazing. But I am a QT fan. The acting is brilliant. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.

Arguably QT's best work.

And Will Smith never could have pulled this off. Foxx was the perfect choice.

I think it is.

Some will probably complain that it's about 30-40 minutes too long, but I thought it was excellent.

I think its a lesser QT work. It's very entertaining, that's for sure. And to me it doesn't feel as long as its running time.

But its really nothing more than its spaghetti western influence. The characters are paper-thin. It's a cartoon. It's dripping with white guilt. But it's very well-made.

Its controversy is its most powerful (only?) artistic statement. You and the others in your audience might find yourselves laughing at awkward times, or laughing at places that you have to question yourselves about later. The conversations that will arise from this film about what is OK to laugh at and what isn't is Django Unchained's signature piece of artistic merit.

I think Will Smith would do himself and his career a great service if he'd take on an "edgier" role now and then. I believe he has the acting chops to go into a darker, more interesting place. Seems like he's made a conscious decision not to. I can respect that.

My thoughts exactly, and I think we discussed this a bit earlier in the thread?

Hes very image conscious and the rumor is thats why he turned down the role. Anyhow, I hear Foxx is very good, maybe he will get a career bump from it. He was sorta hot a few years ago, then faded after his run at an Oscar with Ray.

From what I have read/heard, Smith didn't turn down the role, QT decided he wasn't right for it.
