Tarantino will shoot Django this November in New Orleans; the Weinsteins are lined up to distribute the film in the US, and Sony handling foreign distribution. We. Can't. Wait.
The story follows Django (Foxx), a slave freed and trained as a bounty hunter by sophisticated German (Waltz), who is appalled by the racist ways of the antebellum South, and helps to prepare Django to face plantation owner Candie (DiCaprio) so that he can rescue his wife, Broomhilda (Washington). Jackson will play Candie’s right hand man/head house slave. Here's more on how the cast came together.
