Kevin Costner As A Bad Guy In Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’?Posted: July 18, 2011
Kevin Costner is apparently in talks to star in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, according to numerous sources. He is currently in talks with Tarantino himself, to possibly play the role of Ace Woody, whose main activity consists of training slaves to fight one another in Gladiator-style brawls. An evil role indeed, it will be interesting to say the least, to see how he portrays this character, should he get the role.
Although many may agree that Costner appears to have headed downhill recently, it would seem that he is making a strong comeback, having recently secured roles in numerous upcoming movies, including Zak Snyder‘s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, starring as Jonathan Kent. Costner will be joining an impressive all-star cast: Jamie Foxx as Django the slave who has been freed, in search of his ex-owner, Leonardo DiCaprio, who still has his wife in captivity, along with Samuel L. Jackson, who decides to help Django get his wife back. Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Water for Elephants) will also be starring, as a German bounty hunter. Only the best from talented Tarantino .
Django Unchained is currently due to be released on Christmas day of 2012, although the UK release may be of a later date.
