Jamie Foxx Confirmed for Lead Role in Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’Posted: July 8, 2011
Jamie Foxx (Ray, Law Abiding Citizen) has been confirmed as the lead role, Django, in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming movie, Django Unchained. Foxx, will be playing Django; a slave, who after being freed, goes in search of his wife who is still in captivity. Reports have said that he beat the likes of Idris Elba and Will Smith to the role of Django, for Tarantino’s choice as lead role.
Foxx says he is very much looking forward to be working with the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, who is to play a German Bounty Hunter who helps Django, along with Leonardo DiCaprio, who will be playing the slave owner, and of course, Quentin Tarantino himself. As you can see, from such a renowned director, and a brilliant cast, this movie is definitely set to be a box-office hit – one which I very much look forward to watching on the big screen.
Django Unchained is set to hit cinema screens on 25th December, 2012.
