The buzz and excitement that constantly surrounds a new Quentin Tarantino flick is staggering, and after the superb Inglorious Basterds, everyone is desperate to see how the director brings his latest film to the big screen. Django Unchained is, quite rightly so, one of the most anticipated films of next year, and news today that a teaser poster has now been confirmed to be real, should help fans quench their thirst for all things Tarantino, for now…
Going for the ultimate stripped down, minimalistic look, Tarantino doesn’t even need to put the title of his film on the poster! Check it out below.
As always, the director has bagged himself a truly astonishing cast which includes Jamie Foxx as the former slave turned bounty hunter searching for his wife, Leonardo DiCapio as the villain (yes!!!) Calvin Candie, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Christoph Waltz, Sacha Baron Coen, Kerry Washington, Anthony LaPaglia, James Russo, Walton Goggins, RZA, James Remar and Don Johnson. Now, let’s remember that Will Smith turned down the role Jamie Foxx is playing!
Tarantino also wrote the film, which is due for release in UK cinemas on 18th January 2013.
Walton Goggins, who only recently joined the cast, was interviewed by GQ the other day, here is what he said:
“This movie is radical. It’s like a kid walking into a candy store, to use a trite, overused metaphor. I can’t believe it. I just started work this week, and my very first day, I’m looking up, and there’s Quentin. I’m in Quentin’s world, in his imagination.
“His cinematic acumen is unparalleled, and he’s able to draw from all these resources, which are all the movies that have ever been made. He’s seen most, if not all of them, and he really is an auteur. He’s a savant auteur who is as passionate and as playful as any artist I’ve ever worked with. His enthusiasm is infectious, and the story is a movie that only Quentin Tarantino could make.”
Former dentist, Dr. King Schultz, buys the freedom of a slave, Django, and trains him to become his deputy bounty hunter. Instead, he is led to the site of Django’s wife who is under the hands of Calvin Candie, a ruthless plantation owner.
