Hard to believe that Quentin Tarantino has already slotted his bloody Western “Django Unchained” for Christmas of this year, especially since he’s still shooting the movie as we speak. Not to mention losing and adding castmembers. It’s not as if Tarantino is known for doing things quickly; the guy is notorious for taking his time on everything. I wouldn’t be surprise if we hear that the release date for “Django Unchained” has been moved, though. Until then, check out five new official images from the Western.
The film stars Jamie Foxx as the titular Django, a former slave turned bounty hunter in the American Wild West, who seeks justice when Leonardo DiCaprio’s slavemaster absconds with his wife, the awesomely named Broomhilda, played by Kerry Washington. Much fighting, shooting, and no doubt, clever conversations about random things abound. Maybe Tarantino can spend 5 minutes having two characters talk about the pros and cons of outhouses? Don’t laugh. It’s entirely possible.
Also starring Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Don Johnson, RZA, Gerald McRaney, Anthony LaPaglia, James Russo, and M.C. Gainey.
Django gets his revenge on December 25, 2012.
