It was kind of surprising to learn that there were Django Unchained action figures made, and it’s now disappointing they’re being discontinued after receiving multiple nasty complaints. Django Unchained is a brutal movie about a brutal period in American history, and I suppose people felt the toys downplayed the seriousness of the crimes of the era.
It seems that in every Tarantino movie, someone has their signature weapon. Whether it’s Butch’s pawn shop samurai sword in Pulp Fiction, The Bride’s Hattori Hanzo sword in Kill Bill, a 1971 Chevy Nova in Death Proof or the Bear Jew’s baseball bat in Inglourious Basterds, there’s always that one weapon. And in Django Unchained, we’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio with a hammer. Oh, I bet that hammer’s gonna meet some brains.
After it had been widely speculated that Will Smith might be taking the lead role in Quentin Tarantino’s next film Django Unchained, it now looks like that part will be going to Jamie Foxx. Foxx will play a runaway slave who is on the search for his wife after being freed by a German bounty hunter.
With the script to Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Django Unchained just completed, there’s already rumors on who might play the lead: Will Smith. The film follows a runaway slave teaming up with a German bounty hunter on a search for the slave’s wife.
Years ago, Quentin Tarantino defined his next couple movies as “his WWII film”, which was of course Inglourious Basterds and then “his Western”, which we know that he’s been working on a script for currently. Or perhaps more accurately, Uma Thurman described the film as a “southern”, in that it takes place during the same period of time as a Western (late 1800s) and has some cowboys and whatnot in it, but that it takes place more in the south than in the west. Okay.
