Quentin Tarantino’s Spaghetti Western Will be Called Django Unchained

Fans of chatty and bloody Westerns unite! Quentin Tarantino has revealed the title of his long-in-development Spaghetti Western: “Django Unchained”.

Although no official plot has been released yet, Empire guesses that the movie will be heavily influenced by “Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 Spaghetti Western Django, which saw Franco Nero as a Gatling gun-slinger who goes through seven shades of hell.” According to IMDB.com, there has been three movies in the series, staring with the 1966 original, and including its sequel, 1968’s “Django, Prepare a Coffin” and 1987’s “Django Strikes Again”, all three starring Nero as the titular gunslinger.

Besides Nero possibly reprising the role, “Inglourious Basterds'” Christoph Waltz has also been linked to it in some shape or form over the years.
