Will Smith May Star in Tarantino’s Django Unchained, Plot Details


The original “Django” movies were about a gunfighter with a gatling gun, but Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”, a film inspired by the Italian version, may have a slightly different premise. For one, the hero will be a slave, and none other than Will Smith is being eyed for the lead.

Heat Vision also sheds light on the plot, which would find Smith (if he signs on) as “a freed slave who seeks to reunite with his slave wife, a journey that will see him team with a German bounty hunter to take down an evil plantation owner.” Gotta admit, the idea of Smith in a Tarantino movie is an inspired one. Smith doesn’t usually get this down and dirty in his movies, so if he does come onboard, it would probably be his most, shall we say, family unfriendly film … ever?

Christoph Waltz, who has long been rumored for a role in the movie, is probably a shoo-in as the German bounty hunter who trains Smith’s character in the ways of the gun, since word has Tarantino writing the character specifically for Waltz. Meanwhile, another Tarantino regular, Samuel L. Jackson is also a shoo-in to play “the house slave to the bad guy, Monsieur Calvin Candie. The slave is an expert manipulator and will face off with Django.”

I expect the “n”-word will fly almost as fast and furious as the bullets and blood in this one, kiddies.

    I just want a movie from Tarantino that isn’t banking on a love for a preestablished genre. Please, pretty please

      That and for god sakes man make your own movie!!! Since Pulp Fiction he hasn’t churned out anything new. I’m a huge Tarantino fan but I’m tired of him adapting and rehashing old movies or books that he liked. I wouldn’t mind as much if he didn’t make such stellar films of his own. After all a lot of directors take on and direct other people’s works. Another as kicking script in the vein of Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, True Romance and From Dusk Till Dawn with Tarantino in the directors chair would be a welcomed change.

    I really like the idea of this plot, and casting. if Smith can’t do it, my next choices would be Idris Elba, Michael Jai White, Laurence Fishburne, or Anthony Mackie. As for original ideas, this one is pretty original. Yeah its in a pre-established genres they’re comfortable with but that can be said about alot of directors doing films. Michael Bay, Tim Burton, George Lucas.
