Django's wife...

Variety has added a bit of news to the earlier report that Jamie Foxx will be playing the title character in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained by reporting we may have a Ray reunion in which Kerry Washington would once again play Foxx's wife.

Is this the obligatory Tarantino comeback role? (as previously seen w/ John Travolta, Robert Forester, David Carradine, etc.)

http://www.deadline.com/2011/07/kevi...ngo-unchained/

Quote:
Quentin Tarantino never has trouble putting together good casts for his films, but his Sergio Leone-style Spaghetti Western Django Unchained is turning out to be quite something. Kevin Costner is in negotiations to join a cast that is headed by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Quote:
Costner is in talks to play Ace Woody, and it's a real surprise turn for an actor most associated with good guy roles. He's the sadistic trainer of the male fighting slaves who entertain the white patrons of Candyland as well as the female slaves who are forced to be prostitutes. The club and ranch are owned by Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and Ace Woody is the one who pits the "mandingo" fighters against one another, and has little qualms about mistreating and even killing the slaves who don't measure up.

I can't see Costner as Woody. I don't think Costner has ever played a "mean" or "bad" dude. He just doesn't come across that way. Unless Costner has some acting chops and can pull out his bad side. Then again, what if Tarantino is not looking at this in terms of bad guy, but more or less this was the reality of the time and Woody is just a normal guy going along with the zeitgeist as so many were. I think that would be more interesting way to look at it anyway.

Costner was pretty bada** in "3000 Miles to Graceland" (an underrated film imo). "Mr. Brooks" was a serial killer role and Costner was fantastic. Would be nice to see him in another bad guy role.

Before Django Unchain arrives in theaters, make sure and check out the film that inspired its name. It's currently streaming on Netflix.

Costner out...

This will be a small item for some people, but I think it’s a shame: while Kevin Coster was reported to be in talks for a supporting role in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming film Django Unchained, we’ve learned the actor ended up having to pass on the role. A tweet from Variety staffer Justin Kroll said, “And in another interesting piece of casting news, Kevin Costner has had to pass on DJANGO UNCHAINED due to scheduling conflicts.”

As far as I'm concerned, Costner will be missed. This role could easily have been the obligatory comeback role QT has in his films (Travolta in Pukp Fiction, David Carradine in Kill Bill). It'll be interesting who they get to replace him...

I don't know why, but I would love to see Kurt Russell again in a QT movie.

Not much news except for the usual talk from the actors. Although we have our first glimpse at the set and (possibly) the soundtrack:

“It’s a blast shooting here. Most other western towns look like dollhouses. This has the complete look. It’s fantastic.”

Quote:
But that’s not all, apparently Quentin has been playing one particular song by Jim Croce throughout his time on set, similarly to the way Sergio Leone did it with Ennio Morricone’s music.



I'm a fan of Jim Croce, although I never remember hearing this song before. Hope it makes it into the movie, it seems like a song you would see it one of those 70's westerns (kinda like how Bob Dylan did Knocking on Heaven's Door for Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid).

That's like saying you're a fan of Indiana Jones but have never seen "The Last Crusade".

I can't fathom who they will try and get. Ford would be interesting to say the least but I doubt he'd do it.

To each their own, but this looks like a solid pass for me.

You know, the funny thing is the screenplay is pretty easily available on the internet... most of the things in the trailer read better on the paper. I'll probably end up seeing it but, based on that trailer, I'm a bit disappointed already. But like they say, can't judge a film by it's trailer or book/cover.

As much as I like westerns, Leo DiCaprio and Foxx I think i'll wait and rent this one. After Death Proof and Inglorious Bastards being big letdowns to me, I'm kina worn out on QT.

QT has lost his edge. Now, watching his movies is like picking up VHS for a dollar at a video store, hoping to find something unique, and in the end, all you get is really campy plotlines.

Inglourious Basterds was phenomenal. I don't understand not wanting to see its follow-up.

I also loved Inglourious Basterds. But that doesn't make this film appear any less vapid. Just because it's a QT flick doesn't automatically make it good to me. I didn't care for Jackie Brown or Deathproof, for example.
