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 Tarantino’s 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, Tarantino’s 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 2008’s 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 let’s 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.

It should always make you squirm and be uncomfortable.

That's the point.

The most striking aspect of the movie for me was that the violence against the "bad guys" was over the top with fountains of blood squirting everywhere. The violence against the slaves was always off camera or implied without showing it. The contrast served to highlight the realism of the latter in a very effective and disturbing way. I've never felt more uncomfortable hearing the N-word so much as in this movie.

I thought the movie handled an important subject in a film that was simultaneously respectful and entertaining.

To be antagonistic, I have no idea what one of those bullets does to a human being so I can't truly hate on the blood squirting.

the scene where he took out the guy hightailing it across that field was impressive. the entry and exit wound was at the correct angle. i like that attention to detail

to be honest i wasn't bothered by the language one bit. it fit perfectly with the story and didn't seem over the top or excessive at all. in fact, qt's own language in pulp fiction was more uncomfortable for me than this entire movie.

Yeah, the same thought occurred to me. QT as a scrawny white guy with a high pitched voice throwing the "N" word around in a whiny way didn't really fit for me in Pulp Fiction. He didn't have the acting ability to pull it off.

Heh yea...even more interesting was the Stephen(Samual L. Jackson's) character reaction to that.

I got a kick out of when Django got to pick out his own outfit.......then picks out the loudest outfit in the store.

Jamie Foxx was perfect for that role. I can't imagine Will Smith having done that. Leo was pretty good too. However, Samuel L Jackson made it for me. He kept cracking me up.

It wasn't overused. Considering the time period, it might have been underused.

Absolutely loved the movie. If Tarantino was trying to create a commentary on white guilt, he did a damn good job of it. I almost turned around and apologized to the black people sitting behind me after the movie.

I still don't really care for the mask scene in this film. Don't get me wrong, it was funny, but it was just out of place to me. Outside of this film, that scene is funny, but within the film it wasn't needed at all.
