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.

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.

I can see that, but you can't say it's any worse than the last part of Dark Knight.

Yep, I saw an interview with him that the ending got changed during shooting by him not any pressure from the studio. He said something to the effect of "I have total control over my movies. That is never an issue." The question was did the studio pressure for a more happy ending?

Will Smith needs to learn from Brad Pitt. He was a main lead but not the end all be all in the movie. Everyone will remember the "Killing Nazi's" speech, Trying to talk German and "I want my scalps" forever. It's movie lore now.

Interesting. I really like the movie, but it's the only one of his that to me doesn't flow right at the end like that.
