Thompson on Hollywood

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to join Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained (check out the already awesome cast). His schedule is tight but having Premium Rush moved from a January to August 2012 release should help, as Tarantino intends to start shooting Django in New Orleans in January, when Gordon-Levitt would have been busy doing Rush press. With this film, plus Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln coming up, Gordon-Levitt shouldn't be too discouraged if he doesn't manage to build the momentum necessary for a 50/50 Oscar nomination. He's just getting started.

    Is the film already funded? Seems QT is doing a lot buzz casting leaks.

    There can't possibly be enough characters in this movie to justify the endless casting announcements. I mean seriously, every 3 days it's "so and so is in talks to join Django Unchained." Unless QT is casting major actors in roles like slave no. 2, I don't see it. Who he should be casting is Michael Madsen who was wonderful in Reservoir Dogs & Kill Bill. Everything else he does seems to go straight to dvd but he always shines in a QT film.

    Quentin Tarantino should cast some straight to DVD kings in this to relaunch their careers.
