It’s official. Jamie Foxx has signed on to play the lead character in Quentin Tarantino’s next film, “Django”.
I don’t remember liking Foxx that much in anything outside of “Ray” (Which was incredible), but we’ll see how that goes this weekend, when I check out “Horrible Bosses”. Regardless, I have to say, I could NOT wrap my head around the idea of Will Smith in a Quentin Tarantino movie. For those of you who hadn’t heard, Smith was reportedly Tarantino’s first choice.
“Django” will also star Leonard DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz. It will be a revenge tale revolving around a freed slave (Django – Foxx) teaming up with a German bounty (Waltz) hunter to get revenge on his former plantation owner (DiCaprio) and free the woman he loves.
I don’t think I’ve ever heard the high concept of a Tarantino movie and not gone, “Huh”? There’s always just that touch of crazy to it. A slavery/revenge tale sounds reasonable enough, but… where does a German bounty hunter fit in? LOL. That’s Q.T. for you folks.
What do you think? Anyone a big Tarantino fan out there?
