Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ Gets Release DatePosted: June 15, 2011
The latest movie classic in the works by blood-loving director, Quentin Tarantino, “Django Unchained“, is reportedly set to hit cinema screens on December 25, 2012, by film studio, The Weinstein Company. The movie, with a Spaghetti Western-style story, focuses on an American slave, Django, who has been freed and joins forces with a German bounty hunter, in the hope to save his wife from a plantation owner, Calvin Candie.
The latest news has it that Leonardo DiCaprio, is in talks to be playing Candie. I think it would be very interesting to have DiCaprio playing the bad guy, considering he tends to play the role of the protagonist in most movies he is in. Samuel L. Jackson, is also rumoured to be having a role in the movie, along with Christoph Waltz, who may be playing the German bounty hunter. However, no one has been cast as Django yet.
Quentin Tarantino, director of a range of classics, including Inglorious Basterds, Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction, and renowned writer, is definitely one of my favourite directors, and has built a reputation as a legend in the movie industry, being considered to be in the same category as such directors as Spielberg and Scorsese. Personally, I look forward to this movie, and with a brilliant cast, I have high hopes for Django Unchained.
Keep tuned for more movie news and rumours.
